  • A pointwise gradient bound for weak solutions to Dirichlet problem for quasilinear elliptic equations $ -\mathrm{div}(\mathbb{A}(x,\nabla u)) = \mu $ is established via Wolff type potentials. It is worthwhile to note that the model case of $ \mathbb{A} $ here is the non-degenerate $ p $-Laplacian operator. The central objective is to extend the pointwise regularity results in [Q.-H. Nguyen, N. C. Phuc, Pointwise gradient estimates for a class of singular quasilinear equations with measure data, J. Funct. Anal. 278(5) (2020), 108391] to the very singular case $ 1<p \le \frac{3n-2}{2n-1} $, where the data $ \mu $ on right-hand side is assumed belonging to some classes that close to $ L^1 $. Moreover, a global pointwise estimate for gradient of weak solutions to such problem is also obtained under the additional assumption that $ \Omega $ is sufficiently flat in the Reifenberg sense.
