Chimera states achieve the coexistence of coherent and incoherent subgroups through symmetry breaking and emerge in physical, chemical, and biological systems. We show the presence of amplitude-mediated multicluster chimera states in nonlocally coupled Stuart–Landau oscillators. We clarify the prerequisites for having different types of chimera states by analytically and numerically studying how phase transitions occur between these states. Our results demonstrate how the oscillation amplitudes interact with the phase degrees of freedom in chimera states and significantly advance our understanding of the generation mechanisms of such states in coupled oscillator systems.
