We study the discretization of a nonlinear parabolic system arising in two­phase flows, which in a spe-
cial case reduces to the Kuramoto­Sivashinsky equation, by linearly implicit methods, and in particular
by implicit­explicit multistep methods. We carry out extensive numerical experiments to investigate the
accuracy and efficiency of these algorithms with extremely satisfactory results. These numerical exper-
iments establish the analyticity of the solution and the existence of global attractors (rigorous proofs of
such results for this system are not available). Our numerical experiments yield a sharp estimate for
