An optimized two-step hybrid block method for the numerical solution of third-order initial value problems is presented. The method takes into regard three hybrid points which are selected suitably to optimize the local truncation errors of the main formulas for the block. The method is zero-stable and consistent with sixth algebraic order. Some numerical examples are debated to demonstrate the efficiency and the accuracy of the proposed method.
