Let *E* be a real reflexive Banach space with a uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm. Let *K* be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of *E,* and every nonempty closed convex bounded subset of *K* has the fixed point property for non-expansive self-mappings. Let a contractive mapping and be a uniformly continuous pseudocontractive mapping with . Let be a sequence satisfying the following conditions: (i) ; (ii) . Define the sequence in *K* by , , for all . Under some appropriate assumptions, we prove that the sequence converges strongly to a fixed point which is the unique solution of the following variational inequality: , for all .

#### 1. Introduction

Let be a real Banach space with dual . We denote by the normalized duality mapping from to defined by where denotes the generalized duality pairing.

It is well known that, if is smooth, then is single-valued. In the sequel, we will denote the single-valued normalized duality mapping by . We use to denote the domain and range of , respectively.

An operator is called pseudocontractive if there exists such that

A point is a fixed point of provided . Denote by the set of fixed points of , that is, .

Within the past 40 years or so, many authors have been devoted to the iterative construction of fixed points of pseudocontractive mappings (see [1–10]).

In 1974, Ishikawa [11] introduced an iterative scheme to approximate the fixed points of Lipschitzian pseudocontractive mappings and proved the following result.

Theorem 1.1 (see [11]). *If is a compact convex subset of a Hilbert space is a Lipschitzian pseudocontractive mapping. Define the sequence in by
**
where are sequences of positive numbers satisfying the conditions ** , **, **. ** Then, the sequence converges strongly to a fixed point of .*

In connection with the iterative approximation of fixed points of pseudo-contractions, in 2001, Chidume and Mutangadura [12] provided an example of a Lipschitz pseudocontractive mapping with a unique fixed point for which the Mann iterative algorithm failed to converge. Chidume and Zegeye [13] introduced a new iterative scheme for approximating the fixed points of pseudocontractive mappings.

Theorem 1.2 (see [13]). *Let be a real reflexive Banach space with a uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm. Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of . Let be a -Lipschitzian pseudocontractive mapping such that . Suppose that every nonempty closed convex bounded subset of has the fixed point property for nonexpansive self-mappings. Let and be two sequences in satisfying the following conditions: ** ,**, **. ** For given arbitrarily, let the sequence be defined iteratively by
**
Then, the sequence defined by (1.4) converges strongly to a fixed point of .*

Prototypes for the iteration parameters are, for example, and for and . But we observe that the canonical choices of and are impossible. This bring us a question.

*Question 1. *Under what conditions, and are sufficient to guarantee the strong convergence of the iterative scheme (1.4) to a fixed point of ?

In this paper, we explore an iterative scheme to approximate the fixed points of pseudocontractive mappings and prove that, under some appropriate assumptions, the proposed iterative scheme converges strongly to a fixed point of , which solves some variational inequality. Our results improve and extend many results given in the literature.

#### 2. Preliminaries

For more details on Banach limits, we refer readers to [14]. We need the following lemmas for proving our main results.

Lemma 2.1 (see [15]). *Let be a Banach space. Suppose that is a nonempty closed convex subset of and is a continuous pseudocontractive mapping satisfying the weakly inward condition: is the closure of for each , where . Then, for each , there exists a unique continuous path for all , satisfying the following equation
**
Furthermore, if is a reflexive Banach space with a uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm and every nonempty closed convex bounded subset of has the fixed point property for nonexpansive self-mappings, then, as , converges strongly to a fixed point of .*

Lemma 2.2 (see [16]). *
(1) If is smooth Banach space, then the duality mapping is single valued and strong-weak* continuous.**
(2) If is a Banach space with a uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm, then the duality mapping is single valued and norm to weak star uniformly continuous on bounded sets of .*

Lemma 2.3 (see [17]). *Let be a sequence of nonnegative real numbers satisfying for all , where , and two sequences of real numbers such that and . Then converges to zero as .*

#### 3. Main Results

Now, we are ready to give our main results in this paper.

Theorem 3.1. *Let be a real reflexive Banach space with a uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm. Let be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of , and every nonempty closed convex bounded subset of has the fixed point property for nonexpansive self-mappings. Let a contractive mapping and be a uniformly continuous pseudocontractive mapping with . Let be a sequence satisfying the conditions: ** , **. ** Define the sequence in by
**
If , then the sequence converges strongly to a fixed point , which is the unique solution of the following variational inequality:
*

*Proof. *Take , and let . Then, we have
From (3.1), we obtain
By (3.4), we have
Combining (3.3) and (3.5), we have

Next, we prove that . Indeed, taking in Lemma 2.1, we have
and, hence,
Therefore, we have

From Lemma 2.1, we know as . Since the duality mapping is norm to weak star uniformly continuous from Lemma 2.2, we have
From (3.6), we have
where is a constant such that
It follows that
where
Note that
By the uniformly continuity of , we have
Hence, it is clear that and .

Finally, applying Lemma 2.3 to (3.14), we can conclude that . This completes the proof.

From Theorem 3.1, we can prove the following corollary.

Corollary 3.2. *Let be a real reflexive Banach space with a uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm. Let be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of , and every nonempty closed convex bounded subset of has the fixed point property for nonexpansive self-mappings. Let be a uniformly continuous pseudocontractive mapping with . Let be a sequence satisfying the conditions: ** , **. ** Define the sequence in by

Theorem 3.3. *Let be a uniformly smooth Banach space and a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of . Let be a contractive mapping and a uniformly continuous pseudocontractive mapping with . Let be a sequence satisfying the conditions: ** , **. ** If , then the sequence defined by (3.1) converges strongly to a fixed point , which is the unique solution of the following variational inequality:
*

*Proof. *Since every uniformly smooth Banach space is reflexive and whose norm is uniformly Gâteaux differentiable, at the same time, every closed convex and bounded subset of has the fixed point property for nonexpansive mappings. Hence, from Theorem 3.1, we can obtain the result. This completes the proof.

From Theorem 3.3, we can prove the following corollary.

Corollary 3.4. *Let be a uniformly smooth Banach space and a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of . Let be a uniformly continuous pseudocontractive mapping with . Let be a sequence satisfying the conditions: ** , **. ** Define the sequence in by

Theorem 3.5. *Let be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of a real reflexive Banach space with a uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm. Let a contractive mapping and be a uniformly continuous pseudocontractive mapping. Let be a sequence satisfying the conditions: ** , **. ** If , where is defined as (3.22) below, then the sequence defined by (3.1) converges strongly to a fixed point , which is the unique solution of the following variational inequality:
*

*Proof. *First, we note that the sequence is bounded. Now, if we define , then is convex and continuous. Also, we can easily prove that as . Since is reflexive, there exists such that . So the set
Clearly, is closed convex subset of .

Now, we can take and . By the convexity of , we have that . It follows that
By Lemma 2.4, we have
Taking the Banach limit in (3.24), we have
This implies
Therefore, it follows from (3.23) and (3.26) that
Since the normalized duality mapping is single valued and norm-weak* uniformly continuous on bounded subset of , we have
This implies that, for any , there exists such that, for all and ,
Taking the Banach limit and noting that (3.27), we have
By the arbitrariness of , we obtain
At the same time, we note that
Since are bounded and the duality mapping is single valued and norm topology to weak star topology uniformly continuous on bounded sets in Banach space with a uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm, it follows that
From (3.31), (3.33), and Lemma 2.5, we conclude that

Finally, by the similar arguments as that the proof in Theorem 3.1, it is easy prove that the sequence converges to a fixed point of . This completes the proof.

From Theorem 3.5, we can easily to prove the following result.

Corollary 3.6. *Let be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of a real reflexive Banach space with a uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm. Let be a contractive mapping and a uniformly continuous pseudocontractive mapping. Let be a sequence satisfying the conditions: ** , **. ** Define the sequence in by
**
If , where is defined as (3.22), then the sequence defined by (3.35) converges strongly to a fixed point .*
