We explore a new asymptotic-numerical solver for the time-dependent wave equation with an interaction term that is oscillating in time with a very high frequency. The method involves representing the solution as an asymptotic series in inverse powers of the oscillation frequency. Using the new scheme, high accuracy is achieved at a low computational cost. Salient features of the new approach are highlighted by a numerical example.
