#### Abstract

Very recently, Ahmad and Yao (2009) introduced and considered a system of generalized resolvent equations with corresponding system of variational inclusions in uniformly smooth Banach spaces. In this paper we introduce and study a general system of generalized resolvent equations with corresponding general system of variational inclusions in uniformly smooth Banach spaces. We establish an equivalence relation between general system of generalized resolvent equations and general system of variational inclusions. The iterative algorithms for finding the approximate solutions of general system of generalized resolvent equations are proposed. The convergence criteria of approximate solutions of general system of generalized resolvent equations obtained by the proposed iterative algorithm are also presented. Our results represent the generalization, improvement, supplement, and development of Ahmad and Yao corresponding ones.

#### 1. Introduction and Preliminaries

It is well known that the theory of variational inequalities has played an important role in the investigation of a wide class of problems arising in mechanics, physics, optimization and control, nonlinear programming, elasticity, and applied sciences and so on; see, for example, [1–7] and the references therein. In recent years variational inequalities have been extended and generalized in different directions. A useful and significant generalization of variational inequalities is called mixed variational inequalities involving the nonlinear term [8], which enables us to study free, moving, obstacle, equilibrium problems arising in pure and applied sciences in a unified and general framework. Due to the presence of the nonlinear term, the projection method and its variant forms including the technique of the Wiener-Hopf equations cannot be extended to suggest the iterative methods for solving mixed variational inequalities. To overcome these drawbacks, Hassouni and Moudafi [9] introduced variational inclusions which contain mixed variational inequalities as special cases. They studied the perturbed method for solving variational inclusions. Subsequently, M. A. Noor and K. I. Noor [10] introduced and considered the resolvent equations by virtue of the resolvent operator concept and established the equivalence between the mixed variational inequalities and the resolvent equations. The technique of resolvent equations is being used to develop powerful and efficient numerical techniques for solving mixed (quasi)variational inequalities and related optimization problems. At the same time, some iterative algorithms for approximating a solution of some system of variational inequalities are also introduced and studied in Verma [11]. Pang [12], Cohen and Chaplais [13], Binachi [14], Ansari and Yao [15] considered a system of scalar variational inequalities and Pang showed that the traffic equilibrium problem, the Nash equilibrium, and the general equilibrium programming problem can be modeled as a system of variational inequalities. As generalizations of system of variational inequalities, Agarwal et al. [16] introduced a system of generalized nonlinear mixed quasi-variational inclusions and investigated the sensitivity analysis of solutions for the system of generalized mixed quasi-variational inclusions in Hilbert spaces. In 2007, Peng and Zhu [17] considered and studied a new system of generalized mixed quasi-variational inclusions with -monotone operators and Lan et al. [18] studied a new system of nonlinear -monotone multivalued variational inclusions. Furthermore, for more details in the related research work of this field, we invoke the readers to see, for instance, [19–30]. Very recently, Ahmad and Yao [31] introduced and considered a new system of variational inclusions in uniformly smooth Banach spaces, which covers the system of variational inclusions in Hilbert spaces considered by [18]. They established an equivalence relation between this system of variational inclusions and a system of generalized resolvent equations, proposed a number of iterative algorithms for this system of variational inclusions, and also gave the convergence criteria.

Let be a real Banach space with its norm the topological dual of , and the metric induced by the norm . Let (resp., ) be the family of all nonempty closed and bounded subsets (resp., all nonempty subsets) of and the Hausdorff metric on defined by where and . We write by the normalized duality mapping defined as where denotes the duality pairing between and .

The uniform convexity of a Banach space means that for any , there exists , such that for any ensure the following inequality: The function is called the modulus of convexity of .

The uniform smoothness of a Banach space means that for any given , there exists such that holds. The function is called the modulus of smoothness of .

It is well known that the Banach space is uniformly convex if and only if for all , and it is uniformly smooth if and only if . All Hilbert spaces, (or ) spaces (), and the Sobolov spaces are 2-uniformly smooth, while, for (or ) and spaces are -uniformly smooth.

Proposition 1.1 (see [15]). *Let be a uniformly smooth Banach space. Then the normalized duality mapping is single-valued, and for any there holds the following:*(i)*,*(ii)*, where .*

*Definition 1.4 (see [31]). *Let be an -accretive mapping. For any , the mapping associated with defined by

*Definition 1.5 (see [33]). *The resolvent operator is said to be a retraction if

It is well known that is a single-valued and nonexpansive mapping.

Let and be two real Banach spaces, and single-valued mappings, and and any four multivalued mappings. Let and be any nonlinear mappings, and nonlinear mappings with and , respectively. Then we consider the problem of finding such that which is called a general system of variational inclusions. In particular, if and , where and are single-valued mappings, then the general system of variational inclusions (1.14) reduces to the following system of variational inclusions which was considered by Lan et al. [18] in Hilbert spaces and studied by Ahmad and Yao [31] in Banach spaces, respectively.

In this paper we introduce and study a general system of generalized resolvent equations with corresponding general system of variational inclusions in uniformly smooth Banach spaces. Motivated and inspired by the above Proposition 1.8, we establish an equivalence relation between general system of generalized resolvent equations and general system of variational inclusions. By using Nadler [34] we propose some new iterative algorithms for finding the approximate solutions of general system of generalized resolvent equations, which include Ahmad and Yao’s corresponding algorithms as special cases to a great extent. Furthermore, the convergence criteria of approximate solutions of general system of generalized resolvent equations obtained by the proposed iterative algorithm are also presented. There is no doubt that our results represent the generalization, improvement, supplement, and development of Ahmad and Yao corresponding ones [31].
