The global attraction is established for all finite energy solutions to a model formula11-invariant nonlinear Klein-Gordon equation in one dimension coupled to a finite number of nonlinear oscillators: We prove that each finite energy solution converges as formula13 to the set of all "nonlinear eigenfunctions" of the form formula15 if all oscillators are strictly nonlinear, and the distances between all neighboring oscillators are sufficiently small. The global attraction is caused by the nonlinear energy transfer from lower harmonics to the continuous spectrum and subsequent dispersive radiation. This result for one oscillator was obtained in [KK07].

We construct counterexamples showing that the convergence to the solitary waves may break down if the distance between some of the neighboring oscillators is sufficiently large or if some of the oscillators are harmonic. In these cases, the global attractor can contain "multifrequency solitary waves" or linear combinations of distinct solitary waves.
