We consider the coupled Schršodinger-KdV system
i(ut + c1ux) + 1uxx = uv
vt + c2vx + 2vxxx + (v2)x = (|u|2)x,
which arises in various physical contexts as a model for the interaction of long and
short nonlinear waves. Ground states of the system are, by definition, minimizers of
the energy functional subject to constraints on conserved functionals associated with
symmetries of the system. In particular, ground states have a simple time
dependence because they propagate via those symmetries. For a range of values of
the parameters , , , i, ci, we prove the existence and stability of a two-parameter
