#### 1. Introduction

Let be a nonempty subset of a real Banach space and let be a mapping. Let be the set of fixed points of .

A mapping is called *nonexpansive *if
for all . Similarly, is called *asymptotically nonexpansive* if there exists a sequence with such that
for all and . The mapping is called *uniformly L-Lipschitzian *if there exists a positive constant such that
for all and .

It is easy to see that if is asymptotically nonexpansive, then it is uniformly -Lipschitzian with the uniform Lipschitz constant .

The class of asymptotically nonexpansive mappings which is an important generalization of the class nonexpansive maps was introduced by Goebel and Kirk [1]. They proved that every asymptotically nonexpansive self-mapping of a nonempty closed convex bounded subset of a uniformly convex Banach space has a fixed point.

The main tool for approximation of fixed points of generalizations of nonexpansive mappings remains iterative technique. Iterative techniques for nonexpansive self-mappings in Banach spaces including Mann type (one-step), Ishikawa type (two-step), and three-step iteration processes have been studied extensively by various authors; see, for example, ([2–8]).

Recently, Chidume and Ali [9] defined (4) and constructed the sequence for the approximation of common fixed points of finite families of asymptotically nonexpansive mappings. Yıldırım and Özdemir [10] introduced an iteration scheme for approximating common fixed points of a finite family of asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive self-mappings and proved some strong and weak convergence theorems for such mappings in uniformly convex Banach spaces. Quan et al. [11] studied sufficient and necessary conditions for finite step iterative schemes with mean errors for a finite family of asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive mappings in Banach spaces to converge to a common fixed point. Peng [12] proved the convergence of finite step iterative schemes with mean errors for asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in Banach spaces. More recently Kızıltunç and Temir [13] introduced and studied a new iteration process for a finite family of nonself asymptotically nonexpansive mappings with errors in Banach spaces.

In [9], the authors introduced an iterative process for a finite family of asymptotically nonexpansive mappings as follows: where are asymptotically nonexpansive mappings and for .

Inspired and motivated by these facts, it is our purpose in this paper to construct an iteration scheme for approximating common fixed points of finite family of asymptotically nonexpansive mappings and study weak and some strong convergence theorems for such mappings in real Banach spaces.

Let be a real Banach space and a nonempty closed convex subset of . Let be asymptotically nonexpansive mappings with sequence , , and . Suppose that , , are appropriate sequences in and , are bounded sequences in such that for . Let be defined by

#### 2. Preliminaries

A mapping is said to be *semicompact* if, for any bounded sequence in such that as , there exists a subsequence say of such that converges strongly to some in . is said to be *completely continuous* if for every bounded sequence in , there exists a subsequence say of such that the sequence converges strongly to some element of the range of .

It follows from (18) and (19) that
We first obtain that
Now if and , there exist a positive integer and such that , for all . This implies by (21) that
It follows from (22) that for ,

If one of ’s is completely continuous, say , since is bounded, there exists a subsequence of such that converges strongly to . By Theorem 7, . It follows from continuity of that
Using as , , and Lemma 4, we obtain that . Also using as and Lemma 6, we obtain that . This completes the proof.

Next, we prove a strong convergence theorem for asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in a uniformly convex Banach space satisfying condition (A).

Theorem 9. *Let be a real uniformly convex Banach space and a nonempty closed convex subset of . Let be m asymptotically nonexpansive mappings with sequence , and satisfying the condition (A). Suppose that , , are appropriate sequences in and , are bounded sequences in such that for . Suppose that and for . Then the sequence generated by (5) converges strongly to an element of .*

*Proof. *Since exists for all by Lemma 6, then, for any such that

Now, we prove the weak convergence of iteration (5) for a family of asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in a uniformly convex Banach space.

Theorem 10. *Let be a uniformly convex Banach space satisfying Opial’s condition, and let be a nonempty closed convex subset of . Let be asymptotically nonexpansive mappings with sequence , and let the sequences , , and , be the same as in Theorem 7.

By Theorem 7, , and is demiclosed at 0 for . So we obtain for . Finally, we prove that converges to . Suppose , where denotes the weak limit set of . Let and be two subsequences of which converge weakly to and , respectively. Opial’s condition ensures that is a singleton set. It follows that . Thus converges weakly to an element of . This completes the proof.
