## Abstract

Weak and strong convergence theorems of three-step iterations are established for nonself asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in uniformly convex Banach space. The results obtained in this paper extend and improve the recent ones announced by Suantai (2005), Khan and Hussain (2008), Nilsrakoo and Saejung (2006), and many others.

## 1. Introduction

Suppose that is a real uniformly convex Banach space, is a nonempty closed convex subset of . Let be a self-mapping of .

The class of asymptotically nonexpansive maps which is an important generalization of the class nonexpansive maps was introduced by Goebel and Kirk [1]. They proved that every asymptotically nonexpansive self-mapping of a nonempty closed convex bounded subset of a uniformly convex Banach space has a fixed point.

*uniformly*

*-Lipschitzian*if there exists a constant such that , the following inequality holds:

where , , , , , , , and in satisfy certain conditions.

where , , , , , and in satisfy certain conditions.

Let
be a real normed space and
be a nonempty subset of
. A subset
of
is called a *retract* of
if there exists a continuous map
such that
for all
. Every closed convex subset of a uniformly convex Banach space is a rectract. A map
is called a retraction if
. In particular, a subset
is called a *nonexpansive retract* of
if there exists a *nonexpansive retraction*
such that
for all
.

for all , and . From the above definition, it is obvious that nonself asymptotically nonexpansive mappings are uniformly -Lipschitzian.

Now, we give the following nonself-version of (1.4):

, where , , , , , , , and in satisfy certain conditions.

The aim of this paper is to prove the weak and strong convergence of the three-step iterative sequence for nonself asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in a real uniformly convex Banach space. The results presented in this paper improve and generalize some recent papers by Suantai [7], Khan and Hussain [10], Nilsrakoo and Saejung [6], and many others.

## 3. Main Results

In this section, we prove theorems of weak and strong of the three-step iterative scheme given in (1.12) to a fixed point for nonself asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in a uniformly convex Banach space. In order to prove our main results the followings lemmas are needed.

Lemma 3.1.

If and are sequences in such that and is sequence of real numbers with for all and , then there exists a positive integer and such that for all .

Proof.

from which we have . Put , then we have for all .

Lemma 3.2.

Let be a real Banach space and a nonempty closed and convex subset of . Let be a nonself asymptotically nonexpansive mapping with the nonempty fixed-point set and a sequence of real numbers such that and . Let , , , , , and be real sequences in , such that and in for all . Let be a sequence in defined by (1.12), then we have, for any , exists.

Proof.

Since and from Lemma 2.3, it follows that exits.

Lemma 3.3.

Let be a real uniformly convex Banach space and a nonempty closed and convex subset of . Let be a nonself asymptotically nonexpansive mapping with the nonempty fixed-point set and a sequence of real numbers such that and . Let , , , , , and be real sequences in , such that and in for all . Let be a sequence in defined by (1.12), then one has the following conclusions.

If the following conditions

either and or and are satisfied, then

Proof.

Therefore, the assumption implies that .

This completes the proof.

Lemma 3.4.

Let be a real uniformly convex Banach space and a nonempty closed convex subset of . Let be a nonself asymptotically nonexpansive mapping with the nonempty fixed-point set and a sequence of real numbers such that and . Let , , , , , and be real sequences in , such that and in for all . Let be a sequence in defined by (1.12) with the following restrictions:

Proof.

In the next result, we prove our first strong convergence theorem as follows.

Theorem 3.5.

Let be a real uniformly convex Banach space and a nonempty closed convex subset of . Let be a nonself asymptotically nonexpansive mapping with the nonempty fixed-point set and a sequence of real numbers such that and . Let , , , , , and be real sequences in , such that and in for all . Let be a sequence in defined by (1.12) with the following restrictions:

If, in addition, is either completely continuous or demicompact, then converges strongly to a fixed point of .

Proof.

It folows that . Moreover, since exists, then , that is, converges strongly to a fixed point of .

We assume that is demicompact. Then, using the same ideas and argument, we also prove that converges strongly to a fixed point of .

Finally, we prove the weak convergence of the iterative scheme (1.12) for nonself asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in a uniformly convex Banach space satisfying Opial's condition.

Theorem 3.6.

Let be a real uniformly convex Banach space satisfying Opial's condition and a nonempty closed convex subset of . Let be a nonself asymptotically nonexpansive mapping with the nonempty fixed-point set and a sequence of real numbers such that and . Let , , , , , and be real sequences in , such that and in for all . Let be a sequence in defined by (1.12) with the following restrictions:

then converges weakly to a fixed point of .

Proof.

Let . Then as in Lemma 3.2, exists. We prove that has a unique weak subsequential limit in . We assume that and are weak limits of the subsequences , , or , respectively. By Lemma 3.4, and is demiclosed by Lemma 2.1, and in the same way, . Therefore, we have . It follows from Lemma 2.5 that . Thus, converges weakly to an element of This completes the proof.
