Abstract: We introduce a Crank-Nicolson scheme to study numerically the long-time behavior of solutions to a one dimensional damped forced nonlinear Schrödinger equation. We prove the existence of a smooth global attractor for these discretized equations. We also provide some numerical evidences of this asymptotical smoothing effect.

Keywords:  Finite differences, stability, multilevel decomposition.
