Let be a real Banach space with the dual . Let be a given real number with . The generalized duality mapping from into is defined by where denotes the generalized duality pairing. In particular, is called the normalized duality mapping and for all . If is a Hilbert space, then , where is the identity mapping. The duality mapping has the following properties: (i)if is smooth, then is single-valued;(ii)if is strictly convex, then is one-to-one;(iii)if is reflexive, then is surjective;(iv)if is uniformly smooth, then is uniformly norm-to-norm continuous on each bounded subset of ;(v)if is uniformly convex, then is uniformly continuous on each bounded subsets of and is single-valued and also one-to-one.For more details, see [1].

In this paper, we firstly present the definition of duality fixed point for a mapping from into its dual as follows.

Namely, the is a duality fixed point of for any if and only if is a fixed point of (if is maximal monotone, then is, namely, the resolvent of ).

*Example 1.2. *In Hilbert space, the fixed point of an operator is always duality fixed point.

*Example 1.3. *Let be a -uniformly convex Banach space with the dual , then any element of must be the generalized duality fixed point of the generalized normalized duality mapping .
