#### Abstract

We proved that the modified implicit Mann iteration process can be applied to approximate the fixed point of strictly hemicontractive mappings in smooth Banach spaces.

#### 1. Introduction

Let be a nonempty subset of an arbitrary Banach space and let be its dual space. The symbols and stand for the domain and the set of fixed points of (for a single-valued mapping is called a *fixed point* of iff ). We denote by the *normalized duality mapping* from to defined by
where denotes the duality pairing. In a smooth Banach space, is singlevalued (we denoted by ).

*Remark 1.1. *(1) is called uniformly smooth if is uniformly convex.

(2) In a uniformly smooth Banach space, is uniformly continuous on bounded subsets of .

Let be a mapping.

*Definition 1.2. *The mapping is called *Lipshitz* if there exists a constant such that

for all . If , then is called *nonexpansive* and if , then is called *contractive*.

*Definition 1.3 (see [1, 2]). *(1) The mapping is said to be *pseudocontractive* if
for all and .

(2) The mapping is said to be *strongly pseudocontractive* if there exists a constant such that
for all and .

(3) The mapping is said to be *local strongly pseudocontractive* if for each there exists a constant such that
for all and .

(4) The mapping is said to be *strictly hemicontractive* if and if there exists a constant such that
for all , and .

Clearly, each strongly pseudocontractive mapping is local strongly pseudocontractive.

Chidume [1] established that the Mann iteration sequence converges strongly to the unique fixed point of in case is a Lipschitz strongly pseudocontractive mapping from a bounded closed convex subset of (or ) into itself. Schu [3] generalized the result in [1] to both uniformly continuous strongly pseudocontractive mappings and real smooth Banach spaces. Park [4] extended the result in [1] to both strongly pseudocontractive mappings and certain smooth Banach spaces. Rhoades [5] proved that the Mann and Ishikawa iteration methods may exhibit different behaviors for different classes of nonlinear mappings. Afterwards, several generalizations have been made in various directions (see, e.g., [6–13]).

In 2001, Xu and Ori [14] introduced the following implicit iteration process for a finite family of nonexpansive mappings (here ) with a real sequence in and an initial point : which can be written in the following compact form: where (here the function takes values in ). Xu and Ori [14] proved the weak convergence of this process to a common fixed point of the finite family defined in a Hilbert space. They further remarked that it is yet unclear what assumptions on the mappings and/or the parameters are sufficient to guarantee the strong convergence of the sequence .

In [11], Osilike proved the following results.

Theorem 1.4. *Let be a real Banach space and let be a nonempty closed convex subset of . Let be strictly pseudocontractive mappings from to with . Let be a real sequence satisfying the following conditions: *(i)*,
*(ii)*,
*(iii)*. **From arbitrary , define the sequence by the implicit iteration process (1.8). Then converges strongly to a common fixed point of the mappings if and only if .*

*Remark 1.5. *One can easily see that for , . Hence the results of Osilike [11] are needed to be improved.

Let be a nonempty closed bounded convex subset of an arbitrary smooth Banach space and let be a continuous strictly hemicontractive mapping. We proved that the implicit Mann type iteration method converges strongly to a unique fixed point of .

The results presented in this paper extend and improve the corresponding results particularly in [1, 3, 4, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, 15].

#### 2. Preliminaries

We need the following results.

Lemma 2.1 (see [4]). *Let be a smooth Banach space. Suppose that one of the following holds: *(a)* is uniformly continuous on any bounded subsets of ,*(b)* for all in ,*(c)*for any bounded subset of , there is a function such that** for all , where satisfies .**Then for any and any bounded subset , there exists such that**
for all and .*

*Remark 2.2. *(1) If is uniformly smooth, then in Lemma 2.1 holds.

(2) If is a Hilbert space, then in Lemma 2.1 holds.

Lemma 2.3 (see [8]). *Let be a mapping with . Then is strictly hemicontractive if and only if there exists a constant such that for all and , there exists satisfying*

Lemma 2.4 (see [10]). *Let be an arbitrary normed linear space and let be a mapping. *(a)*If is a local strongly pseudocontractive mapping and , then is a singleton and is strictly hemicontractive.*(b)*If is strictly hemicontractive, then is a singleton.*

Lemma 2.5 (see [10]). *Let ,, and be nonnegative real sequences and let be a constant satisfying
**
where , for all and . Then .*

#### 3. Main Results

We now prove our main results.

Lemma 3.1. *Let be a smooth Banach space.

*(vi)* and .**For a sequence in , suppose that is the sequence generated from an arbitrary by**

*Proof. *By [2, Corollary 1], has a unique fixed point in . It follows from Lemma 2.4 that is a singleton. That is, for some .

Set . It is easy to verify that
Also
Consider

Now we put , where satisfies (2.3). Using (3.4) and Lemma 3.1, we infer that
where
Also, we have
implies
as , and consequently
as . Since is uniformly continuous on any bounded subsets of , we have
For any given and the bounded subset , there exists a satisfying (2.2). Note that (3.13) and (vi) ensure that there exists an such that
Now substituting (3.6) in (3.8) to obtain

Let , and be real sequences in satisfying the conditions (iv)–(vi).**From arbitrary , define the sequence by the implicit iteration process (3.4). Then the sequence converges strongly to a unique fixed point of .*

Suppose that be a real sequence in satisfying the conditions (v) and .**From arbitrary , define the sequence by the implicit iteration process (1.8). Then the sequence converges strongly to a unique fixed point of .*

Suppose that be a real sequence in satisfying the conditions (v) and .**From arbitrary , define the sequence by the implicit iteration process (1.8). Then the sequence converges strongly to a unique fixed point of .*

*Remark 3.6. *Similar results can be found for the iteration processes involved error terms; we omit the details.

*Remark 3.7. *Theorem 3.2 and Corollary 3.3 extend and improve Theorem 1.4 in the following directions*. *

We do not need the assumption as in Theorem 1.4.

#### 4. Applications for Multistep Implicit Iterations

Let be continuous strictly hemicontractive mappings. Let , , and , be real sequences in satisfying the conditions (iv)–(vi) and . For arbitrary , define the sequence by (4.1). Then converges strongly to the common fixed point of .*
