Is Harry Potter's wand the Elder wand?
Harry Potter became the rightful master of the Elder Wand. The Wand belongs to the person who defeats its current owner. On the Astronomy Tower right before Dumbledore was killed, Malfoy disarmed him therefore becoming the rightful master. Later on, in a scuffle in Malfoy Manor, Harry obtained Malfoy's wand and became the owner of the Elder Wand without knowing.
Voldemort broke into Dumbledore's grave and stole the wand and tried to kill Harry with it, but because Harry was the wand's true master, the spell backfired and killed Voldemort.
Harry eventually decided the wand was too powerful and destroyed it, after using it just once to mend his own wand.
Throughout the battle, Harry was using Draco Malfoy's wand, which he had previously stolen. Stealing the wand from Draco made Harry the owner of the Elder wand which Voldemort was using. After Voldemort's death, Harry used the Elder wand to fix his own holly and phoenix feather, then returned the Elder wand to Dumbledore's grave.
Harry became owner of the Elder wand because Draco disarmed Dumbledore who was the owner at the time, but when he was confronted and disarmed, Draco became the new owner. And when Harry, Ron and Hermione were escaping from being tortured, Harry disarmed Draco and he became the owner until the end when he destroyed it.
Dumbledore was the master of Elder Wand until he was disarmed by Draco Malfoy at the Astronomy Tower. Malfoy himself did not know that he was the true master of Elder Wand. In part 7 when Harry, Hermoine and Ron were captured by snatchers and brought to Malfoy Tower Harry Potter disarmed Draco and becoming the master of Elder Wand. So, Harry Potter remained the true master of Elder Wand in the end.

The relevance of the "Elder Wand" in Harry Potter is mainly that it is a very powerful wand.

In the case of the Elder Wand, the details of the ownership changes are somewhat complicated.
