Abstract: We generalize Colding and Minicozzi's work (2012) on the stability of hypersurface self-shrinkers to higher co-dimension. The first and second variation formulae of the $ F$-functional are derived and an equivalent condition to the stability in general co-dimension is found. We also prove that $ \mathbb{R}^n$ is the only stable product self-shrinker and show that the closed embedded Lagrangian self-shrinkers constructed by Anciaux are unstable.
