We consider systems described by boundary-value problems for elliptic second-order partial differential equations with discontinuous coefficients appearing in the study of steady-state processes of filtration of a liquid in multicomponent media under nonhomogeneous conditions of a nonideal contact. Minimax estimates for functionals of solutions of these equations are found by using observations of states of the system. We assume that the right hand sides of equations, boundary conditions, and junction conditions on borders of media as well as errors in measurements are not known precisely, but we know only the sets to which they belong. We prove that the finding of minimax estimates can be reduced to the solving of some systems of integro-differential equations.
