#### Abstract

This paper deals with a new iterative algorithm for solving hierarchical fixed point problems of an infinite family of pseudocontractions in Hilbert spaces by , , and , where is a nonself -strictly pseudocontraction. Under certain approximate conditions, the sequence converges strongly to , which solves some variational inequality. The results here improve and extend some recent results.

#### 1. Introduction

Let be a real Hilbert space with inner product and norm . Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of . A mapping is called a contraction with coefficient if there exits a constant such that

A mapping is called nonexpansive if

A mapping is called -strictly pseudocontraction if there exits a constant such that

Write as the set of fixed points of , that is, . In 2000, Moudafi [1] introduced an iterative scheme for nonexpansive mappings where be a contraction on and the sequence started with arbitrary initial . In 2004, Xu [2] proved that the sequence generated by (1.4) converges strongly to a fixed point of under certain conditions on the parameters, which also solves the variational inequality

Recently, some authors studied the problems of fixed points of nonexpansive mappings with strongly positive operators, Lipschitizian, strongly monotone operators, and extragradient methods, and many convergence results were obtained (such as, see [3–9]).

In 2008, Yao et al. [10] introduced the following iterative scheme: where is a contraction on and is nonexpansive mapping. In 2012, Song et al. [11] analyzed the following iterative algorithm: where is a -strictly pseudocontraction, is a lipschitzian and strongly monotone operator, is a contraction, and is the metric projection from onto . Under certain conditions on the parameters, the sequence generated by (1.7) converges strongly to a fixed point of a countable family of -strictly pseudocontraction, which is the solution of some variational inequality.

On the other hand, in 2010, Yao et al. [12] introduced the iterative algorithm for solving hierarchical fixed point of nonexpansive mappings and gave the following theorem.

* Theorem YCL*

Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of a real Hilbert space . Let be a contraction with coefficient . Suppose the following conditions are satisfied:(i) and ;(ii) ;(iii) and .Then the sequence generated by
converges strongly to a point of , which is the unique solution of the variational inequality

Motivated and inspired by the iterative schemes (1.7) and (1.8), we introduce and study the hybrid iterative algorithm for solving some hierarchical fixed point problem of infinite family of strictly nonself pseudocontractions: where , , and are the same in (1.8), is a nonself -strictly pseudocontraction. Under certain conditions on the parameters, the sequence generated by (1.10) converges strongly to a common fixed point of infinite family of -strictly pseudocontractions, which solves the variational inequality So, our results extend and improve some results of other authors (such as [10–12]) from self-mappings to nonself-mappings, from nonexpansive mappings to -strictly pseudocontraction, and from one mapping to a infinite family mappings.

#### 2. Preliminaries

#### 3. Main Results

In this section, we prove some strong convergence results on the iterative algorithm for solving hierarchical fixed point problem.

Theorem 3.1. *Let be a real Hilbert space and let be a nonempty closed convex subset of . Let be a (possibly nonself) contraction with coefficient , and let be a nonexpansive mapping. Let be a countable family of -strictly (possibly nonself) pseudocontraction with such that . Let the sequence be generated by (1.10) with , in . Suppose for each , , for all and for all. Assume that the parameters satisfy the following conditions:*(i) * and ;*(ii) *;*(iii) *, , and ;*(iv) * and .**Then the sequence converges strongly to , which solves the variational inequality
*

* Proof. *The proof is divided into four steps.*Step* 1. We show that the sequences and are bounded.

For each , write and by Lemma 2.7, we have is a -strictly pseudocontraction on and , for all . Therefore, the iterative algorithm (1.10) can be written as

By condition (ii), without loss of generality, we may assume , for all . Take and we estimate . For fixed approximate , define a mapping and by Lemma 2.6, is a nonexpansive mapping and . So

Together with (3.2) and (3.3), we get

Therefore, we obtain
which gives the results that the sequence is bounded and so are , , , .*Step* 2. Now we show that as . Let
Next we estimate . From (3.2),we have
where is a constant such that

From (3.2), we also obtain
Together with (3.7) and (3.9), we have
By Lemma 2.8 and conditions (i)–(iii), we immediately get as .*Step* 3. Next we prove that as .

Let . By Lemma 2.7 and condition (iv), we get the results that is a -strictly pseudocontraction with and as , for any ,
Because , , and , so we obtain as .*Step* 4. Now we show that , where .

Since the sequence is bounded, we take subsequence of such that and . Notice that and by Lemmas 2.1 and 2.5, we have . Then

Now, by Lemma 2.2, we get . Therefore, we have

Hence it follows that

Now, by Lemma 2.8, conditions (i)–(iii), and
we have as and also solves the variational inequality
This completes the proof.

From Theorem 3.1, if we take or , for all , we get the following corollary.

Corollary 3.2. * Let be a real Hilbert space and be a nonempty closed convex subset of . Let be a (possibly nonself) contraction with coefficient and let be a countable family of -strictly (possibly nonself) pseudocontraction with and such that . Let the sequence be generated by
**
with in . Suppose for each , , for all and for all . Assume that the parameters satisfied the following conditions:*(i) * and ;*(ii) *, and ;*(iii) * and .** Then the the sequence converges strongly to , which solves the variational inequality
*

*Remark 3.3. *Theorem 3.1 extends and improves Theorem YCL in the following way. The nonexpasnsive self-mapping is extended to a infinite family of nonself -strictly pseudocontraction . If we take in Theorem 3.1, then reduces to a nonexpasnsive (possibly nonself) mapping, thus Theorem 3.1 reduces to Theorem YCL.
