Abstract: Under suitable assumptions on the order of nonlinearity we prove existence and uniqueness theorems for difference Dirichlet problems of divergence type. We also show that the discrete solutions converge to a solution of the continuous problem. We do not assume that our equation comes from a variational problem. Some of our results are constructive or allow for the application of constructive methods.
