A Deuflhard-type exponential integrator sine pseudospectral (DEI-SP) method is proposed and analyzed for solving the generalized improved Boussinesq (GIBq) equation. The numerical scheme is based on a second-order exponential integrator for time integration and a sine pseudospectral discretization in space. Rigorous analysis and abundant experiments show that the method converges quadratically and spectrally in time and space, respectively. Finally the DEI-SP method is applied to investigate the complicated and interesting long-time dynamics of the GIBq equation.
