## Abstract

In this article, we introduce a new mapping generated by an infinite family of *κ*_{
i
}*-* strict pseudo-contractions and a sequence of positive real numbers. By using this mapping, we consider an iterative method for finding a common element of the set of a generalized equilibrium problem of the set of solution to a system of variational inequalities, and of the set of fixed points of an infinite family of strict pseudo-contractions. Strong convergence theorem of the purposed iteration is established in the framework of Hilbert spaces.

*C*be a closed convex subset of a real Hilbert space

*H*, and let

*G*:

*C*×

*C*→ ℝ be a bifunction. We know that the equilibrium problem for a bifunction

*G*is to find

*x*∈

*C*such that

*EP*(

*G*). Given a mapping

*T*:

*C*→

*H*, let

*G*(

*x*,

*y*) = 〈

*Tx*,

*y*-

*x*〉 for all

*x*,

*y*∈. Then,

*z*∈

*EP*(

*G*) if and only if 〈

*Tz*,

*y*-

*z*〉 ≥ 0 for all

*y*∈

*C*, i.e.,

*z*is a solution of the variational inequality. Let

*A*:

*C*→

*H*be a nonlinear mapping. The variational inequality problem is to find a

*u*∈

*C*such that

*v*∈

*C*. The set of solutions of the variational inequality is denoted by

*V I*(

*C*,

*A*). Now, we consider the following generalized equilibrium problem:

In the case of *A* ≡ 0, *EP*(*G*, *A*) is denoted by *EP*(*G*). In the case of *G* ≡ 0, *EP*(*G*, *A*) is also denoted by *V I*(*C*, *A*). Numerous problems in physics, optimization, variational inequalities, minimax problems, the Nash equilibrium problem in noncooperative games, and economics reduce to find a solution of (1.3) (see, for instance, [1]-[3]).

*A*of

*C*into

*H*is called

*inverse-strongly monotone*(see [4]), if there exists a positive real number

*α*such that

for all *x*, *y* ∈ *C*.

*x*,

*y*∈

*D*(

*T*) and

*T*is said to be

*κ*-

*strict pseudo-contration*if there exist

*κ*∈ [0, 1) such that

*κ*-strict pseudo-contractions includes class of nonexpansive mappings. If

*κ*= 1, then

*T*is said to be

*pseudo-contractive*.

*T*is

*strong pseudo-contraction*if there exists a positive constant

*λ*∈ (0, 1) such that

*T*+

*λI*is pseudo-contractive. In a real Hilbert space

*H*(1.5) is equivalent to

The class of *κ*-strict pseudo-contractions fall into the one between classes of nonexpansive mappings and pseudo-contractions, and the class of strong pseudo-contractions is independent of the class of *κ*-strict pseudo-contractions.

*F*(

*T*) the set of fixed points of

*T*. If

*C*⊂

*H*is bounded, closed and convex and

*T*is a nonexpansive mapping of C into itself, then

*F*(

*T*) is nonempty; for instance, see [5]. Recently, Tada and Takahashi [6] and Takahashi and Takahashi [7] considered iterative methods for finding an element of

*EP*(

*G*) ∩

*F*(

*T*). Browder and Petryshyn [8] showed that if a

*κ*-strict pseudo-contraction T has a fixed point in C, then starting with an initial

*x*

_{0}∈

*C*, the sequence {

*x*

_{ n }} generated by the recursive formula:

*α*is a constant such that 0

*< α <*1, converges weakly to a fixed point of

*T*. Marino and Xu [9] extended Browder and Petryshyn's above mentioned result by proving that the sequence {

*x*

_{ n }} generated by the following Manns algorithm [10]:

converges weakly to a fixed point of *T* provided the control sequence
satisfies the conditions that *κ < α*_{
n
} *<* 1 for all *n* and
.

*EP*(

*F*,

*T*),

*F*(

*S*), and

*F*(

*D*). They defined {

*x*

_{ n }} as follows:

where the mapping *D* : *C* → *C* is defined by *D*(*x*) = *P*_{
C
}(*P*_{
C
}(*x* - *ηBx*) - *λAP*_{
C
}(*x* - *ηBx*)), *S*_{
k
} is the mapping defined by *S*_{
k
}*x* = *kx* + (1 - *k*)*Sx*, ∀*x* ∈ *C*, *S* : *C* → *C* is a *κ*-strict pseudo-contraction, and *A*, *B* : *C* ∈ *H* are a-inverse-strongly monotone mapping and b-inverse-strongly monotone mappings, respectively. Under suitable conditions, they proved strong convergence of {*x*_{
n
}} defined by (1.9) to *z* = *P*_{EP(F, T)∩F(S) ∩F(D)}*u*.

*C*be a nonempty convex subset of a real Hilbert space. Let

*T*

_{ i },

*i*= 1, 2, ... be mappings of

*C*into itself. For each

*j*= 1, 2, ..., let where

*I*= [0, 1] and . For every

*n*∈ ℕ, we define the mapping

*S*

_{ n }:

*C*→

*C*as follows:

This mapping is called *S-mapping* generated by *T*_{
n
}, ..., *T*_{1} and *α*_{

}, *α*_{n-1}, ..., *α*_{1}.

**Question**. How can we define an iterative method for finding an element in
?

In this article, motivated by Qin et al. [11], by using *S*-mapping, we introduce a new iteration method for finding a common element of the set of a generalized equilibrium problem of the set of solution to a system of variational inequalities, and of the set of fixed points of an infinite family of strict pseudo-contractions. Our iteration scheme is define as follows.

For *i* = 1, 2, ..., *N*, let *F*_{
i
} : *C* × *C* → ℝ be bifunction, *A*_{
i
} : *C* → *H* be *α*_{
i
}-inverse strongly monotone and let *G*_{
i
} : *C* → *C* be defined by *G*_{
i
}(*y*) = *P*_{
C
}(*I* - *λ*_{
i
}*A*_{
i
})*y*, ∀*y* ∈ *C* with (0, 1] ⊂ (0, 2 *α*_{
i
} ) such that
, where *B* is the *K*-mapping generated by *G*_{1}, *G*_{2}, ..., *G*_{
N
} and *β*_{1}, *β*_{2}, ..., *β*_{
N
} .

## 2 Preliminaries

In this section, we collect and provide some useful lemmas that will be used for our main result in the next section.

*C*be a closed convex subset of a real Hilbert space

*H*, and let

*P*

_{ C }be the metric projection of

*H*onto

*C*i.e., so that for

*x*∈

*H*,

*P*

_{ C }

*x*satisfies the property:

The following characterizes the projection *P*_{
C
}.

*Then* lim_{n→∞}*s*_{
n
} = 0.

**Lemma 2.3**[13].

*Let C be a closed convex subset of a strictly convex Banach space E. Let*{

*T*

_{ n }:

*n*∈ ℕ}

*be a sequence of nonexpansive mappings on C. Suppose*

*is nonempty. Let*{

*λ*

_{ n }}

*be a sequence of positive numbers with*.

*Then, a mapping S on C defined by*

*for x* ∈ *C is well defined, nonexpansive and*
*hold*.

**Lemma 2.4** [14]. *Let E be a uniformly convex Banach space, C be a nonempty closed convex subset of E and S* : *C* → *C be a nonexpansive mapping. Then, I* - *S is demi-closed at zero*.

**Lemma 2.5** [15]. *Let* {*x*_{
n
}} *and* {*z*_{
n
}} *be bounded sequences in a Banach space X and let* {*β*_{
n
}} *be a sequence in 0*[1] *with* 0 *<* lim inf_{n→∞}*β*_{
n
} ≤ lim sup_{n→∞}*β*_{
n
} *<* 1.

*Then* lim_{n→∞}||*x*_{
n
} - *z*_{
n
}|| = 0.

For solving the equilibrium problem for a bifunction *F* : *C* × *C* → ℝ, let us assume that *F* satisfies the following conditions:

(*A* 1) *F*(*x*, *x*) = 0 ∀*x* ∈ *C*;

(*A* 2) *F* is monotone, i.e. *F*(*x*, *y*) + *F*(*y*, *x*) ≤ 0, ∀*x*, *y* ∈ *C*;

(*A* 4) ∀*x* ∈ *C*, *y* ↦ *F*(*x*, *y*) is convex and lower semicontinuous.

The following lemma appears implicitly in [1].

**Lemma 2.6**[1].

*Let C be a nonempty closed convex subset of H, and let F be a bifunction of C*×

*C into*ℝ

*satisfying*(

*A*1) - (

*A*4).

*Let r >*0

*and x*∈

*H. Then, there exists z*∈

*C such that*

*for all x* ∈ *C*.

**Lemma 2.7**[16].

*Assume that F*:

*C*×

*C*→ ℝ

*satisfies*(

*A*1) - (

*A*4).

*For r >*0

*and x*∈

*H, define a mapping T*

_{ r }:

*H*→

*C as follows*.

*for all z* ∈ *H. Then, the following hold*.

*(1) T*_{
r
} *is single-valued*,

*(3) F*(*T*_{
r
}) = *EP* (*F* );

*(4) EP*(*F*) *is closed and convex*.

**Definition 2.1**[17].

*Let C be a nonempty convex subset of real Banach space. Let*

*be a finite family of nonexpanxive mappings of C into itself, and let λ*

_{1}, ...,

*λ*

_{ N }

*be real numbers such that*0 ≤

*λ*

_{ i }≤ 1

*for every i*= 1, ...,

*N . We define a mapping K*:

*C*→

*C as follows*.

Such a mapping *K* is called the *K-mapping* generated by *T*_{1}, ..., *T*_{
N
} and *λ*_{1}, ..., *λ*_{
N
} .

**Lemma 2.8** [17]. *Let C be a nonempty closed convex subset of a strictly convex Banach space. Let*
*be a finite family of nonexpanxive mappings of C into itself with*
*and let λ*_{1}, ..., *λ*_{
N
} *be real numbers such that* 0 *< λ*_{
i
} *<* 1 *for every i* = 1, ..., *N* - 1 *and* 0 *< λ*_{
N
} ≤ 1. *Let K be the K-mapping generated by T*_{1}, ..., *T*_{
N
} *and λ*_{1}, ..., *λ*_{
N
} *. Then*
.

**Lemma 2.9**[9].

*Let C be a nonempty closed convex subset of a real Hilbert space H and S*:

*C*→

*C be a self-mapping of C. If S is a κ-strict pseudo-contraction mapping, then S satisfies the Lipschitz condition*.

**Lemma 2.10**. *Let C be a nonempty closed convex subset of a real Hilbert space. Let*
*be κ*_{
i
}*-strict pseudo-contraction mappings of C into itself with*
*and κ* = sup_{
i
} *κ*_{
i
} *and let*
, *where I* = [0, 1],
,
, *and*
*for all j* = 1, 2, .... *For every n* ∈ ℕ, *let S*_{
n
} *be S-mapping generated by T*_{
n
}, ..., *T*_{1} *and α*_{
n
}, *α*_{n-1}, ..., *α*_{1}. *Then, for every x* ∈ *C and k* ∈ ℕ, lim_{n→∞}*U*_{
n
},_{
k
}*x exists*.

*Proof*. Let *x* ∈ *C* and
. Fix *k* ∈ ℕ, then for every *n* ∈ ℕ with *n* ≥ *k*,

Since *a* ∈ (0, 1), we have lim_{n→∞}*a*^{
n
} = 0. From (2.5), we have that {*U*_{
n
},_{
k
}*x*} is a Cauchy sequence. Hence lim _{n→∞}*U*_{n,k}*x* exists. □

Such a mapping *S* is called *S*-mapping generated by *T*_{
n
}, *T*_{n-1}, ... and *α*_{
n
}, *α*_{n- 1}, ...

*C*and

*D*be a bounded subset of

*C*. Then, we have

**Lemma 2.12**. *Let C be a nonempty closed convex subset of a real Hilbert space. Let*

as *n* → ∞. This implies that *U*_{∞},_{

From *U*_{∞,k}*x*_{0} = *x*_{0}, ∀*k* ∈ ℕ, and (2.15), we obtain that *T*_{
