Let be a real Hilbert space with inner product and norm , and let be a nonempty closed convex subset of . Recall that a mapping is said to be nonexpansive if for all . The set of fixed points of is Fix .
The class is fundamental because it contains several types of operators commonly found in various areas of applied mathematics and in particular in approximation and optimization theory (see  for details).
Using Lemma 1.2 given below and the fact that a nonexpansive mapping is quasi-nonexpansive, one can easily obtain hybrid methods introduced by Nakajo and Takahashi  for a nonexpansive mapping.
Inspired by Bauschke and Combettes  and Takahashi et al. , we present a shrinking projection method for the class of mappings. Furthermore, we obtain a shrinking projection method for a nonexpansive mapping on Hilbert spaces, which is the same as presented by Takahashi et al. .
We will use the following notations:
Lemma 1.2 (see ).
Next lemma shows that nonexpansive mappings are demeiclosed at 0.
Lemma 1.5 (Goebel and Kirk ).
Lemma 1.6 (see ).
Lemma 1.7 (Goebel and Kirk ).
Set . By Lemma 1.2 (ii), we have that . From , it follows that which implies that the sequence is coherent. It is obvious that Fix( ) = Fix( ), for all . Hence . Using Theorem 2.1, we get the desired result.
Let in (2.11) for all . Following the proof of Theorem 2.1, we can easily get (2.5) and . By (2.5), we obtain that is bounded and is nonempty. For any , there exists a subsequence of the sequence such that . From , it follows that . Since is demiclosed at 0, we get Fix . Thus Fix which together with Lemma 1.6 and (2.5) implies that .
Since a nonexpansive mapping is quasi-nonexpansive, using Lemma 1.5 and Theorem 3.2, we have following corollary.
Corollary 3.3 is a special case of Theorem 4.1 in  when .
