The Ginzburg-Landau (GL) equation with real coefficients is a model equation appearing in superconductor physics and near-critical hydrodynamic stability problems. The stationary GL equation has a two-parameter (I-1,I-2) family of spatially quasi-periodic (QP) states with frequencies (omega(1) omega(2)) and frequency map with determinant Delta(K) = partial derivative(omega(1),omega(2))/partial derivative(I-1,I-2) In this paper the linear stability of these QP states is studied and an expression for the stability exponent is obtained which has a novel geometric interpretation in terms of Delta(K): when Delta(K) < 0 the spatially QP state is unstable and Delta(K) > 0 is a necessary but not sufficient condition for linear stability. There is an interesting relation between Delta(K) and the KAM persistence theorem for invariant toroids.
