Differential inclusions provide a suitable framework for modelling choice and uncertainty. In finite dimensions, the theory of ordinary differential inclusions and their numerical approximations is well-developed, whereas little is known for partial differential inclusions, which are the deterministic counterparts of stochastic partial differential equations. The aim of this article is to analyze strategies for the numerical approximation of the solution set of a linear elliptic partial differential inclusion. The geometry of its solution set is studied, numerical methods are proposed, and error estimates are provided.
