“Background In recent years, the nonlinear electrical conductivity behavior of nanoparticle-modified polymers has received considerable attention by researchers, and several studies have been carried out to investigate the current-voltage characteristics of conductive nanocomposites. Even though several studies investigated the nonohmic conductivity behavior of insulator polymers filled with conductive spherical and stick-like inclusions [1–5], to the best of the authors’ knowledge, all of the research in this field has been limited to experimental works.
