Summary: A method of time-discretizing soliton equations is presented. The method is based on the bilinear formalism. The soliton equations are transformed into the bilinear forms through the dependent variable transformations. Time-discretization of the bilinear forms are easily performed using the gauge invariance of the bilinear forms but difficulties arise from transforming the bilinear equations into the nonlinear difference equations of ordinary form.
