#### Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to introduce and study a modified Halpern’s iterative scheme for solving the split feasibility problem (SFP) in the setting of infinite-dimensional Hilbert spaces. Under suitable conditions a strong convergence theorem is established. The main result presented in this paper improves and extends some recent results done by Xu (Iterative methods for the split feasibility problem in infinite-dimensional Hilbert space, Inverse Problem 26 (2010) 105018) and some others.

#### 1. Introduction

Let and be nonempty-closed convex subsets of real Hilbert spaces and , respectively. Let be a linear-bounded operator from to . The split feasibility problem (SFP) is finding a point satisfying the following property:

The SFP was introduced by Censor and Elfving [1] for modeling inverse problems which arise from phase retrievals and medical image reconstruction [2], and very well-known iterative algorithms have been invented to solve it [2].

We use to denote the solution set of SFP: and assume that the SFP (1.1) is consistent (i.e., (1.1) has a solution) so that is closed, convex, and nonempty, it is not hard to see that solves (1.1) if and only if it solves the following fixed point equation; where and are the (orthogonal) projections onto and , respectively, is any positive constant and denotes the adjoint of . Moreover, for sufficiently small , the operator which defines the fixed point equation in (1.3) is nonexpansive.

To solve the SFP (1.1), Byrne [2] proposed his algorithm (see also [3]) which generates a sequence by where with being the spectral radius of the operator .

Very recently, Xu [4] has viewed the algorithm for averaged mappings and applied Mann's algorithm to solving the SFP, and he also proved that an averaged algorithm is weakly convergent to a solution of the SFP.

In this paper, we also regard the algorithm as a fixed point algorithm for averaged mappings and try to study the SFP by the following modified Halpern's iterative scheme; where , , and are three sequences in satisfying . Furthermore, our result extends and improves the result of Xu [4] from weak to strong convergence theorems.

#### 2. Preliminaries

Throughout the paper, we adopt the following notation.

Let be a sequence and be a point in a normed space . We use and to denote strong and weak convergence to of the sequence , respectively. In addition, we use to denote the weak -limit set of the sequence ; namely,

Let be a real Hilbert space with inner product and norm , respectively, and let be a nonempty-closed convex subset of . For every point , there exists a unique nearest point in , denoted by , such that

Some important properties of projections are gathered in the following proposition.

Alternatively, is firmly nonexpansive if and only if (3) is averaged if , where and is nonexpansive. In this case, one also says that is -averaged. A firmly nonexpansive mapping is -averaged.(4) is monotone if for .

Then, .

#### 3. Main Result

Let be a nonempty closed and convex subset of a Hilbert space . For any , we define the sequence by where , , and are three sequences in and satisfy .

Theorem 3.1. Suppose that the SFP is consistent and . Let be a sequence defined as in (3.1). If the following assumptions are satisfied:(C1) but , (C2), (C3) the sums , and are finite. Then converges strongly to a solution of the SFP (1.1).

Proof. We firstly show that the sequence is bounded. For our convenience, we take . Then, for any , we have . Now, we observe that Now, we note that the condition implies that the operator is averaged. Since is firmly nonexpansive mappings and so is -average, which is -ism. Also observe that is -ism so that is -ism. Further, from the fact that is -averaged and is -averaged, we may obtain that is -averaged, where
This implies that , where for some nonexpansive mappings . Note that is also nonexpansive mappings. Hence, we have From the inequalities (3.2) and (3.4), we have Continuing inductively, we may obtain that the inequality holds for all . So, is bounded so does .
Next, we will show that . Observe that Since and are bounded, there exists such that According to Lemma 2.5 and the condition (C3), we have .
We note that Consequently, by the condition (C1) and (C2), we also have . Next, we will show that
To show this, we can choose a subsequence of such that
As is bounded, there exists a subsequence which converges weakly to . We may assume without loss of generality that . Since , we obtain as . By Lemma 2.3, we obtain that .
Now from (2.4), observe that Therefore, we compute which implies that Finally, by (3.12), (3.14), and Lemma 2.5, we conclude that converges to . This completes the proof.

Letting of iterative scheme (3.1) in Theorem 3.1, then we obtain the following corollary.

Corollary 3.2. For any , one defines the sequence by where is a sequence in . Suppose that the SFP is consistent and .
Let be defined as in (3.15). If the following assumptions are satisfied: (C1) but , (C2). Then converges to a solution of the SFP (1.1).

Remark 3.3. Theorem 3.1 and Corollary 3.2 extend and improve the result of Xu [4] from weak to strong convergence theorems by using the modified Halpern's iterative scheme.
