A large toolbox of numerical schemes for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation has been established, based on different discretization techniques such as discretizing the variation-of-constants formula (e.g., exponential integrators) or splitting the full equation into a series of simpler subproblems (e.g., splitting methods). In many situations these classical schemes allow a precise and efficient approximation. This, however, drastically changes whenever “non-smooth’’ phenomena enter the scene such as for problems at low-regularity and high oscillations. Classical schemes fail to capture the oscillatory parts within the solution which leads to severe instabilities and loss of convergence. In this talk I present a new class of Fourier integrators for the nonlinear Schrödinger equation at low-regularity. The key idea in the construction of the new schemes is to tackle and hardwire the underlying structure of resonances into the numerical discretization.​ These terms are the cornerstones of theoretical analysis of the long time behaviour of differential equations and their numerical discretizations (cf. modulated Fourier Expansion; Hairer, Lubich & Wanner) and offer the new schemes strong geometric structure at low regularity.​
