Standing waves are time-periodic solutions of the nonlinear Schrödinger equation having a special form. It is natural to investigate their stability with respect to perturbations of the initial condition. Orbital stability is the appropriate notion but the Hamiltonian structure of the problem means that a linearized analysis is insufficient to establish stability. After reviewing the main issues involved in such a study, we shall give a survey some results on this topic.
