Selected dynamical modes are investigated for the autonomous system formed from a dc biased Josephson junction which is resistively coupled to a resonant tank. A hysteretic zone in the current-voltage characteristic is shown to result from coexisting chaotic and periodic states. The detailed features of these states, including the geometrical structure of the attractors and their basins of attraction, as well as thermally induced transitions between them, are explored.
