Abstract

Using an electronic analog of a resistively shunted driven Josephson junction, the authors have demonstrated a number of effects, including the appearance of a devil's staircase in the current-voltage characteristic, the onset of chaos, and the effect of noise on these phenomena. It is stressed that the analog is simple, but models the junction behavior with a high degree of accuracy and detail
