In this paper, bifurcation trees of independent period-2 motions to chaos are investigated in a parametrically excited pendulum. The implicit discrete mapping method is employed to obtain periodic motions in such a system. Analytical predictions of periodic motions are based on the mapping structures and peroidicity. The bifurcation trees of independent period-2 motions to chaos are studied, and the corresponding stability and bifurcation analysis are completed through eigenvalue analysis. Finally, sampled period-2 motions are simulated numerically in comparison to the analytical predictions. The infinite bifurcation trees of independent period-2 motions to chaos can be obtained.
