The purpose of this paper is to derive some Lewy-Stampacchia estimates in some cases of interest, such as the ones driven by non-local operators. Since we will perform an abstract approach to the problem, this will provide, as a byproduct, Lewy-Stampacchia estimates in more classical cases as well. In particular, we can recover the known estimates for the standard Laplacian, the p-Laplacian, and the Laplacian in the Heisenberg group. In the non-local framework we prove a Lewy-Stampacchia

As far as we know, the abstract framework and the results in the non-local setting are new. (2010) : Primary 35J86, 35J87, 49J40; Secondary 35R11, 35R35. Mathematics Subject Classification
