The purpose of this paper is to characterize the conditions for the convergence of the iterative scheme in the sense of Agarwal et al. (J. Nonlinear Convex. Anal. 8(1): 61-79, 2007), associated with nonexpansive and ϕ-hemicontractive mappings in a nonempty convex subset of an arbitrary Banach space.

Let be an operator.
for all . If , then T is called non-expansive, and if , T is called contraction.
- (i)T is said to be strongly pseudocontractive if there exists a such that for each , there exists satisfying
- (ii)T is said to be strictly hemicontractive if and if there exists a such that for each and , there exists satisfying
- (iii)T is said to be ϕ-strongly pseudocontractive if there exists a strictly increasing function with such that for each , there exists satisfying
- (iv)T is said to be ϕ-hemicontractive if and if there exists a strictly increasing function with such that for each and , there exists satisfying
Clearly, each strictly hemicontractive operator is ϕ-hemicontractive.
- (a)the Mann iteration scheme  is defined by the following sequence :
where is a sequence in ;
where , are sequences in is known as the Ishikawa  iteration scheme;
where , are sequences in , is known as the Agarwal-O’Regan-Sahu  iteration scheme;
where , are sequences in , is known as the modified Agarwal-O’Regan-Sahu iteration scheme.
Chidume  established that the Mann iteration sequence converges strongly to the unique fixed point of T in case T is a Lipschitz strongly pseudo-contractive mapping from a bounded closed convex subset of (or ) into itself. Afterwards, several authors generalized this result of Chidume in various directions [3, 6–12].
The purpose of this paper is to characterize conditions for the convergence of the iterative scheme in the sense of Agarwal et al.  associated with nonexpansive and ϕ-hemicontractive mappings in a nonempty convex subset of an arbitrary Banach space. Our results improve and generalize most results in recent literature [1, 3, 5, 6, 8, 9, 11, 12].
2 Main result
The following result is now well known.
Lemma 3 
Now, we prove our main result.
converges strongly to the common fixed point q of S and T.
, and are bounded.
Proof First, we prove that (a) implies (b).
Since T is ϕ-hemicontractive, it follows that is a singleton. Let for some .
Thus, . Therefore, , and are bounded.
Second, we need to show that (b) implies (a). Suppose that , and are bounded.
It is clear that . Let . Next, we will prove that .
where the second inequality holds by the convexity of .
which is impossible. Hence, . That is, (2.11) holds for all . Thus, (2.11) ensures that . This completes the proof. □
Taking in Theorem 4, we get the following.
converges strongly to the unique fixed point q of T.
All the results can also be proved for the same iterative scheme with error terms.
The known results for strongly pseudocontractive mappings are weakened by the ϕ-hemicontractive mappings.
Our results hold in arbitrary Banach spaces, where as other known results are restricted for (or ) spaces and q-uniformly smooth Banach spaces.
Theorem 4 is more general in comparison to the results of Agarwal et al.  in the context of the class of ϕ-hemicontractive mappings. Theorem 4 extends convergence results coercing ϕ-hemicontractive mappings in the literature in the framework of Agarwal-O’Regan-Sahu iteration process (see also [14–21]).
converges strongly to the solution of the system .
, and are bounded.
Proof Suppose that is the solution of the system . Define by and , respectively. Since S and T are nonexpansive and uniformly continuous ϕ-strongly accretive operators, respectively, so are G and , then is the common fixed point of G and . Thus, Theorem 7 follows from Theorem 4. □
Then defined by (2.1) in Theorem 4 converges to 0, which is the common fixed point of S and T.
