Abstract: Logarithmic convexity type continuous dependence results for discrete harmonic functions defined as solutions of the standard $ {C^0}$ piecewise-linear approximation to Laplace's equation are proved. Using this result, error estimates for a regularization method for approximating the Cauchy problem for Poisson's equation on a rectangle are obtained. Numerical results are presented.
