#### Abstract

In recent years, the definition of relatively nonexpansive multivalued mapping and the definition of weak relatively nonexpansive multivalued mapping have been presented and studied by many authors. In this paper, we give some results about weak relatively nonexpansive multivalued mappings and give two examples which are weak relatively nonexpansive multivalued mappings but not relatively nonexpansive multivalued mappings in Banach space and .

#### 1. Introduction

Let be a smooth Banach space and let be a nonempty closed convex subset of . We denote by the function defined by Following Alber [1], the generalized projection from onto is defined by The generalized projection from onto is well defined, single-value, and satisfies If is a Hilbert space, then and is the metric projection of onto .

In recent years, the definition of relatively nonexpansive multivalued mapping and the definition of weak relatively nonexpansive multivalued mapping have been presented and studied by many authors (see [1]). In this paper, we give some results about weak relatively nonexpansive multivalued mappings and give two examples which are weak relatively nonexpansive multivalued mappings but not relatively nonexpansive multivalued mappings in Banach space and .

*Remark 1.1. *The definition of relatively nonexpansive multivalued mapping presented in this paper and the definition of [2] are different.

Let be a closed convex subset of , and let be a multivalued mapping from into itself. We denote by the set of fixed points of , that is, A point in is said to be an asymptotic fixed point (strong asymptotic fixed point) of [3–5] if contains a sequence which converges weakly (strongly) to and there exists a sequence such that , . The set of asymptotic fixed point (the set of strong asymptotic fixed point) of will be denoted by .

A multivalued mapping of into itself is said to be relatively nonexpansive multivalued mapping (weak relatively nonexpansive multivalued mapping) if the following conditions are satisfied:(1) is nonempty;(2), ;(3).

A multivalued mapping of into itself is said to be relatively uniformly nonexpansive multivalued mapping (weak relatively uniformly nonexpansive multivalued mapping) if the following conditions are satisfied:(1) is nonempty;(2), ;(3).

Following Matsushita and Takahashi [3], a mapping of into itself is said to be relatively nonexpansive mapping if the following conditions are satisfied:(1) is nonempty;(2), ;(3). The hybrid algorithms for fixed point of relatively nonexpansive mappings and applications have been studied by many authors, for example, [3–8].

In recent years, the definition of weak relatively nonexpansive mapping has been presented and studied by many authors [6–9].

A mapping from into itself is said to be weak relatively nonexpansive mapping if(1) is nonempty;(2), ;(3).

*Remark 1.2. *In [7], the weak relatively nonexpansive mapping is also said to be relatively weak nonexpansive mapping.

*Remark 1.3. *In [8], the authors have given the definition of hemirelatively nonexpansive mapping as follows. A mapping from into itself is called hemirelatively nonexpansive if(1) is nonempty;(2), .

The following conclusion is obvious.

*Conclusion 1. A mapping is closed hemirelatively nonexpansive if and only if it is weak relatively nonexpansive.*

If is strictly convex and reflexive Banach space, and is a continuous monotone mapping with , then it is proved in [3] that , for is relatively nonexpansive. Moreover, if is relatively nonexpansive, then using the definition of one can show that is closed and convex. It is obvious that relatively nonexpansive mapping is weak relatively nonexpansive mapping. In fact, for any mapping , we have . Therefore, if is relatively nonexpansive mapping, then .

#### 2. Results for Weak Relatively Multivalued Nonexpansive Mappings in Banach Space

Theorem 2.1. *Let be a smooth Banach space and a nonempty closed convex and balanced subset of . Let be a sequence in such that converges weakly to and for all . Define a mapping as follows:
**
Then, is a weak relatively uniformly nonexpansive multivalued mapping but not relatively uniformly nonexpansive multivalued mapping.*

*Proof. *It is obvious that has a unique fixed point , that is, . Firstly, we show that is an asymptotic fixed point of . In fact that, since converges weakly to and
as , so that is an asymptotic fixed point of . Secondly, we show that has a unique strong asymptotic fixed point , so that . In fact that, for any strong convergent sequence such that and as , from the conditions of Theorem 2.1, there exist sufficiently large nature number such that , for any . Then, for , it follows from that and hence . On the other hand, observe that
Then, is a weak relatively uniformly nonexpansive multivalued mapping. On the other hand, since is an asymptotic fixed point of but not fixed point, hence is not a relatively uniformly nonexpansive multivalued mapping.

Taking any fixed number , we have the following result.

Theorem 2.2. *Let be a smooth Banach space and a nonempty closed convex and balanced subset of . Let be a sequence in such that converges weakly to and for all . Define a mapping as follows:
**
Then, is a weak relatively nonexpansive mapping but not relatively nonexpansive mapping;*

#### 3. An Example in Banach Space

In this section, we will give an example which is a weak relatively nonexpansive mapping but not a relatively nonexpansive mapping.

*Example 3.1. *Let , where
It is well known that is a Hilbert space, so that . Let be a sequence defined by
where
for all . Define a mapping as follows:
*Conclusion 2. ** converges weakly to **. *

*Proof. *For any , we have
as . That is, converges weakly to .

The following conclusion is obvious.

*Conclusion 3. ** for any **.*

It follows from Theorem 2.1 and the above two conclusions that is a weak relatively uniformly nonexpansive multivalued mapping but not relatively uniformly nonexpansive multivalued mapping.

#### 4. An Example in Banach Space

Let and Define a sequence of functions in by the following expression: for all . Firstly, we can see, for any , that where . It is well known that the above relation (4.3) is equivalent to which converges weakly to in uniformly smooth Banach space . On the other hand, for any , we have Let It is obvious that converges weakly to and Define a mapping as follows: Since (4.6) holds, by using Theorem 2.1, we know that is a weak relatively uniformly nonexpansive multivalued mapping but not relatively uniformly nonexpansive multivalued mapping.
