In this paper, we define the modular space by using the Zweier operator and a modular. Then, we consider it equipped with the Luxemburg norm and also examine the uniform Opial property and property β. Finally, we show that this space has the fixed point property.

In literature, there are many papers about the geometrical properties of different sequence spaces such as [1–9]. Opial  introduced the Opial property and proved that the sequence spaces () have this property but (, ) does not have it. Franchetti  showed that any infinite dimensional Banach space has an equivalent norm that satisfies the Opial property. Later, Prus  introduced and investigated the uniform Opial property for Banach spaces. The Opial property is important because Banach spaces with this property have the weak fixed point property.
2 Definition and preliminaries
Let be a real Banach space and let (resp. ) be the unit sphere (resp. the unit ball) of X. A Banach space X has the Opial property if for any weakly null sequence in X and any x in , the inequality holds. We say that X has the uniform Opial property if for any there exists such that for any with and any weakly null sequence in the unit sphere of X, the inequality holds.
For a bounded set , the ball-measure of noncompactness was defined by . The function Δ defined by is called the modulus of noncompact convexity. A Banach space X is said to have property , if . This property is an important concept in the fixed point theory and a Banach space X possesses property if and only if it is reflexive and has the uniform Opial property.
A Banach space X is called nearly uniformly convex (NUC) if for every , there exists such that for every sequence with , we have . Huff  proved that every (NUC) Banach space is reflexive and has property . A Banach space X has property if and only if for each , there exists such that for each element and each sequence in with , there is an index k for which .

If the modular ρ is convex, then the equality defines a norm which is called the Luxemburg norm.
A modular ρ is said to satisfy the -condition if for any , there exist constants , such that for all with . If ρ provides the -condition for any with dependent on a, then ρ provides the strong -condition (briefly ).

It is easy to see that the space is a Banach space with respect to the Luxemburg norm.

3 Main results
Since is reflexive and convex, -type spaces have many useful applications, and it is natural to consider a geometric structure of these spaces. From this point of view, we generalized the space by using the Zweier operator and then obtained the equality , that is, it was seen that the structure of the space was preserved. In this section, our goal is to investigate a geometric structure of the modular space related to the fixed point theory. For this, we will examine property and the uniform Opial property for . Finally, we will give some fixed point results. To do this, we need some results which are important in our opinion.

Since property implies NUC, NUC implies property and property implies reflexivity, we can give the following result from Theorem 3.8.
Corollary 3.9 The space is nearly uniform convex, reflexive and also it has property .
