Numerical method for solving one-, two- and three-dimensional Dirichlet problems for the nonlinear elliptic equations has been designed. The method is based on the application of Chebyshev approximations without saturation and on a new way of forming and solving the systems of linear equations after discretization of the original differential problem. Wherein the differential operators are approximated by means of matrices and the equation itself is approximated by the Sylvester equation (2D case) or by its tensor generalization (3D case). While solving test problems with the solutions of different regularity we have shown a rigid correspondence between the rate of convergence of the proposed method and the order of smoothness (or regularity) of the sought-for function. The observed rates of convergence strictly correspond to the error estimates of the best polynomial approximations and show the absence of saturation of the designed algorithm. This results in the essential reduction of memory costs and number of operations for cases of the problems with solutions of a high order of smoothness.
