In this paper, an infinite determinant method is presenstd for stability analysis of parametrically excited systems. Unstable regions of the combination parametric resonance as well as principal resonance can be identified with the method. A numerical problem of relatively large amplitude of excitation is solved, and the results of the presented method are compared to those of the multiple scales perturbation method. It is found that the presented method obtains more accurate transition curves which divide stable and unstables in the parameter plane than those of the multiple scales perturbation method.
