We investigate in detail the nonlinear and chaotic dynamics of the Colpitts oscillator. We show that we can control the dynamics of the oscillator by either inductors, capacitors or resistors in the emitter or collector network. We find the bifurcation diagram and the Lyapunov exponent of the oscillator and investigate them. We also find bifurcation diagram in 2D space when two parameters from the mentioned parameters are variables. The 2D diagram shows the nonlinear behaviour of the system more clearly.
