Abstract: In this paper we describe an algorithm which can be used to approximate the solution to the enthalpy formulation of the Stefan problem. We allow the thermal properties to have a space and temperature dependence. The algorithm is not explicit in the time variable and, hence, the stability condition on $ \Delta t$ is not too severe. A proof of convergence is given and two numerical examples are presented.
