The authors give a computer practical algorithm for computing the coefficients in the expansion in terms of Schur functions of the plethysm of two Schur functions. By plethysm \(S_{\lambda}[S_{\mu}]\) we mean \(S_{\lambda}(m_ 1,...,m_ n)\) where the \(m_ i\) are monomials with coefficient one and \(S_{\mu}=\sum m_ i\).
