    Dielectric nonlinearity is an important characteristic of ferroelectrics. Based on the characteristics of hysteresis loops and [variant_greek_epsilon]-E curves in ferroelectric materials, a model for dielectric nonlinearity of ferroelectrics is established. It is verified by the data of barium...
