Let be a closed convex subset of a complete metrizable topological vector space and a mapping that satisfies for all , where , , , , , and . Then has a unique fixed point. The above theorem, which is a generalization and an extension of the results of several authors, is proved in this paper. In addition, we use the Mann iteration to approximate the fixed point of .
