Using -strongly accretive and -strictly pseudocontractive mapping, we introduce a general iterative method for finding a common fixed point of a semigroup of non-expansive mappings in a Hilbert space, with respect to a sequence of left regular means defined on an appropriate space of bounded real-valued functions of the semigroup. We prove the strong convergence of the proposed iterative algorithm to the unique solution of a variational inequality.

Using the Hahn-Banach theorem, it is immediately clear that for each . The multivalued mapping from into is said to be the (normalized) duality mapping. A Banach space is said to be smooth if the duality mapping is single valued. As it is well known, the duality mapping is the identity when is a Hilbert space; see .
Various applications to the additive semigroup of nonnegative real numbers and commuting pairs of non-expansive mappings are also presented. It is worth mentioning that we obtain our result without assuming condition .
