Fixed Point Theory and Applications volume 2011, Article number: 347204 (2011)
Abstract
We introduce an iterative algorithm for finding a common element of the set of fixed points of strict pseudocontractions mapping, the set of common solutions of a system of two mixed equilibrium problems and the set of common solutions of the variational inequalities with inverse strongly monotone mappings. Strong convergence theorems are established in the framework of Hilbert spaces. Finally, we apply our results for solving convex feasibility problems in Hilbert spaces. Our results improve and extend the corresponding results announced by many others recently.
1. Introduction
Throughout this paper, we denote by and the sets of positive integers and real numbers, respectively. Let be a real Hilbert space with inner product and norm , and let be a nonempty closed convex subset of . We denote weak convergence and strong convergence by notations and , respectively. Recall that a mapping is an contraction on if there exists a constant such that for all . Let be a mapping. In the sequel, we will use to denote the set of fixed points of ; that is, . In addition, let a mapping be callednonexpansive, if , for all . It is well known that if is nonempty, bounded, closed, and convex and is a nonexpansive selfmapping on , then is nonempty; see, for example, [1]. Recall that a mapping is called strictly pseudocontraction if there exists a constant such that
where denotes the identity operator on . Note that if , then is a nonexpansive mapping. The class of strict pseudocontractions is one of the most important classes of mappings among nonlinear mappings. Within the past several decades, many authors have been devoted to the studies on the existence and convergence of fixed points for strict pseudocontractions. In 1967, Browder and Petryshyn [2] introduced a convex combination method to study strict pseudocontractions in Hilbert spaces. On the other hand, Marino and Xu [3] and Zhou [4] developed some iterative scheme for finding a fixed point of a strict pseudocontraction mapping. More precisely, take and define a mapping by
where is a strict pseudocontraction. Under appropriate restrictions on , it is proved that the mapping is nonexpansive. Therefore, the techniques of studying nonexpansive mappings can be applied to study more general strict pseudocontractions.
Let be a proper extended realvalued function and let be a bifunction of into such that , where is the set of real numbers and . Ceng and Yao [5] considered the following mixed equilibrium problems for finding such that
The set of solutions of (1.3) is denoted by , that is,

The set of solutions of (1.5) is denoted by .

(2)
If and for all , where is a nonlinear mapping, then problem (1.5) becomes to be the variational inequality problems which is to find such that

The set of solutions of (1.6) is denoted by . The variational inequality has been extensively studied in the literature. See, for example, [6–8] and the references therein.
The mixed equilibrium problems include fixed point problems, variational inequality problems, optimization problems, Nash equilibrium problems, and the equilibrium problem as special cases. Numerous problems in physics, optimization, and economics reduce to find a solution of (1.3). Some authors have proposed some useful methods for solving the and ; see, for instance [5, 9–27]. In 1997, Combettes and Hirstoaga [10] introduced an iterative scheme of finding the best approximation to initial data when is nonempty and proved a strong convergence theorem. Next, we recall some definitions.

A monotone mapping is a maximal if the graph of of is not properly contained in the graph of any other monotone mapping. It is known that a monotone mapping is maximal if and only if for , for every implies .
Let be a monotone map of into , Lipschitz continuous mapping and let be the normal cone to when , that is,

For finding a common element of the set of fixed points of a nonexpansive mapping and the set of solution of variational inequalities for inverse strongly monotone, Takahashi and Toyoda [29] first introduced the following iterative scheme:
where is an inverse strongly monotone, is a sequence in (0, 1), and is a sequence in . They showed that if is nonempty, then the sequence generated by (1.13) converges weakly to some .
Further, Y. Yao and J.C. Yao [30] introduced the following iterative scheme:

A map is said to be strongly positive if there exists a constant such that
A typical problem is to minimize a quadratic function over the set of the fixed points of some nonexpansive mapping on a real Hilbert space :
where is some linear, is the fixed point set of a nonexpansive mapping on and is a point in . Let be a strongly positive linear bounded map on with coefficient . In 2006, Marino and Xu [31] studied the following general iterative method:
They proved that if the sequence of parameters appropriate conditions, then the sequence generated by (1.17) converges strongly to . Recently, Plubtieng and Punpaeng [32] proposed the following iterative algorithm:
They proved that if the sequences and of parameters satisfy appropriate condition, then both sequences and converge to the unique solution of the variational inequality
which is the optimality condition for the minimization problem
where is a potential function for (i.e., for ).
On the other hand, for finding a common element of the set of fixed points of a strict pseudocontraction mapping and the set of solutions of an equilibrium problem in a real Hilbert space, Liu [33] introduced the following iterative scheme:
where is a strict pseudocontraction mapping and , are sequences in [0, 1]. They proved that under certain appropriate conditions over , , and , the sequences and converge strongly to some , which solves some variational inequality problems.
In 2008, Ceng and Yao [5] introduced an iterative scheme for finding a common fixed point of a finite family of nonexpansive mappings and the set of solutions of a problem (1.3) in Hilbert spaces and obtained the strong convergence theorem which used the following condition:

(H)
is strongly convex with constant and its derivative is sequentially continuous from weak topology to strong topology. We note that the condition (H) for the function is a very strong condition. We also note that the condition (H) does not cover the case and for each . Very recently, R. Wangkeeree and R. Wangkeeree [34] introduced a general iterative method for finding a common element of the set of solutions of the mixed equilibrium problems, the set of fixed point of a strict pseudocontraction mapping, and the set of solutions of the variational inequality for an inverse strongly monotone mapping in Hilbert spaces. They obtained a strong convergence theorem except the condition (H) for the sequences generated by these processes.
In 2009, Qin et al. [35] introduced a general iterative scheme for finding a common element of the set of common solution of generalized equilibrium problems, the set of a common fixed point of a family of infinite nonexpansive mappings in Hilbert spaces. Let be the sequence generated iterative by the following algorithm:
They proved that under certain appropriate conditions imposed on , , and , the sequence generated by (1.22) converges strongly to , where .
In the present paper, motivated and inspired by Qin et al. [35], Plubtieng and Punpaeng [32], Peng and Yao [17], R. Wangkeeree and R. Wangkeeree [34], and Y. Yao and J.C. Yao [30], we introduce a new approximation iterative scheme for finding a common element of the set of fixed points of strict pseudocontractions, the set of common solutions of the system of a mixed equilibrium problem, and the set of common solutions of the variational inequalities with inverse strongly monotone mappings in Hilbert spaces. We obtain a strong convergence theorem for the sequences generated by these processes under some parameter controlling conditions. Moreover, we apply our results for solving convex feasibility problems in Hilbert spaces. The results in this paper extend and improve some wellknown results in [17, 30, 32, 34, 35].

Theorem 3.1.
Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of a real Hilbert space . Let and be two bifunctions from to satisfying (A1)–(A5) and let be a proper lower semicontinuous and convex function. Let be an inverse strongly monotone mapping and be an inverse strongly monotone mapping. Let be a contraction mapping with coefficient and let be a strongly positive linear bounded operator on with coefficient and . Let be a strict pseudocontraction with a fixed point. Define a mapping by , for all . Assume that
Assume that either (B1) or (B2). Let be a sequence generated by the following iterative algorithm:

Step 1.
We claim that the mapping where has a unique fixed point.
Since be a contraction of into itself with . Then, we have
Since , it follows that is a contraction of into itself. Therefore the Banach Contraction Mapping Principle implies that there exists a unique element such that .
Step 2.

Step 4.
We claim that .
Observing that and , by the nonexpansiveness of , we get
Similarly, let and , we have
From and , we compute
Similarly, we have
Observing that

Substituting (3.17) and (3.18) into (3.20), we have
where is an appropriate constant such that ,,, ,.
Putting , for all , we have
Then, we compute
It follows from (3.21) and (3.23), that
This together with (C2), (C3), (C4), and (C6) imply that
Hence, by Lemma 2.9, we obtain as . It follows that
So, we also get
Observe that
By condition (C2) and (3.26), we have
Step 5.
We claim that the following statements hold:
(s1);
(s2);
(s3);
(s4).
Indeed, pick any , to obtain
Therefore,
Similarly, we have
Note that
Substituting (3.31) and (3.32) into (3.33), we obtain
From Lemma 2.1, (3.2) and (3.34), we obtain
It follows that
From (C2), (C6), and (3.26), we also have
Similarly, using (3.35) again, we have
From (C2), (C6), and (3.26), we also have
From (3.37) and (3.39), we have
For , we compute
Similarly, we have
Substituting (3.41) and (3.42) into (3.33), we also have
On the other hand, we note that
It follows that
From (C2), (C5), (C6), and (3.26), we have
Thanks to (3.44), we also have
From (C2), (C5), (C6), and (3.26), we obtain
Observe that
and hence
Similarly, we can obtain that
Substituting (3.50) and (3.51) into (3.33), we also have
On the other hand, we have
and hence
From (C2), (C6), (3.26), (3.46), and (3.48), we also have
Similarly, using (3.53) again, we can prove
From (3.39) and (3.55), we also have
From (3.37) and (3.56), we have
Step 6.
We claim that , where is the unique solution of the variational inequality , for all .
To show this inequality, we choose a subsequence of such that
Since is bounded, there exists a subsequence of which converges weakly to . Without loss of generality, we can assume that . We claim that .
(a1) First, we prove that .
Assume also that and .
Define a mapping by
where , , and , for some . From Lemma 2.5, we have that is nonexpansive with
Notice that
where is an appropriate constant such that
From (C6), (3.37), (3.39), and (3.29), we obtain
By Lemma 2.4, we have , that is, .
(a2) Now, we prove that .
Define a mapping by
where , , and , for some . From Lemma 2.5, we have that is nonexpansive with
On the other hand, we have
where is an appropriate constant such that
From (C6) and (3.29), we obtain
Since is a contraction with the coefficient , there exists a unique fixed point. We use to denote the unique fixed point to the mapping , that is, . Since is bounded, There exists a subsequence of which converges weakly to . Without loss of generality, we may assume that . It follows from (3.69), that
It follows from Lemma 2.4, we obtain that . Hence , where . From (3.59) and (2.4), we arrive at
On the other hand, we have
From (3.26) and (3.71), we obtain that
Step 7.
We claim that .
Indeed, by (3.2) and using Lemmas 2.2 and 2.11, we observe that
which implies that
Taking
Then we can rewrite (3.75) as
We have . Applying Lemma 2.10 to (3.77), we conclude that converges strongly to in norm. This completes the proof.
If the mapping is nonexpansive, then . We can obtain the following result from Theorem 3.1 immediately.
Corollary 3.2.
Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of a real Hilbert space . Let and be two bifunction from to satisfying (A1)–(A4) and let be a proper lower semicontinuous and convex function. Let be an inverse strongly monotone mapping and be an inverse strongly monotone mapping. Let be a contraction mapping with coefficient and let be a strongly positive linear bounded operator on with coefficient and . Let a nonexpansive mapping with a fixed point. Assume that
Assume that either or . Let be a sequence generated by the following iterative algorithm:

(C2) and ,
(C3),
(C4),
(C5), , where are two positive constants,
(C6), and , for some .
Then, converges strongly to a point which is the unique solution of the variational inequality
or equivalent , where is a metric projection mapping form onto .
Finally, we consider the following convex feasibility problem :
where is an integer and each is assumed to be the of solutions of equilibrium problem with the bifunction and the solution set of the variational inequality problem. There is a considerable investigation on in the setting of Hilbert spaces which captures applications in various disciplines such as image restoration [42, 43], computer tomography [44], and radiation therapy treatment planning [45].
The following result can be concluded from Theorem 3.1 easily.
