Let be an open subset of a real uniformly smooth Banach space . Suppose is a demicontinuous pseudocontractive mapping satisfying an appropriate condition, where denotes the closure of . Then, it is proved that (i) for every ; (ii) for a given , there exists a unique path , , satisfying . Moreover, if or there exists such that the set is bounded, then it is proved that, as , the path converges strongly to a fixed point of . Furthermore, explicit iteration procedures with bounded error terms are proved to converge strongly to a fixed point of .
