## Abstract

We consider a class of nonlinear Schrödinger equations (conservative and dispersive systems) with localized and dispersive solutions. We obtain a class of initial conditions, for which the asymptotic behavior (*t*→±∞) of solutions is given by a linear combination of nonlinear bound state (time periodic and spatially localized solution) of the equation and a purely dispersive part (decaying to zero with time at the free dispersion rate). We also obtain a result of*asymptotic stability* type: given data near a nonlinear bound state of the system, there is a nonlinear bound state of nearby energy and phase, such that the difference between the solution (adjusted by a phase) and the latter disperses to zero. It turns out that in general, the time-period (and energy) of the localized part is different for*t*→+∞ from that for*t*→−∞. Moreover the solution acquires an extra constant asymptotic phase*e*^{ iy }^{±}.
