In many cases, the numerical simulation of complicated physical phenomena consists of various modelling and discretization steps. This includes data simplification (replacing complicated coefficients by simpler ones, using dimension-reduced models, applying homogenization models) and the numerical discretization. In many cases the final approximation is constructed by combining solutions of simpler problems in a sophisticated way via a postprocessing step. The a priori and a posteriori analysis for such types of problems typically require regularity of the simplified problems. In particular, for the a posteriori error analysis the (estimated) value of the regularity constant (of the simplified problem) with respect to a W^(1,p) norm for some p>2 is required. In our talk, we will present model problems where the a posteriori analysis leads to such regularity problems and explain theoretical tools for their estimation.
