A finite element method and implicit time steps are used to determine the price of an American option. The algorithm of Brennan and Schwartz is adapted to this situation and we prove convergence. Numerical tests confirm the theoretical result and lead to a smaller error for the same computational effort, compared to the finite difference method.
