Pulse generation in mode-locked lasers with fast saturable absorbers were studied using complex Ginzburg-Landau equation (CGLE) approach. The pulsating behavior of solitons of the CGLE were analyzed and regions of their existance in the five-dimensional parameter space were calculated. The chaotic pulsating solitons were found and the coexistance (bi-and multistability) of different types of pulsating solutions in certain regions of the parameter space of the CGLE were demonstrated.
