In the present chapter, the principles of the boundary element methods for phase change problems over domains with moving boundaries are developed in brief details. The details are developed starting from the 1-D diffusion problems over domains with fixed boundaries subjected to different types of boundary and initial conditions. In these problems, a new criterion has appeared: the existence of the moving boundary, which requires special treatment when solving overall problems.

Keywords: Boundary elements methods, moving boundary problems, Stefan condition.
