In this paper, the bifurcation trees of periodic motions in a parametrically excited pendulum are studied using discrete implicit maps. From the discrete maps, mapping structures are developed for periodic motions in such a parametric pendulum. Analytical bifurcation trees of periodic motions to chaos are developed through the nonlinear algebraic equations of such implicit maps in the specific mapping structures. The corresponding stability and bifurcation analysis of periodic motions is carried out. Finally, numerical results of periodic motions are presented. Many new periodic motions in the parametrically excited pendulum are discovered.
