## Abstract

Motivated by the method of Xu (2006) and Matsushita and Takahashi (2008), we characterize the set of all common fixed points of a family of nonexpansive mappings by the notion of Mosco convergence and prove strong convergence theorems for nonexpansive mappings and semigroups in a uniformly convex Banach space.

## 1. Introduction

Let be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of a Banach space and a nonexpansive mapping; that is, satisfies for any , and consider approximating a fixed point of . This problem has been investigated by many researchers and various types of strong convergent algorithm have been established. For implicit algorithms, see Browder [1], Reich [2], Takahashi and Ueda [3], and others. For explicit iterative schemes, see Halpern [4], Wittmann [5], Shioji and Takahashi [6], and others. Nakajo and Takahashi [7] introduced a hybrid type iterative scheme by using the metric projection, and recently Takahashi et al. [8] established a modified type of this projection method, also known as the shrinking projection method.

Let us focus on the following methods generating an approximating sequence to a fixed point of a nonexpansive mapping.Let be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of a uniformly convex and smooth Banach space and let be a nonexpansive mapping of into itself. Xu [9] considered a sequence generated by

for each , where is the closure of the convex hull of , is the generalized projection onto , and is a sequence in with as . Then, he proved that converges strongly to . Matsushita and Takahashi [10] considered a sequence generated by

for each , where is the metric projection onto and is a sequence in with as . They proved that converges strongly to .

In this paper, motivated by these results, we characterize the set of all common fixed points of a family of nonexpansive mappings by the notion of Mosco convergence and prove strong convergence theorems for nonexpansive mappings and semigroups in a uniformly convex Banach space.

## 2. Preliminaries

Throughout this paper, we denote by a real Banach space with norm . We write to indicate that a sequence converges weakly to . Similarly, will symbolize strong convergence. Let be the family of all strictly increasing continuous convex functions satisfying that . We have the following theorem [11, Theorem ] for a uniformly convex Banach space.

Theorem 2.1 (Xu [11]).

is a uniformly convex Banach space if and only if, for every bounded subset of , there exists such that

for all and .

Bruck [12] proved the following result for nonexpansive mappings.

Theorem 2.2 (Bruck [12]).

Let be a bounded closed convex subset of a uniformly convex Banach space . Then, there exists such that

for all , , with and nonexpansive mapping of into .

Let be a sequence of nonempty closed convex subsets of a reflexive Banach space . We denote the set of all strong limit points of by , that is, if and only if there exists such that converges strongly to and that for all . Similarly the set of all weak subsequential limit points by ; if and only if there exist a subsequence of and a sequence such that converges weakly to and that for all . If satisfies that , then we say that converges to in the sense of Mosco and we write . By definition, it always holds that . Therefore, to prove , it suffices to show that

One of the simplest examples of Mosco convergence is a decreasing sequence with respect to inclusion. The Mosco limit of such a sequence is . For more details, see [13].

Suppose that is smooth, strictly convex, and reflexive. The normalized duality mapping of is denoted by , that is,

for . In this setting, we may show that is a single-valued one-to-one mapping onto . For more details, see [14–16].

Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of a strictly convex and reflexive Banach space . Then, for an arbitrarily fixed , a function has a unique minimizer . Using such a point, we define the metric projection by for every . The metric projection has the following important property: if and only if and for all .

In the same manner, we define the generalized projection [17] for a nonempty closed convex subset of a strictly convex, smooth, and reflexive Banach space as follows. For a fixed , a function has a unique minimizer and we define by this point. We know that the following characterization holds for the generalized projection [17, 18]: if and only if and for all .

Tsukada [19] proved the following theorem for a sequence of metric projections in a Banach space.

Theorem 2.3 (Tsukada [19]).

Let be a reflexive and strictly convex Banach space and let be a sequence of nonempty closed convex subsets of . If exists and nonempty, then, for each , converges weakly to , where is the metric projection onto a nonempty closed convex subset of . Moreover, if has the Kadec-Klee property, the convergence is in the strong topology.

On the other hand, Ibaraki et al. [20] proved the following theorem for a sequence of generalized projections in a Banach space.

Theorem 2.4 (Ibaraki et al. [20]).

Let be a strictly convex, smooth, and reflexive Banach space and let be a sequence of nonempty closed convex subsets of . If exists and nonempty, then, for each , converges weakly to , where is the generalized projection onto a nonempty closed convex subset of . Moreover, if has the Kadec-Klee property, the convergence is in the strong topology.

Kimura [21] obtained the further generalization of this theorem by using the Bregman projection; see also [22].

Theorem 2.5 (Kimura [21]).

Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of a reflexive Banach space and let be a Bregman function on ; that is, (i) is lower semicontinuous and strictly convex; (ii) is contained by the interior of the domain of ; (iii) is Gâteaux differentiable on ; (iv) the subsets and of are both bounded for all and , where for all and . Let be a sequence of nonempty closed convex subsets of such that exists and is nonempty. Suppose that is sequentially consistent; that is, for any bounded sequence of and of the domain of , implies . Then, the sequence of Bregman projections converges strongly to for all .

We note that the generalized duality mapping coincides with if the function is defined by for . In this case, the Bregman projection with respect to becomes the generalized projection for any nonempty closed convex subset of .

## 4. The Sequences of Mappings Satisfying Conditions (I) and (II)

First let us show some known results which play important roles for our results.

## 5. Strong Convergence Theorems

Throughout this section, we assume that is a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of a uniformly convex Banach space and is a family of nonexpansive mappings of into itself with . Then, we know that is closed and convex.

We get the following results for the metric projection by using Theorems 2.3, 3.1, and 3.2.

Theorem 5.1.

Let and let be a sequence generated by

for each , where such that as , and is the metric projection onto . If satisfies condition (I), then converges strongly to .

Theorem 5.2.

Let and let be a sequence generated by

On the other hand, we have the following results for the Bregman projection by using Theorems 2.5, 3.1, and 3.2.

Theorem 5.3.

## 6. Generalization of Xu's and Matsushita-Takahashi's Theorems

At the end of this paper, we remark the relationship between these results and the convergence theorems by Xu [9] and Matsushita and Takahashi [10] mentioned in the introduction.

Let us suppose the all assumptions in their results, respectively. Let be a countable family of nonexpansive mappings of into itself such that and suppose that it satisfies condition (I). Let us define for . Then, by definition, we have that for every . On the other hand, we have

for every from basic properties of and . Therefore, for each theorem we have

for every by using mathematical induction. Since is bounded, a sequence converges to for any in whenever converges to . Thus, using Theorem 3.1 we obtain

Theorem 6.1.

Let be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of a uniformly convex and smooth Banach space and a sequence of nonexpansive mappings of into itself such that and suppose that it satisfies condition (I). Let be a sequence generated by
