## Abstract

Some variable Krasnonsel'skiĭ-Mann iteration algorithms generate some sequences , , and , respectively, via the formula , , , where and the mod function takes values in , , , and are sequences in and are sequences of nonexpansive mappings. We will show, in a fairly general Banach space, that the sequence , , generated by the above formulas converge weakly to the common fixed point of , respectively. These results are used to solve the multiple-set split feasibility problem recently introduced by Censor et al. (2005). The purpose of this paper is to introduce convergence theorems of some variable Krasnonsel'skiĭ-Mann iteration algorithms in Banach space and their applications which solve the multiple-set split feasibility problem.

## 1. Introduction

(See [4, 5] for details on the fixed point theory for nonexpansive mappings.)

where and are the (orthogonal) projections onto and , respectively, is any positive constant and denotes the adjoint of . Moreover, for sufficiently small , the operator which defines the fixed point equation (1.6) is nonexpansive.

where is a sequence of nonexpansive mappings in a Hilbert space , under certain conditions, they proved convergence of (1.9) essentially in a finite-dimensional Hilbert space. Furthermore, with regard to (1.9), Xu [13] extended the results of Zhao and Yang [10] in the framework of fairly general Banach space.

where and are positive integers, and are closed and convex subsets of and , respectively, and is a linear bounded operator from to .

where , , , and are sequences in , and are sequences of nonexpansive mappings. We will show, in a fairly general Banach space , that the sequences , , and generated by (1.13), (1.14), and (1.15) converge weakly to the common fixed point of , respectively. The applications of these results are used to solve the multiple-set split feasibility problem recently introduced by [15].

This paper is organized as follows. In the next section, we will prove a weak convergence theorems for the three variable K-M algorithms (1.13), (1.14), and (1.15) in a uniformly convex Banach space with a Frechet differentiable norm (the class of such Banach spaces include Hilbert space and and space for ). In the last section, we will present the applications of the weak convergence theorems for the three variable K-M algorithms (1.13), (1.14), and (1.15).

## 2. Convergence of Variable Krasnonsel'ski -Mann Iteration Algorithm

To solve the multiple-set split feasibility problem (MSSFP) in Section 3, we firstly present some theorems of the general variable Krasnonsel'ski -Mann iteration algorithms.

Theorem 2.1.

Let be a uniformly convex Banach space with a Frechet differentiable norm, let be a nonempty closed and convex subset of , and let be nonexpansive mapping, . Assume that the set of common fixed point of , , is nonempty. Let be any sequence generated by (1.13), where satisfy the conditions

Then converges weakly to a common fixed point of .

Proof.

Since is nonexpansive mapping, for , then, the composition is nonexpansive mapping from to . Let .

Thus, is a decreasing sequence, and we have that exists. Hence, is bounded, so are , , and . Let and let .

where denotes the weak -limit set of .

To prove that is weakly convergent to a common fixed point of , it now suffices to prove that consists of exactly one point.

This is a contradiction.

The proof is completed.

Theorem 2.2.

Let be a uniformly convex Banach space with a Frechet differentiable norm, let be a nonempty closed and convex subset of , and let be nonexpansive mapping, , assume that the set of common fixed point of , , is nonempty. Let be defined by (1.14), where satisfy the following conditions

Then converges weakly to a common fixed point of .

Proof.

Since is a nonexpansive mapping, , then, it is not hard to see that is a nonexpansive mapping from to .

The remainder of the proof is the same as Theorem 2.1.

The proof is completed.

Theorem 2.3.

Let be a uniformly convex Banach space with a Frechet differentiable norm, let be a nonempty closed convex subset of , and let be nonexpansive mapping, , assume that the set of common fixed point of , , is nonempty. Let be defined by (1.15), where satisfy the conditions

Then converges weakly to a common fixed point of .

Proof.

Since and is a sequence of nonexpansive mappings from to , so, the proof of this theorem is similar to Theorems 2.1 and 2.2.

The proof is completed.

## 3. Applications for Solving the Multiple-Set Split Feasibility Problem (MSSFP)

A projection of onto a closed convex subset is both nonexpansive and 1-ism. It is also known that a mapping is averaged if and only if the complement is -ism for some ; see [8] for more property of averaged mappings and -ism.

To solve the MSSFP (1.10), Censor et al. [15] proposed the following projection algorithm (1.11), the algorithm (1.11) involves an additional projection . Though the MSSFP, (1.10) includes the SFP (1.5) as a special case, which does not reduced to (1.7), let alone (1.8). In this section, we will propose some new projection algorithms which solve the MSSFP (1.10) and which are the application of algorithms (1.13), (1.14), and (1.15) for solving the MSSFP. These projection algorithms can also reduce to the algorithm (1.8) when the MSSFP (1.10) is reduced to the SFP (1.5).

Theorem 3.1.

Assume that the MSSFP (1.10) is consistent. Let be the sequence generated by the algorithm (3.2), where with and satisfy the condition: . Then converges weakly to a solution of the MSSFP (1.10).

Proof.

and is nonexpansive, it is easy to see that is -Lipschitzian, with .

Therefore, is -ism [18]. This implies that for any , is averaged. Hence, for any closed and convex subset of , the composite is averaged.

So is averaged, thus is nonexpansive.

By the position 2.2 [8], we see that the fixed point set of , , is the common fixed point set of the averaged mappings .

By Reich [3], we have converges weakly to a fixed point of which is also a common fixed point of or a solution of the MSSFP (1.10).

The proof is completed.

Theorem 3.2.

Assume that the MSSFP (1.10) is consistent. Let be any sequence generated by the algorithm (3.5), where with and satisfy the condition: . Then converges weakly to a solution of the MSSFP (1.10).

Proof.

From the proof of Theorem 3.1, it is easy to know that is averaged, so, the convex combination is also averaged.

By Reich [3], we have converges weakly to a fixed point of .

Next, we only need to prove the fixed point of is also the common fixed point of which is the solution of the MSSFP (1.10), that is, .

Indeed, it suffices to show that .

Pick an arbitrary , thus . Also pick a , thus , .

Write , with and is nonexpansive.

We claim that if is such that , then , .

This is a contradiction. Therefore, we must have , , that is, .

This proof is completed.

Theorem 3.3.

Assume that the MSSFP (1.10) is consistent. Let be the sequence generated by the algorithm (3.9), where with and satisfy the following conditions:

Then converges weakly to a solution of the MSSFP (1.10).

Proof.

From the proof of application (3.2), it is easy to verify that is averaged, so, is also averaged.

Now we cam apply Theorem 2.3 to conclude that the sequence given by the projection Algorithm (3.9) converges weakly to a solution of the MSSFP (1.10).

The proof is completed.

Remark 3.4.

The algorithms (3.12), (3.13), and (3.15) of Xu [13] are some projection algorithms for solving the MSSEP (1.10), which are concrete projection algorithms. In this paper, firstly, we present some general variable K-M algorithms (1.13), (1.14), and (1.15), and prove the weak convergence for them in Section 2. Secondly, through the applications of the weak convergence for three general variable K-M algorithms (1.13), (1.14), and (1.15), we solve the MSSEP (1.10) by the algorithms (3.2), (3.5), and (3.9).
