Description : The method of finite differences is one of the most widespread and universal methods of numerical solution of boundary value problems for differential equations, in particular, those of elliptic type. For approximation methods the question of accuracy is significant. The concept of the present project constitutes a coalescence of the following two directions of construction and investigation of finite difference schemes. I Direction. Since for real problems the initial data is not always sufficiently smooth, one has to consider them in the Sobolev spaces. Accordingly, during the last 30 years, in works of A.A. Samarskii, R.D.Lazarov, V.L.Makarov etc., a method for obtaining convergence estimates (in terms of Sobolev spaces) whose convergence rate consistent with the smoothness of the desired solution, is developed. II Direction. In order to be economical in the amount of calculations it is desirable for the difference scheme to be sufficiently good on rough meshes, i.e. to have high order accuracy. Therefore, construction of approximate solutions of high order accuracy represents an urgent problem. In some cases, on a compact stencil, it is possible to construct a high order accuracy difference schemes, but one cannot always construct schemes of such type. Therefore for construction of high order accuracy solution we will use a method of corrections by differences of higher order which was offered empirically by L. Fox. Foundation of this method in the case of Dirichlet problem for Poisson/Laplace equations is given in works of E.A. Volkov. The goal of the Project is to combine the two directions of computational mathematics mentioned above in solving some problems posed for elliptic equations and systems of equations. The essence of the proposed method is the following. Using the solution of a difference scheme it is calculated the corrected right hand side of the difference scheme. By appropriate selection of the corrector the solution of this difference scheme will be of higher order accuracy, while for convergence it will be obtained the estimate consistent to the smoothness of sought solution
