Motivated by recent experiments in which a voltage-biased Josephson junction is placed in series with a resonator, the classical dynamics of the circuit is studied in various domains of parameter space. This problem can be mapped onto the dissipative motion of a single degree of freedom in a nonlinear time-dependent potential, where in contrast to conventional settings the nonlinearity appears in the driving while the static potential is purely harmonic. For long times the system approaches steady states which are analyzed in the underdamped regime over the full range of driving parameters including the fundamental resonance as well as higher harmonics and subharmonics. Observables such as the dc-Josephson current and the radiated microwave power give direct information about the underlying dynamics covering phenomena such as bifurcations, irregular motion, and up- and down-conversion. Due to their tunability, present and future setups provide versatile platforms to exp lore the changeover from linear response to strongly nonlinear behavior in driven dissipative systems under well defined conditions. © 2015 American Physical Society.
