Let be a real reflexive Banach space, let be a closed convex subset of , and let be an -accretive operator with a zero. Consider the iterative method that generates the sequence by the algorithm where and are two sequences satisfying certain conditions, denotes the resolvent for , and let be a fixed contractive mapping. The strong convergence of the algorithm is proved assuming that has a weakly continuous duality map.
