#### Abstract

We introduce a new generalized resolvent in a Banach space and discuss some of its properties. Using these properties, we obtain an iterative scheme for finding a point which is a fixed point of relatively weak nonexpansive mapping and a zero of monotone mapping. Furthermore, strong convergence of the scheme to a point which is a fixed point of relatively weak nonexpansive mapping and a zero of monotone mapping is proved.

#### 1. Preliminaries

Let be a real Banach space with dual . We denote by the normalized duality mapping from into , defined by where denotes the generalized duality pairing. It is well known that if is strictly convex, then is single valued and if is uniformly smooth, then is uniformly continuous on bounded subsets of . Moreover, if is a reflexive and strictly convex Banach space with a strictly convex dual, then is single valued, one-to-one, and surjective, and it is the duality mapping from into and thus and (see [1]). We note that, in a Hilbert space , is the identity mapping.

Let be a smooth, reflexive, and strictly convex Banach space. We define the function by for all . Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of . For an arbitrary point of , consider the set . In 1996, Alber [2] introduced generalized projection from Hilbert space to uniformly convex and uniformly smooth Banach space: Such a mapping is called the generalized projection.

Applying the definitions of and , a functional is defined by the following formula:

In the following, we will make use of the following lemmas.

The set of strong asymptotic fixed points of will be denoted by . A mapping from into itself is called weak relatively nonexpansive if and for all and (see [5]).**Let be a smooth Banach space and let be a nonempty closed convex subset of .

In this paper, motivated by Alber [2], Ibaraki and Takahashi [6], and Zegeye and Shahzad [7], we first introduce the generalized resolvent and discuss its properties. Secondly, we give an iterative scheme for finding a point which is a fixed point of relatively weak nonexpansive mapping and a zero of monotone mapping. Finally, we show its convergence.

#### 2. The Generalized Resolvent and Some of Its Properties

Let be a reflexive and smooth Banach space and let be a maximal monotone operator. For each and , consider the set: If , , , , then we have from the monotonicity of that and hence So, we obtain and hence This implies . Then, consists of one point. We also denote the domain and the range of by and , respectively, where is the identity on . Such a is called the generalized resolvent of and is denoted by We get some properties of and .

Proposition 5. *Let be a reflexive and strictly convex Banach space with a Fréchet differentiable norm and let be a maximal monotone operator with . Then, the following hold:*(1)* for each *;
(2)* for each **, where ** is the set of fixed points of *;
(3)* is closed;*(4)* is generalized nonexpansive for each *.

*Proof. *(1) From the maximality of , we have
Hence, for each , there exists such that . Since is reflexive and strictly convex, is bijective. Therefore, there exists such that . Therefore, we have
This implies . is clear. So, we have .

(2) Let . Then, we have

(3) Let with . From , we have . Since is norm to norm continuous and is closed, we have that . This implies . That is, is closed.

(4) Let , , and . By Definition (2) and calculating that

*Using Theorem 6, we get the following result.*

Theorem 7. *Let be a uniformly convex Banach space with a Fréchet differentiable norm and let be a maximal monotone operator with . Then the following hold:*(1)*for each , exists and belongs to ;*(2)*if for each , then is a sunny generalized nonexpansive retraction of onto .*

#### 3. An Iterative Scheme for Finding a Zero Point of a Monotone Mapping by

Now we construct an iterative scheme which converges strongly to a point which is a fixed point of relatively weak nonexpansive mapping and a zero of monotone mapping.

Theorem 8. *Let be a uniformly convex Banach space and uniformly smooth Banach space. Let be a maximal monotone operator. Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of . Let be a relatively weak nonexpansive mapping with . Assume that is a sequence of real numbers. Then, the sequence generated by**
converges strongly to , where is the generalized projection from onto .*

*Proof. *We first show that and are closed and convex for each . From the definition of and , it is obvious that is closed and is closed and convex for each . We show that is convex. Since
is equivalent to
and is equivalent to
it follows that is convex.

Next, we show that for each . Let ; then relatively weak nonexpansiveness of and generalized nonexpansiveness of give that
Thus, we give that . On the other hand, it is clear that . Thus, and, therefore, is well defined. Suppose that and is well defined. Then, the methods in (40) imply that and . Moreover, it follows from Lemma 3 that
which implies that . Hence and is well defined. Then, by induction, and the sequence generated by (36) is well defined for each .

Now, we show that is a bounded sequence and converges to a point of . Let . Since and for all , we have
for all . Therefore, is nondecreasing. In addition, it follows from definition of and Lemma 3 that . Therefore, by Lemma 2 we have
for each for all . Therefore, is bounded. This together with (40) implies that the limit of exists. Put . From Lemma 2, we have, for any positive integer , that
for all . The existence of implies that . Thus, Lemma 4 implies that
and hence is a Cauchy sequence. Therefore, there exists a point such that as . Since , we have . Thus by Lemma 4 and (45) we get that
and hence as . Furthermore, since is uniformly continuous on bounded sets, we have
which implies that
Since is also uniformly norm-continuous on bounded sets, we obtain
Therefore, from (46), (49), and , we obtain that . This together with the fact that (and hence ) converges strongly to and the definition of relatively weak nonexpansive mapping implies that . Furthermore, from (36) and (47), we have that as . Thus, from , we obtain that .

Finally, we show that as . From Lemma 2, we have
On the other hand, since and for all , we have by Lemma 2 that
Moreover, by the definition of , we get that
By combining (50) and (52), we obtain that . Therefore, it follows from the uniqueness of that . This completes the proof.

*Remark 9. *If in Theorem 8 we have that , the identity map on , then we get the following.

Corollary 10. *Let be a uniformly convex Banach space and uniformly smooth Banach space. Let be a maximal monotone operator. Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of with . Assume that is a sequence of real numbers. Then, the sequence generated by
