We present a regularized finite difference method for the logarithmic Schr ̈odingerequation (LogSE) and establish its error bound. Due to the blowup of the logarithmic nonlinearity, i.e., ln ρ→ −\infty when ρ→0+v with ρ = |u|^2 being the density and u being the complex-valuedwave function or order parameter, there are significant difficulties in designing numerical methodsand establishing their error bounds for the LogSE. In order to suppress the roundoff error and toavoid blowup, a regularized LogSE (RLogSE) is proposed with a small regularization parameter 0 < ε << 1 and linear convergence is established between the solutions of RLogSE and LogSE interm of ε. Then a semi-implicit finite difference method is presented for discretizing the RLogSEand error estimates are established in terms of the mesh sizehand time stepτas well as the smallregularization parameterε. Finally numerical results are reported to illustrate our error bounds.
