Abstract: In this paper, we first extend the well-known method of super- and sub-solutions for elliptic boundary value problems to $ {L^\infty }$-boundary functions. Then we apply this method to investigate the solvability and the boundary behavior of solutions to some nonlinear elliptic equations, some Fatou-type results are obtained.
