# Δ-convergence for proximal point algorithm and fixed point problem in CAT(0) spaces

## Abstract

In this paper, we prove the Δ-convergence of a modified proximal point algorithm for common fixed points in a CAT(0) space for different classes of generalized nonexpansive mappings including a total asymptotically nonexpansive mapping, a multivalued mapping, and a minimizer of a convex function. The results in this paper generalize the corresponding results given by some authors. Moreover, numerical example is given to illustrate and show the Δ-convergence of the proposed algorithm for supporting our result.

## Introduction

Let $$(Y,\theta )$$ be a geodesic space and $$h:Y\rightarrow (-\infty, \infty ]$$ be a proper convex function. By $$\arg \min_{r\in Y} h (r)$$, we denote the set of minimizers of a convex function. To solve $$s \in Y$$ such that

$$h(s)=\min_{r\in Y}h(r),$$

in optimization theory a powerful tool is the well-known PPA which was introduced by Martinet .

Rockafellar  studied, the convergence to a solution of the convex minimization problem in the framework of a Hilbert space by the PPA. He also proved that the sequence $$\{s_{m}\}$$ converges weakly to a minimizer of a convex function h such that $$\sum_{m=1}^{\infty } \pi _{m}=\infty$$.

Bacak  introduced the PPA in a CAT(0) space $$(Y,\theta )$$ as follows:

\begin{aligned} \textstyle\begin{cases} s_{1}\in Y, \\ s_{m+1} = \arg \min_{r\in Y}[h (r) + \frac{1}{2\pi _{m}}\theta ^{2}(r,s _{m})], \quad\forall m\in \mathbb{N}, \end{cases}\displaystyle \end{aligned}

where $$\pi _{m}>0, \forall m\in \mathbb{N}$$, and he showed that, if h has a minimizer and $$\sum_{m=1}^{\infty }\pi _{m}=\infty$$, then the sequence $$\{s_{m}\}$$ Δ-converges to its minimizer .

Cholamjiak  modified the PPA in CAT(0) spaces $$(Y,\theta )$$ by using the Halpern method as follows:

\begin{aligned} \textstyle\begin{cases} r_{m}=\arg \min_{r\in Y}[h(r)+\frac{1}{2r}\theta ^{2}(r,s_{m})], \\ s_{m+1}=a_{m}u\oplus (1-a_{m})r_{m}, \quad\forall m\in \mathbb{N}, \end{cases}\displaystyle \end{aligned}

where $$r> 0$$, $$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }a_{m}=0$$, and $$\sum_{m=1} ^{\infty }a_{m}=\infty$$. He proved that the sequence $$\{s_{m}\}$$ converges to its minimizer.

Cholamjiak et al.  modified the following PPA in CAT(0) spaces as follows:

\begin{aligned} \textstyle\begin{cases} q_{m}=\arg \min_{r\in Y}[h(r)+\frac{1}{2\pi _{m}}\theta ^{2}(r,s_{m})], \\ r_{m}=(1-b_{m})s_{m}\oplus b_{m}\mathcal{T}_{1}q_{m}, \\ s_{m+1}=(1-a_{m}\mathcal{T}_{1}s_{m}\oplus a_{m}\mathcal{T}_{2}r_{m},\quad \forall m\in \mathbb{N} \end{cases}\displaystyle \end{aligned}

and established some strong convergence theorems of the proposed algorithm to common fixed points of nonexpansive mappings and to minimizers of a convex function. Chang et al.  established some strong convergence theorems of the PPA to a common fixed point of asymptotically nonexpansive mappings and to minimizers of a convex function in CAT(0) spaces.

Kitkuan and Padcharoen  studied the iteration process in CAT(0) spaces as follows:

\begin{aligned} \textstyle\begin{cases} p_{m}=(1-a_{m})s_{m}\oplus a_{m}\mathcal{T}^{m}s_{m}, \\ r_{m}=(1-b_{m})p_{m}\oplus b_{m}\mathcal{T}^{m}p_{m}, \\ s_{m+1}=(1-c_{m})r_{m}\oplus c_{m}\mathcal{T}^{m}r_{m},\quad\forall m \in \mathbb{N}, \end{cases}\displaystyle \end{aligned}

where $$\{a_{m}\}, \{b_{m}\}$$, and $$\{c_{m}\}$$ are real sequences in $$(0,1)$$. They also proved some strong convergence theorems for generalized asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive mappings under certain conditions.

Markin  and Nadler  introduced the study of fixed points for multivalued contractions and nonexpansive mappings using the Hausdorff metric. Shimizu and Takahashi  proved the existence of fixed points for multivalued nonexpansive mappings in convex metric spaces, that is, every multivalued mapping $$\mathcal{T}:Y\rightarrow \mathcal{C}(Y)$$ has a fixed point in a bounded, complete, and uniformly convex metric space $$(y,\theta )$$, where $$\mathcal{C}(Y)$$ is the family of all compact subsets of Y.

Motivated and inspired by the above results, we propose the modified proximal point algorithm with the process for three asymptotically nonexpansive mappings and multivalued mappings in CAT(0) spaces. Under suitable conditions, we prove some convergence theorems of the proposed method. Further, we provide a numerical example to illustrate and show the efficiency of the proposed algorithm for supporting our main results.

## Preliminaries

A metric space $$(Y,\theta )$$ is called a CAT space if it is geodesically connected and every geodesic triangle in Y is at least as “thin” as its comparison triangle in the Euclidean plane.

A subset W of a CAT(0) space Y is said to be convex if, for any $$s,r\in W$$, we have $$[s,r]\subset W$$, where

$$[s,r]:=\bigl\{ t s\oplus (1-t)r:0\leq t\leq 1\bigr\}$$

is the unique geodesic joining s and r.

In this paper, we can write $$(1-t)s\oplus tr$$ for the unique point q in the geodesic segment joining from s to r such that

$$\theta (s,q)=t\theta (s,r), \theta (r,q)=(1-t)\theta (s,r),$$

where $$t\in [0,1]$$.

### Lemma 2.1

Let Y be a geodesic space in a CAT(0) space. For all $$s,r,q\in Y$$ and $$t\in [0,1]$$, we have

1. (i)

$$\theta ^{2}((1-t)s\oplus tr,q)\leq (1-t)\theta ^{2}(s,q)+t \theta ^{2}(r,q)-t(1-t)\theta ^{2}(s,r)$$,

2. (ii)

$$\theta ((1-t)s\oplus tr,q)\leq (1-t)\theta (s,q)+t \theta (r,q)$$.

### Definition 2.1

Let $$\mathcal{T}:W\rightarrow W$$ be a mapping.

1. (i)

An element $$s\in W$$ is said to be a fixed point of $$\mathcal{T}$$ if $$s=\mathcal{T}s$$. Denote by $$G(\mathcal{T})$$ the set of fixed points of $$\mathcal{T}$$;

2. (ii)

semi-compact if every bounded sequence $$\{s_{m}\}\subset W$$, satisfying $$\theta (s_{m},\mathcal{T}s_{m})\rightarrow 0$$ as $$m\rightarrow \infty$$, has a convergent subsequence;

3. (iii)

nonexpansive if $$\theta (\mathcal{T}s,\mathcal{T}r) \leq \theta (s,r)$$ for any $$s,r\in W$$;

4. (iv)

asymptotically nonexpansive if there exists a sequence $$\{e_{m}\}\subset [0,+\infty )$$ and $$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }e_{m}=0$$ such that

$$\theta \bigl(\mathcal{T}^{m}s,\mathcal{T}^{m}r\bigr)\leq (1+e_{m})\theta (s,r),\quad \forall s,r\in W,m\geq 1;$$
5. (v)

$$(\{\nu _{m}\},\{\mu _{m}\},\rho )$$-total asymptotically nonexpansive, if there exist nonnegative sequences $$\{\nu _{m}\},\{\mu _{m}\}$$ with $$\mu _{m}\rightarrow 0,\nu _{m}\rightarrow 0$$ and a strictly increasing continuous function $$\rho:[0,+\infty )\rightarrow [0,+ \infty )$$ with $$\rho (0)=0$$ such that

$$\theta \bigl(\mathcal{T}^{m}s,\mathcal{T}^{m}r\bigr)\leq \theta (s,r)+\nu _{m} \rho \bigl(\theta (s,r)\bigr)+\mu _{m},\quad \forall s,r\in W, m\geq 1;$$
6. (vi)

uniformly L-Lipschitzian if there exists a constant $$L>0$$ such that

$$\theta \bigl(\mathcal{T}^{m}s,\mathcal{T}^{m}r\bigr)\leq L \theta (s,r),\quad \forall s,r\in W,m\geq 1.$$

### Definition 2.2

Let $$\{s_{m}\}$$ be a bounded sequence in a CAT(0) space $$(Y,\theta )$$. For any $$s\in Y$$, we put

$$\hat{r}\bigl(s,\{s_{m}\}\bigr)=\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\sup \theta (s,s_{m}).$$

Then,

1. 1.

The asymptotic radius $$\hat{r}(\{s_{m}\})$$ of $$\{s_{m}\}$$ is given by

$$\hat{r}\bigl(\{s_{m}\}\bigr)=\inf\bigl\{ \hat{r}\bigl(s,\{s_{m}\} \bigr):s\in Y\bigr].$$
2. 2.

The asymptotic center $$\mathcal{A}(\{s_{m}\})$$ of $$\{s_{m}\}$$ is the set

$$\mathcal{A}\bigl(\{s_{m}\}\bigr)=\bigl\{ s\in Y:\hat{r}\bigl(s, \{s_{m}\}\bigr)=\hat{r}\bigl(\{s_{m} \}\bigr)\bigr\} .$$

In a complete CAT(0) space, $$\mathcal{A}(\{s_{m}\})$$ consists of exactly one point .

### Definition 2.3

A sequence $$\{s_{m}\}$$ in a CAT(0) space Y is said to be Δ-convergent to a point $$s\in Y$$ if s is the unique asymptotic center of $$\{u_{m}\}$$ for every subsequence $$\{u_{m}\}$$ of $$\{s_{m}\}$$. In this case, we write $$\Delta \lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }s_{m}=s$$ of $$\{s_{m}\}$$ and denote $$\mathcal{W}_{\Delta }(s_{m}):=\bigcup \{ \mathcal{A}(\{u_{m}\})\}$$, where the union is sum over all subsequences $$\{u_{m}\}$$ of $$\{s_{m}\}$$.

### Lemma 2.2

()

If $$\{s_{m}\}$$ is a bounded sequence in a complete CAT(0) space with $$\mathcal{A}(\{s_{m}\})=\{s\}, \{u_{m}\}$$ is a subsequence of $$\{s_{m}\}$$ with $$\mathcal{A}(\{u_{m}\})=\{u\}$$, and the sequence $$\{\theta (s_{m},u)\}$$ converges, then $$s=u$$.

### Lemma 2.3

()

Assume that a subset of a complete CAT(0) space $$(Y,\theta )$$ is closed, convex and $$\mathcal{T}:W\rightarrow W$$ is a total asymptotically nonexpansive mapping. Let $$\{s_{m}\}$$ be a bounded sequence in W such that $$\Delta \lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }s_{m}=t$$ and $$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},\mathcal{T}s_{m})=0$$. Then $$\mathcal{T}t=t$$.

Let $$\mathcal{CB}(W)$$ be a collection of all nonempty and closed bounded subsets and $$\mathcal{P}(W)$$ be a collection of all nonempty proximal bounded and closed subsets of W, respectively. Let $$\mathcal{H}(\cdot,\cdot)$$ be the Hausdorff distance on $$\mathcal{CB}(W)$$ defined by

$$\mathcal{H}(\mathcal{A},\mathcal{B}):=\max \Bigl\{ \sup_{s\in \mathcal{A}} \operatorname{dist}(s, \mathcal{B}),\sup_{r\in \mathcal{B}} \operatorname{dist}(r,\mathcal{A})\Bigr\} ,\quad\forall \mathcal{A},\mathcal{B}\in \mathcal{CB}(W).$$

A subset $$W\subset Y\neq \emptyset$$ is said to be proximal if, for each $$s\in Y$$, there exists an element $$r\in W$$ such that

$$\theta (s,r)=\operatorname{dist}(s,W):=\inf \bigl\{ \theta (s,q):q\in W\bigr\} .$$

It is well known that each weakly compact convex subset of a Banach space is proximal as well as each closed convex subset of a uniformly convex Banach space is also proximal.

Let $$\mathcal{T}:Y\rightarrow 2^{Y}$$ be a multivalued mapping. An element $$s\in Y$$ is said to be a fixed point of $$\mathcal{T}$$ if $$s\in \mathcal{T}s$$.

### Definition 2.4

A multivalued mapping $$\mathcal{T}:Y\rightarrow CB(Y)$$ is called nonexpansive if

$$\mathcal{H}(\mathcal{T}s,\mathcal{T}r)\leq \theta (\mathcal{T}s, \mathcal{T}r),\quad s,r\in Y.$$

Recall that a function $$h:W\rightarrow (-\infty,\infty ]$$ is said to be convex if, for any geodesic $$[s,r]:=\{c_{s,r}(a):0\leq a\leq 1\}:= \{a s\oplus (1-a)r:0\leq a\leq 1\}$$ joining $$s,r\in W$$, the function $$h\circ c$$ is convex, i.e.,

$$h\bigl(c_{s,r}(a)\bigr):=h\bigl(a s\oplus (1-a)r\bigr)\leq a h(s)+(1-a)h(r).$$

For all $$\pi >0$$, define the Moreau–Yosida resolvent of h in a complete CAT(0) space Y as follows:

$$\mathcal{J}_{\pi }(s)=\mathop{\arg}_{r\in Y}\min \biggl[h(r)+ \frac{1}{2\pi }\theta ^{2}(r,s)\biggr],\quad \forall s\in Y.$$

Let $$h:Y\rightarrow (-\infty,\infty ]$$ be a proper, convex, and lower semi-continuous function. The set $$F(\mathcal{J}_{\pi })$$ of fixed points of the resolvent $$\mathcal{J}_{\pi }$$ associated with h coincides with the set $$\arg _{r\in Y}\min h(r)$$ of minimizers of h. Also, for any $$\pi >0$$, the resolvent $$\mathcal{J}_{\pi }$$ of h is nonexpansive [4, 12].

### Lemma 2.4

()

Let $$(Y,\theta )$$ be a complete CAT(0) space and $$h:Y\rightarrow (-\infty,\infty ]$$ be proper, convex, and lower semi-continuous function. Then, for all $$s,r\in Y$$ and $$\pi >0$$, we have

$$\frac{1}{2\pi }\theta ^{2}(\mathcal{J}_{\pi }s,r)- \frac{1}{2\pi }\theta ^{2}(s,r)+\frac{1}{2\pi }\theta ^{2}(s,\mathcal{J}_{\pi }s)+h( \mathcal{J}_{\pi }s)\leq h(r).$$

### Lemma 2.5

()

Let $$(Y,\theta )$$ be a complete CAT(0) space and $$h:W\rightarrow (-\infty,\infty ]$$ be a proper convex and lower semi-continuous function. Then the following identity holds:

$$\mathcal{J}_{\pi }s=\mathcal{J}_{\mu } \biggl(\frac{\pi -\mu }{\pi } \mathcal{J}_{\pi }s\oplus \frac{\mu }{\pi }s \biggr),\quad\forall s\in Y$$

and $$\pi >\mu >0$$.

### Lemma 2.6

()

Let $$\{a_{m}\},\{b_{m}\}$$, and $$\{r_{m}\}$$ be sequences of nonnegative real numbers such that

$$a_{m+1}\leq (1+b_{m})a_{m}+r_{m},\quad \forall m \in \mathbb{N}.$$

If $$\sum_{m=1}^{\infty }b_{m}<\infty$$ and $$\sum_{m=1}^{\infty }r_{m}< \infty$$, then $$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }a_{m}$$ exists.

## Convergence results

Now we construct and prove the main result of this paper.

### Theorem 3.1

Let $$(Y,\theta )$$ be a complete CAT(0) space and W be a nonempty closed convex subset. Let $$\mathcal{T}:W\rightarrow \mathcal{P}(W)$$ be a multivalued mapping and $$\mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}$$ be a nonexpansive mapping. Let $$h:Y\rightarrow (-\infty,\infty ]$$ be a proper convex and lower semi-continuous function, $$A,B,C:W\rightarrow W$$ be three total asymptotically nonexpansive mappings with $$\{\mu _{m}\}$$ and $$\{\nu _{m}\}$$ being nonnegative real sequences such that $$\sum_{m=1} ^{\infty }\mu _{m}<\infty$$ and $$\sum_{m=1}^{\infty }\nu _{m}<\infty$$. There exists a constant $$M_{1}>0$$ such that $$\zeta (\theta )\leq M _{1}\theta,\theta \geq 0$$ with $$G(A)\cap G(B)\cap G(C)\neq \emptyset$$ and

$$\varXi:=G(A)\cap G(B)\cap G(C)\cap G(\mathcal{T})\cap \arg \min _{r\in W}h(r)\neq \emptyset.$$

Let $$\{s_{m}\}$$ be defined by

\begin{aligned} \textstyle\begin{cases} p_{m}=\arg \min_{r\in Y}[h(r)+\frac{1}{2\pi _{m}}\theta ^{2}(r,s_{m})], \\ q_{m}=(1-c_{m})p_{m}\oplus c_{m}A^{m}z_{m}, \\ r_{m}=(1-b_{m})q_{m}\oplus b_{m}B^{m}y_{m}, \\ s_{m+1}=(1-a_{m})r_{m}\oplus a_{m}C^{m}x_{m}, \end{cases}\displaystyle \end{aligned}
(3.1)

where $$z_{m}\in \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(p_{m}), y_{m}\in \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(q_{m})$$, and $$x_{m}\in \mathcal{P}_{ \mathcal{T}}(r_{m})$$ for each $$m\in \mathbb{N}$$. Let $$\{a_{m}\}, \{b _{m}\}$$, and $$\{c_{m}\}$$ be sequences in $$[0,1]$$ for all $$m\in \mathbb{N}$$ and $$\{\pi _{m}\}$$ be a sequence with $$\pi _{m}>0$$ for all $$m\in \mathbb{N}$$. Then

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},t) \quad\textit{exists for all } t\in \varXi.$$

### Proof

Let $$t\in \varXi$$. Then $$t=\mathrm{At}=Bt=Ct$$ and $$h(t)\leq h(r)$$ for any $$r\in W$$. So, we have

$$h(t)+\frac{1}{2\pi _{m}}\theta ^{2}(t,t)\leq h(r)+\frac{1}{2\pi _{m}} \theta ^{2}(r,t)$$

for each $$r\in W$$, and so we have $$t=\mathcal{J}_{\pi _{m}}t$$ for each $$m\in \mathbb{N}$$. Since $$p_{m}=\mathcal{J}_{\pi _{m}}s_{m}$$ and $$\mathcal{J}_{\pi _{m}}$$ is nonexpansive, we have

$$\theta (p_{m},t)=\theta (\mathcal{J}_{\pi _{m}}s_{m}, \mathcal{J}_{\pi _{m}}t)\leq \theta (s_{m},t).$$
(3.2)

Now, using (3.1), (3.2), and Lemma 2.1(ii), we have

\begin{aligned} \theta (q_{m},t) ={}&\theta \bigl((1-c_{m})p_{m} \oplus c_{m}A^{m}z_{m},t\bigr) \\ \leq {}&(1-c_{m})\theta (p_{m},t)+c_{m}\theta \bigl(A^{m}z_{m},t\bigr) \\ \leq {}&(1-c_{m})\theta (p_{m},t)+c_{m}\bigl[\theta (z_{m},t)+\nu _{m}\bigl( \theta (z_{m},t)\bigr)+\mu _{m}\bigr] \\ \leq{} &(1-c_{m})\theta (p_{m},t)+c_{m}\bigl[\theta (z_{m},t)+\nu _{m}M_{1} \theta (z_{m},t)+\mu _{m}\bigr] \\ ={}&(1-c_{m})\theta (p_{m},t)+c_{m}(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\theta (z_{m},t)+c _{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq {}&(1-c_{m})\operatorname{dist}\bigl(p_{m}, \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(t)\bigr)+c_{m}(1+\nu _{m}M_{1}) \operatorname{dist}\bigl(z_{m},\mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(t) \bigr)+c_{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1-c_{m})\mathcal{H}\bigl(\mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(p_{m}), \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(t)\bigr)+ c_{m}(1+\nu _{m}M_{1}) \mathcal{H}\bigl( \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(p_{m}), \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(t)\bigr) \\ &{}+c_{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1-c_{m})\theta (p_{m},t)+c_{m}(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\theta (p_{m},t)+c _{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\theta (p_{m},t)+c_{m} \mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\theta (s_{m},t)+\mu _{m}, \end{aligned}
(3.3)

and using (3.1), (3.3), and Lemma 2.1(ii), we have

\begin{aligned} \theta (r_{m},t) ={}&\theta \bigl((1-b_{m})q_{m} \oplus b_{m}B^{m}y_{m},t\bigr) \\ \leq {}&(1-b_{m})\theta (q_{m},t)+b_{m}\theta \bigl(B^{m}y_{m},t\bigr) \\ \leq{} &(1-b_{m})\theta (q_{m},t)+b_{m}\bigl[\theta (y_{m},t)+\nu _{m}\bigl( \theta (y_{m},t)\bigr)+\mu _{m}\bigr] \\ \leq{} &(1-b_{m})\theta (q_{m},t)+b_{m}\bigl[\theta (y_{m},t)+\nu _{m}M_{1} \theta (y_{m},t)+\mu _{m}\bigr] \\ ={}&(1-b_{m})\theta (q_{m},t)+b_{m}(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\theta (y_{m},t)+b _{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1-b_{m})\operatorname{dist}\bigl(q_{m}, \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(t)\bigr)+b_{m}(1+\nu _{m}M_{1}) \operatorname{dist}\bigl(y_{m},\mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(t) \bigr)+b_{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1-b_{m})\mathcal{H}\bigl(\mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(q_{m}), \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(t)\bigr) +b_{m}(1+\nu _{m}M_{1}) \mathcal{H}\bigl( \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(q_{m}), \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(t)\bigr) \\ &{}+b_{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1-b_{m})\theta (q_{m},t)+b_{m}(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\theta (q_{m},t)+b _{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\theta (q_{m},t)+b_{m} \mu _{m} \\ \leq {}&(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\bigl[(1+\nu _{m}M_{1}) \theta (s_{m},t)+\mu _{m}\bigr]+b _{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq {}&(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})^{2}\theta (s_{m},t)+(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\mu _{m}+b _{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})^{2}\theta (s_{m},t)+(2+\nu _{m}M_{1})\mu _{m}. \end{aligned}
(3.4)

Similarly using (3.1), (3.4), and Lemma 2.1(ii), we have

\begin{aligned} \theta (s_{m+1},t) ={}&\theta \bigl((1-a_{m})r_{m} \oplus a_{m}C^{m}x_{m},t\bigr) \\ \leq {}&(1-a_{m})\theta (r_{m},t)+a_{m}\theta \bigl(C^{m}x_{m},t\bigr) \\ \leq {}&(1-a_{m})\theta (r_{m},t)+a_{m}\bigl[\theta (x_{m},t)+\nu _{m}\bigl( \theta (x_{m},t)\bigr)+\mu _{m}\bigr] \\ \leq{} &(1-a_{m})\theta (r_{m},t)+a_{m}\bigl[\theta (x_{m},t)+\nu _{m}M_{1} \theta (x_{m},t)+\mu _{m}\bigr] \\ ={}&(1-a_{m})\theta (r_{m},t)+a_{m}(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\theta (x_{m},t)+a _{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1-a_{m})\operatorname{dist}\bigl(r_{m}, \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(t)\bigr)+a_{m}(1+\nu _{m}M_{1}) \operatorname{dist}\bigl(x_{m},\mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(t) \bigr)+a_{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1-a_{m})\mathcal{H}\bigl(\mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(r_{m}), \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(t)\bigr) +a_{m}(1+\nu _{m}M_{1}) \mathcal{H}\bigl( \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(r_{m}), \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(t)\bigr) \\ &{}+a_{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1-a_{m})\theta (r_{m},t)+a_{m}(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\theta (r_{m},t)+a _{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq {}&(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\theta (r_{m},t)+a_{m} \mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\bigl[(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})^{2} \theta (s_{m},t)+(2+\nu _{m}M_{1})\mu _{m}\bigr]+a_{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq {}&(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})^{3}\theta (s_{m},t)+(1+\nu _{m}M_{1}) (2+\nu _{m}M_{1})\mu _{m}+a_{m}\mu _{m} \\ \leq{} &(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})^{3}\theta (s_{m},t)+3(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\mu _{m} \\ ={}&(1+\mathcal{S}_{m})\theta (s_{m},t)+\mathcal{W}_{m}, \end{aligned}
(3.5)

where $$\mathcal{S}_{m}=3M_{1}\nu _{m}+3M_{1}^{2}\nu _{m}^{2}+M_{1}^{3} \nu _{m}^{3}$$ and $$\mathcal{W}_{m}=3(1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\mu _{m}$$. Since it is given that $$\sum_{m=1}^{\infty }\mu _{m}<\infty$$ and $$\sum_{m=1} ^{\infty }\nu _{m}<\infty$$, we get $$\sum_{m=1}^{\infty }\mathcal{S} _{m}<\infty$$ and $$\sum_{m=1}^{\infty }\mathcal{W}_{m}<\infty$$. From Lemma 2.6, (3.5) we have $$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},t)$$ exists, and we assume that

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},t)=\kappa \geq 0.$$
(3.6)

From (3.6), $$\{s_{m}\}$$ is bounded and so the sequences $$\{p_{m}\}, \{q_{m}\}, \{r_{m}\}, \{A^{m}s_{m}\}, \{B^{m}s_{m}\}$$, and $$\{C^{m}s _{m}\}$$ are bounded. □

### Theorem 3.2

Let $$(Y,\theta )$$ be a complete CAT(0) space and W be a nonempty closed convex subset. Let $$\mathcal{T}:W\rightarrow \mathcal{P}(W)$$ be a multivalued mapping and $$\mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}$$ be a nonexpansive mapping. Let $$h:Y\rightarrow (-\infty,\infty ]$$ be a proper convex and lower semi-continuous function and $$A,B,C:W\rightarrow W$$ be three total asymptotically nonexpansive mappings with $$\{\mu _{m}\}$$ and $$\{\nu _{m}\}$$ being nonnegative real sequences such that $$\sum_{m=1} ^{\infty }\mu _{m}<\infty$$ and $$\sum_{m=1}^{\infty }\nu _{m}<\infty$$. There exists a constant $$M_{1}>0$$ such that $$\zeta (\theta )\leq M _{1}\theta,\theta \geq 0$$, with $$G(A)\cap G(B)\cap G(C)\neq \emptyset$$ and

$$\varXi:=G(A)\cap G(B)\cap G(C)\cap G(\mathcal{T})\cap \arg \min _{r\in W}h(r)\neq \emptyset.$$

Let $$\{s_{m}\}$$ be defined by

\begin{aligned} \textstyle\begin{cases} p_{m}=\arg \min_{r\in Y}[h(r)+\frac{1}{2\pi _{m}}\theta ^{2}(r,s_{m})], \\ q_{m}=(1-c_{m})p_{m}\oplus c_{m}A^{m}z_{m}, \\ r_{m}=(1-b_{m})q_{m}\oplus b_{m}B^{m}y_{m}, \\ s_{m+1}=(1-a_{m})r_{m}\oplus a_{m}C^{m}x_{m}, \end{cases}\displaystyle \end{aligned}

where $$z_{m}\in \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(p_{m}), y_{m}\in \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(q_{m})$$, and $$x_{m}\in \mathcal{P}_{ \mathcal{T}}(r_{m})$$ for each $$m\in \mathbb{N}$$. Let $$\{a_{m}\}, \{b _{m}\}$$, and $$\{c_{m}\}$$ be sequences in $$[0,1]$$ for all $$m\in \mathbb{N}$$ and $$\{\pi _{m}\}$$ be a sequence with $$\pi _{m}>0$$ for all $$m\in \mathbb{N}$$. Then

1. (i)

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},p_{m})=0$$;

2. (ii)

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},As_{m})= \lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},Bs_{m}) = \lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},Cs_{m})=0$$.

### Proof

(i) By Lemma 2.4, we have

$$\frac{1}{2\pi _{m}} \bigl\{ \theta ^{2}(p_{m},t)-\theta ^{2}(s_{m},t)+ \theta ^{2}(s_{m},p_{m}) \bigr\} \leq h(t)-h(p_{m}).$$

Since $$h(t)\leq h(p_{m})$$ for each $$m\in \mathbb{N}$$, we have

$$\theta ^{2}(s_{m},p_{m})\leq \theta ^{2}(s_{m},t)-\theta ^{2}(p_{m},t).$$
(3.7)

From (3.5), we have

$$\theta (s_{m+1},t)\leq (1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\theta (r_{m},t)+a_{m}\mu _{m}$$

and

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\inf \theta (r_{m},t)\geq \kappa.$$
(3.8)

From (3.4), we have

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\sup \theta (r_{m},t)\leq \kappa.$$
(3.9)

So, from (3.8) and (3.9), we have

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (r_{m},t)=\kappa.$$
(3.10)

Similarly, from (3.4), we have

$$\theta (r_{m},t)\leq (1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\theta (q_{m},t)+b_{m}\mu _{m}$$

and

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\inf \theta (q_{m},t)\geq \kappa.$$
(3.11)

From (3.3), we have

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\sup \theta (q_{m},t)\leq \kappa.$$
(3.12)

From (3.11) and (3.12), we have

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (q_{m},t)=\kappa.$$
(3.13)

From (3.3), we have

$$\theta (q_{m},t)\leq (1+\nu _{m}M_{1})\theta (p_{m},t)+c_{m}\mu _{m}$$

and

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\inf \theta (p_{m},t)\geq \kappa.$$
(3.14)

Also from (3.3), we have

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\sup \theta (p_{m},t)\leq \kappa.$$
(3.15)

From (3.14) and (3.15), we have

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (p_{m},t)=\kappa.$$
(3.16)

So from (3.7), we have

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},p_{m})=0.$$
(3.17)

(ii) Suppose that Ξ is nonempty, and let $$t\in \varXi$$. From (3.6), $$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},t)$$ exists and $$\{s_{m}\}$$ is bounded. From (3.1) and Lemma 2.1(i), we have

(3.18)

for some $$p,q>0$$, which implies that

$$\theta ^{2}(q_{m},t)\leq \theta ^{2}(s_{m},t)+p \nu _{m}+q\mu _{m},$$

and from (3.1) and Lemma 2.1(i), we have

for some $$t,w>0$$, which implies that

Similarly, we have

### Theorem 3.3

Let W be a nonempty closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space. Let $$\mathcal{T}:W\rightarrow \mathcal{P}(W)$$ be a multivalued mapping and $$\mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}$$ be a nonexpansive mapping. Let $$h:Y\rightarrow (-\infty,\infty ]$$ be a proper convex and lower semi-continuous function and $$A,B,C:W\rightarrow W$$ be three total asymptotically nonexpansive mappings. Then $$\{s_{m}\}$$ given by (3.1) is Δ-convergent to a common fixed point of Ξ.

### Proof

From Lemma 2.5 and (3.17), we have

\begin{aligned} \theta (\mathcal{J}_{\pi }s_{m},s_{m}) &\leq \theta (\mathcal{J}_{ \pi }s_{m},p_{m})+\theta (p_{m},s_{m}) \\ &=\theta (\mathcal{J}_{\pi }s_{m},\mathcal{J}_{\pi _{m}}s_{m})+ \theta (p_{m},s_{m}) \\ &=\theta \biggl(\mathcal{J}_{\pi }s_{m},\mathcal{J}_{\pi } \biggl(\frac{ \pi _{m}-\pi }{\pi _{m}}\mathcal{J}_{\pi _{m}}s_{m}\oplus \frac{\pi }{\pi _{m}}s_{m} \biggr) \biggr) +\theta (p_{m},s_{m}) \\ &\leq \theta \biggl(s_{m}, \biggl(1-\frac{\pi }{\pi _{m}} \biggr) \mathcal{J}_{\pi _{m}}s_{m}\oplus \frac{\pi }{\pi _{m}}s_{m} \biggr)+ \theta (p_{m},s_{m}) \\ &\leq \biggl(1-\frac{\pi }{\pi _{m}} \biggr)\theta (s_{m},\mathcal{J} _{\pi _{m}}s_{m})+\frac{\pi }{\pi _{m}}\theta (s_{m},s_{m})+ \theta (p _{m},s_{m}) \\ &= \biggl(1-\frac{\pi }{\pi _{m}} \biggr)\theta (s_{m},p_{m})+ \theta (p _{m},s_{m}) \\ &\rightarrow 0 \quad\text{as }m\rightarrow \infty. \end{aligned}

From Theorem 3.1, we have $$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},t)$$ exists for all $$t\in \varXi$$ and

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},As_{m})= \lim _{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},Bs_{m})= \lim _{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},Cs_{m})=0.$$

Next, we have to show that

$$\mathcal{W}_{\Delta }(s_{m})=\bigcup _{\{u_{m}\}\subset \{s_{m}\}} \mathcal{A}\bigl(\{u_{n}\}\bigr)\subset \varXi.$$

Let $$u\in \mathcal{W}_{\Delta }(s_{m})$$. Then there exists a subsequence $$\{u_{m}\}$$ of $$\{s_{m}\}$$ such that $$\mathcal{A}(\{u_{m}\})=\{u\}$$. From Definition 2.3, there exists a subsequence $$\{v_{m}\}$$ of $$\{u_{m}\}$$ such that Δ-$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }v_{m}=v$$ for some $$v\in W$$. By Lemma 2.3, $$v\in \varXi$$. By Lemma 2.2, $$u=v$$. This shows that $$\mathcal{W}_{\Delta }(s_{m})\subset \varXi$$.

Finally, we have to prove that the sequence $$\{s_{m}\}$$ Δ-converges to a point in Ξ, which will prove that $$\mathcal{W}_{\Delta }(s_{m})$$ consists of exactly one point. Let $$\{u_{m}\}$$ be a subsequence of $$\{s_{m}\}$$ with $$\mathcal{A}(\{u_{m} \})=\{u\}$$, and let $$\mathcal{A}(\{s_{m}\})=\{s\}$$. Since $$u\in \mathcal{W}_{\Delta }(s_{m})\subset \varXi$$ and $$\{\theta (s_{m},u)\}$$ converges by Lemma 2.2, we have $$s=u$$. Thus, $$\mathcal{W}_{\Delta }(s _{m})=\{s\}$$. □

### Corollary 3.1

Let W be a nonempty closed convex subset of a real Hilbert space H. Let $$\mathcal{T}:W\rightarrow \mathcal{P}(W)$$ be a multivalued mapping, let $$h:Y\rightarrow (\infty,\infty ]$$ be a proper convex and lower semi-continuous function, and $$A,B,C$$, $$z_{m}\in \mathcal{P} _{\mathcal{T}}(p_{m}), y_{m}\in \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(q_{m}), x _{m}\in \mathcal{P}_{\mathcal{T}}(r_{m}), \{a_{m}\}, \{b_{m}\}, \{c _{m}\}$$, and $$\{\pi _{m}\}$$ satisfy all the conditions given in Theorem 3.1. Let $$\{s_{m}\}$$ be the sequence given by

\begin{aligned} \textstyle\begin{cases} p_{m}=\arg \min_{r\in Y} [h(r)+\frac{1}{2\pi _{m}} \Vert r-s_{m} \Vert ^{2}], \\ q_{m}=(1-c_{m})p_{m}\oplus c_{m}A^{m}z_{m}, \\ r_{m}=(1-b_{m})q_{m}\oplus b_{m}B^{m}y_{m}, \\ s_{m+1}=(1-a_{m})r_{m}\oplus a_{m}C^{m}x_{m} \end{cases}\displaystyle \end{aligned}

for each $$m\in \mathbb{N}$$, then the sequence $$\{s_{m}\}$$ converges weakly to a common point in Ξ.

Now we construct and prove strong convergence theorems.

Let W be a nonempty closed convex subset of a CAT(0) space $$(Y,\theta )$$. A family $$\{A,B,C,\mathcal{T}\}$$ of mappings is said to satisfy Condition $$(\varXi )$$ if there exists a nondecreasing function $$h:[0,\infty )\rightarrow [0,\infty )$$ with $$h(0)=0$$ and $$h(w)>0$$ for all $$w\in (0,\infty )$$ such that

$$\theta (s,As)\geq h\bigl(\theta (s,\mathcal{G})\bigr),$$

or

$$\theta (s,Bs)\geq h\bigl(\theta (s,\mathcal{G})\bigr),$$

or

$$\theta (s,Cs)\geq h\bigl(\theta (s,\mathcal{G})\bigr),$$

or

$$\theta (s,\mathcal{T}s)\geq h\bigl(\theta (s,\mathcal{G})\bigr),$$

for all $$s\in Y$$, where $$\mathcal{G}=G(A)\cap G(B)\cap G(C) \cap G(\mathcal{T})$$.

### Theorem 3.4

Suppose that the conditions in Theorem 3.1 are given and $$\{A,B,C, \mathcal{J}_{\pi }\}$$ satisfy Condition $$(\varXi )$$. Then the sequence $$\{s_{m}\}$$ strongly converges to a common element of Ξ.

### Proof

From Theorem 3.1 we have $$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},t)$$ exists for all $$t\in \varXi$$. Also it follows that $$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},\varXi )$$ exists. On the other hand, by Condition Ξ, we have

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta \bigl(\theta (s_{m},\varXi )\bigr)\geq \lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},As_{m})=0,$$

or

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta \bigl(\theta (s_{m},\varXi )\bigr)\geq \lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},Bs_{m})=0,$$

or

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta \bigl(\theta (s_{m},\varXi )\bigr)\geq \lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},Cs_{m})=0,$$

or

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta \bigl(\theta (s_{m},\varXi )\bigr)\geq \lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},\mathcal{J}_{\pi }s_{m})=0.$$

Thus, we have $$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }h(\theta (s_{m},\varXi ))=0$$. By using the property of h, we have

$$\lim_{m\rightarrow \infty }\theta (s_{m},\varXi )=0.$$

Thus, $$\{s_{m}\}$$ is a Cauchy sequence in Y, and so $$\{s_{m}\}$$ converges to a point $$t\in Y$$ and hence $$\theta (t,\varXi )=0$$. Since Ξ is closed, so we have $$t\in \varXi$$. □

### Remark 3.1

Our results extend the results of Cho et al.  in the framework of CAT(0) spaces. They established convergence theorems for three asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive mappings involving the convex and lower semi-continuous function for solving the convex minimization problem and the common fixed point problem.

## Numerical results

In this section, we give a numerical example to illustrate the convergence of the iterative algorithm given by (3.1) for supporting our main results.

### Example 4.1

Let $$Y=\mathbb{R}$$ be a Euclidean metric space and $$W=[1,12]$$. Let $$\mathcal{T}:W\rightarrow \mathcal{P}(W)$$ be the mapping defined by

$$\mathcal{T}(s)=\{2s-1\},\quad \forall s\in W.$$

Suppose that $$A,B,C:\mathbb{R}\rightarrow \mathbb{R}$$ are the mappings defined by

$$A(s)=\frac{5s+1}{6};\qquad B(s)=\sqrt{2s^{2}-2s+1} \quad{\mathrm{and}} \quad C(s)= \sqrt{s^{2}+s-1}.$$

For all $$s\in W$$, let $$h:Y\rightarrow (-\infty,\infty ]$$ defined by

$$h(s)= \Vert s \Vert _{1}+\frac{1}{2} \Vert s \Vert _{2}^{2}-2s+1.$$

It is easy to check that $$A,B,C$$ are uniformly continuous and total asymptotically nonexpansive mappings with $$G(A)\cap G(B)\cap G(C) \cap G(\mathcal{T})=\{1\}$$ and h is a proper convex and lower semi-continuous function.

Let $$a_{m}=\frac{3m-2}{6m},b_{m}=\frac{7m-3}{11m}$$, and $$c_{m}= \frac{11m-7}{19m}$$, and $$s_{1}=10$$ is the initial value. Then we obtain numerical results with the error values in Table 1.

From Table 1 and Fig. 1, we see that the sequence $$\{s_{m}\}$$ converges to 1 which is a common fixed point of three asymptotically nonexpansive mappings, multivalued mapping, and a solution of a minimizer of a function h. Figure 1 Figure 2

## Conclusion

In the above section, we prove the Δ-convergence of a modified proximal point algorithm for common fixed points in a CAT(0) space for generalized nonexpansive mappings which includes a total asymptotically nonexpansive mapping, a multivalued mapping, and a minimizer of a convex function. Moreover, we have illustrated our result by a numerical example which supports the Δ-convergence of our proposed algorithm.
