Chaos beyond the onset in ac-driven phase slip centers

Chaos beyond the onset for the generalized time-dependent Ginzburg-Landau equations exhibits generic behavior. We present qualitative and quantitative evidence of a multifractal phase transition and of a symmetry-increasing bifurcation. We also discuss the underlying mechanisms of these phenomena.
