The paper describes results obtained in a few recent publications of the author. These results are connected with the concept of discrete regularity usually used for finite difference methods. The author shows that this notion can be an essential tool in investigating some problems of the finite element methods as well. Problems of super-convergence and numerical integration in finite element methods are discussed as examples. Theorems on convergence for some nonlinear problems are formulated.
