...And is h[ ] a function or a constant?

If f(t, u) = -i u then why include the t in the notation?

You have
$\displaystyle u( t_{n+1} ) = u( t_{n} ) + h [ ( 1 - \theta) f( t_{n} , u( t_{n} ) ) + \theta f( t_{n+1},u( t_{n+1}) ) ]$

$\displaystyle u( t_{n+1} ) = u( t_{n} ) + h [ ( 1 - \theta) ( -i u( t_{n} ) + \theta ( -i u( t_{n+1}) ) ]$

$\displaystyle u( t_{n+1} ) = u( t_{n} ) + h [ -i u( t_{n} ) + i \theta \left \{ u( t_{n}) - ~ u( t_{n+1}) \right \} ]$

That's as far as I can help until you define the h[ ] thing.

Asking you to elaborate seems to be like pulling teeth. What is the theta method?
