Abstract: This paper is the last in a series of three which analyze an adaptive approximate approach for solving $ (n + 1)$-dimensional boundary value problems by replacing them with systems of equations in n-dimensional space.

In this paper we show how to find reliable a posteriori estimates for the error and how these can also be used in the design of an adaptive strategy. Various numerical examples are contained in the paper.
