The verifications of solutions to weakly nonlinear elliptic equations by the method described e.g. by Nakao (1988, 1989), etc. are sometimes hardly accomplished when the right-hand sides of the equations are very large. To overcome such difficulties, a residual iteration technique with approximate solution was introduced by Nakao (1993). In the present paper, we propose an a posteriori method for the residual iteration, and show that a remarkable improvement in efficiency and in accuracy of the verification can be obtained when we use a higher order finite element.
