#### Abstract

The mixed viscosity approximation is proposed for finding fixed points of nonexpansive mappings, and the strong convergence of the scheme to a fixed point of the nonexpansive mapping is proved in a real Banach space with uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm. The theorem about Halpern type approximation for nonexpansive mappings is shown also. Our theorems extend and improve the correspondingly results shown recently.

#### 1. Introduction and Preliminaries

Let be a real Banach space with norm , denote the dual space of , and denote the generalized duality pairing. Let denote the normalized duality mapping defined by

It is well known that the following results: , , ,

Let be the unit sphere of Banach space , the norm of is said to be Gâteaux differentiable if the limit

exists for each . Such an is called a smooth Banach space. The norm of Banach space is said to be uniformly Gâteaux differentiable if for each , the limit is attained uniformly for . A Banach space is said to be strictly convex if

to be uniformly convex if for all , such that

It is well known that (see [1, 2]): (1) if has a uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm, then is norm-to-weak continuous on bounded set of . (2) If a Banach space admits a sequentially continuous duality mapping from weak topology to weak star topology, then the duality mapping is single-valued. (3) Each uniformly convex Banach space is reflexive and strictly convex and has fixed point property for nonexpansive self-mappings; every uniformly smooth Banach space is a reflexive Banach space with a uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm and has fixed point property for nonexpansive self-mappings.

Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of a Banach space . If is a nonempty subset of , then a mapping is said to be a retraction if for all . A mapping is said to be a sunny if where . A subset of is said to be a sunny nonexpansive retract of if there exists a sunny nonexpansive retraction of onto . For more details, see [2]. Note that every closed convex subset of a Hilbert space is a nonexpansive retract. In the sequel, we always take to denote the sunny nonexpansive retraction of onto .

Let be a nonexpansive mapping; for a sequence and a fixed contractive mapping , the sequence , iteratively defined in by

is said to be viscosity approximation. If for a given , it is called Halpern approximation which was first introduced by Halpern [3] in 1967. Under the following assumption:

Xu [4] proved the strong convergence of to a fixed point of in Hilbert spaces and in uniformly smooth Banach spaces in 2004. In [3], Halpern pointed out that the condition (i) is necessary for the convergence of the Halpern approximation to a fixed point of . At the same time, he put forth the following open problem: *is the condition (i) a sufficient condition for the convergence of the Halpern approximation to a fixed point of **?* which was put forward by Reich in [5] also. In order to answer the open question, many authors have done extensively some works; see [6–11] and the references therein. In [7–9], the strong convergence of the Halpern approximation depends on the convergence of the path . In [6], Song got rid of the dependence on the convergence of the path , and proved the convergence of the Halpern approximation under the assumptions for and as follows:

where and is a Banach limit. Recently, many authors have studied extensively the problem of approximating a fixed point of nonexpansive nonself-mappings in a Banach space, by using the Halpern type iteration (see [12–16]) and the viscosity type iteration (see [17–23]).

In this work, on one hand, we will prove the strong convergence of the mixed viscosity iterative scheme, which is introduced as follows: for any chosen ,

where is a fixed contractive mapping, , , and are the real number sequences in , to a fixed point of the nonexpansive mapping in a real Banach space with uniformly Gâteaux differentiable norm under the following conditions:

where , is a Banach limit, and is defined by (1.9). On the other hand, we will show that the condition is not necessary for proving the strong convergence of the mixed viscosity iterative scheme. As the applications, we will show some results about mixed viscosity type approximation and Halpern type approximation for nonexpansive nonself-mappings also. Our theorems complement and generalize the corresponding results in [8, 9, 16, 24–26].

Now, we recall the following lemmas for proving our theorems firstly.

Lemma 1.2 (see [28]). * Let , and, be sequences of nonnegative real numbers such that If ,
