#### Abstract

A new nonlinear mapping is introduced. Hybrid projection algorithms are considered for the class of new nonlinear mappings. Strong convergence theorems are established in a real Banach space.

#### 1. Introduction

Let be a real Banach space, a nonempty subset of , and a nonlinear mapping. Denote by the set of fixed points of . Recall that is said to be nonexpansive if We remark that the mapping is said to be quasinonexpansive if and (1.1) holds for all and . is said to be asymptotically nonexpansive if there exists a sequence with as such that We remark that the mapping is said to be asymptotically quasinonexpansive if and (1.2) holds for all and . The class of asymptotically nonexpansive mappings was introduced by Goebel and Kirk [1] in 1972. They proved that if is a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of a uniformly convex Banach space , then every asymptotically nonexpansive selfmapping has a fixed point in . Further, the set of fixed points of is closed and convex. Since 1972, many authors have studied the weak and strong convergence problems of iterative algorithms for the class of mappings.

Recall that is said to be a strict pseudocontraction if there exists a constant such that We remark that the mapping is said to be a strict quasipseudocontraction if and (1.3) holds for all and .

The class of strict pseudocontractions was introduced by Browder and Petryshyn [2]. In 2007, Marino and Xu [3] proved that the fixed point set of strict pseudocontractions is closed and convex. They also proved that is demiclosed at the origin in real Hilbert spaces. A strong convergence theorem of hybrid projection algorithms for strict pseudocontractions was established; see [3] for more details.

Recall that is said to be an asymptotically strict pseudocontraction if there exist a constant and a sequence with as such that We remark that the mapping is said to be an asymptotically strict quasipseudocontraction if and (1.4) holds for all and .

The class of asymptotically strict pseudocontractions was introduced by Qihou [4] in 1996. Kim and Xu [5] proved that the fixed-point set of asymptotically strict pseudocontractions is closed and convex. They also obtained a strong convergence theorem for the class of asymptotically strict pseudocontractions by hybrid projection algorithms. To be more precise, they proved the following theorem.

Theorem KX. *Let be a closed convex subset of a Hilbert space , and let be an asymptotically -strict pseudocontraction for some . Assume that the fixed-point set of is nonempty and bounded. Let be the sequence generated by the following (CQ) algorithm:
**
where
**
Assume that the control sequence is chosen so that then converges strongly to .*

It is well known that, in an infinite dimensional Hilbert space, the normal Mann iterative algorithm has only weak convergence, in general, even for nonexpansive mappings. Hybrid projection algorithms are popular tool to prove strong convergence of iterative sequences without compactness assumptions. Recently, hybrid projection algorithms have received rapid developments; see, for example, [3, 5–24]. In this paper, we will introduce a new mapping, asymptotically strict quasi--pseudocontractions, and give a strong convergence theorem by a simple hybrid projection algorithm in a real Banach space.

#### 2. Preliminaries

Let be a Banach space with the dual space . We denote by the normalized duality mapping from to defined by where denotes the generalized duality pairing of elements between and ; see [25]. It is well known that if is strictly convex, then is single valued, and if is uniformly convex, then is uniformly continuous on bounded subsets of .

It is also well known that if is a nonempty closed convex subset of a Hilbert space and is the metric projection of onto , then is nonexpansive. This fact actually characterizes Hilbert spaces, and consequently, it is not available in more general Banach spaces. In this connection, Alber [26] recently introduced a generalized projection operator in a Banach space which is an analogue of the metric projection in Hilbert spaces.

Recall that a Banach space is said to be strictly convex if for all with and . It is said to be uniformly convex if for any two sequences in such that and . is said to have Kadec-Klee property if a sequence of satisfying that and , then . It is known that if is uniformly convex, then enjoys Kadec-Klee property; see [25, 27] for more details. Let be the unit sphere of then the Banach space is said to be smooth provided exists for each . It is also said to be uniformly smooth if the limit is attained uniformly for . It is well known that if is uniformly smooth, then is uniformly norm-to-norm continuous on each bounded subset of .

Let be a smooth Banach space. Consider the functional defined by Observe that, in a Hilbert space , (2.3) is reduced to for all . The generalized projection is a mapping that assigns to an arbitrary point the minimum point of the functional , that is, , where is the solution to the following minimization problem: The existence and uniqueness of the operator follow from the properties of the functional and the strict monotonicity of the mapping ; see, for example, [26–29]. In Hilbert spaces, . It is obvious from the definition of the function that

*Remark 2.1. *If is a reflexive, strictly convex, and smooth Banach space, then, for all , if and only if . It is sufficient to show that if , then . From (2.5), we have . This implies that . From the definition of , we see that . It follows that ; see [25, 27] for more details.

Now, we give some definitions for our main results in this paper.

Let be a closed convex subset of a real Banach space and a mapping.(1)A point in is said to be an asymptotic fixed point of [30] if contains a sequence which converges weakly to such that . The set of asymptotic fixed points of will be denoted by .(2) is said to be relatively nonexpansive [15, 31, 32] if The asymptotic behavior of a relatively nonexpansive mapping was studied in [30–32].(3) is said to be relatively asymptotically nonexpansive [6, 11] if where is a sequence such that as .(4) is said to be -nonexpansive [14, 16, 17] if (5) is said to be quasi--nonexpansive [14, 16, 17] if (6) is said to be asymptotically -nonexpansive [14] if there exists a real sequence with as such that (7) is said to be asymptotically quasi--nonexpansive [14] if there exists a real sequence with as such that (8) is said to be a strict quasi--pseudocontraction if , and there exists a constant such that We remark that is said to be a quasistrict pseudocontraction in [13]. (9) is said to be asymptotically regular on if, for any bounded subset of ,

*Remark 2.2. *The class of quasi-*ϕ*-nonexpansive mappings and the class of asymptotically quasi--nonexpansive mappings are more general than the class of relatively nonexpansive mappings and the class of relatively asymptotically nonexpansive mappings. Quasi--nonexpansive mappings and asymptotically quasi--nonexpansive mappings do not require , where denotes the asymptotic fixed-point set of .

*Remark 2.3. *In the framework of Hilbert spaces, quasi--nonexpansive mappings and asymptotically quasi--nonexpansive mappings are reduced to quasinonexpansive mappings and asymptotically quasinonexpansive mappings.

In this paper, we introduce a new nonlinear mapping: asymptotically strict quasi--pseudocontractions.

*Definition 2.4. *Recall that a mapping is said to be an asymptotically strict quasi--pseudocontraction if , and there exists a sequence with as and a constant such that

*Remark 2.5. *In the framework of Hilbert spaces, asymptotically strict quasi--pseudocontractions are asymptotically strict quasipseudocontractions.

Next, we give an example which is an asymptotically strict quasi--pseudocontraction.

Let , and let be the closed unit ball in . Define a mapping by where is a sequence of real numbers such that , , where , and . Then where is a fixed point of and is a real number. In view of , we see that is an asymptotically strict quasi--pseudocontraction.

In order to prove our main results, we also need the following lemmas.

Lemma 2.6 (see [29]). *Let be a uniformly convex and smooth Banach space, and let , be two sequences of . If and either or is bounded, then .*

Lemma 2.7 (see [26]). *Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of a smooth Banach space and then if and only if
*

Lemma 2.8 (see [26]). *Let be a reflexive, strictly convex, and smooth Banach space, a nonempty closed convex subset of , and then
*

#### 3. Main Results

Theorem 3.1. *Let be a nonempty closed and convex subset of a uniformly convex and smooth Banach space . Let be a closed and asymptotically strict quasi pseudocontraction with a sequence such that as . Assume that is uniformly asymptotically regular on and is nonempty and bounded. Let be a sequence generated in the following manner:
**
where then the sequence converges strongly to . *

*Proof. *The proof is split into five steps.*Step 1. *Show that is closed and convex.

Let be a sequence in such that as . We see that . Indeed, we obtain from the definition of that
In view of (2.6), we see that
It follows that
which implies that
from which it follows that
From Lemma 2.6, we see that as . This implies that as . From the closedness of , we obtain that . This proves the closedness of .

Next, we show the convexness of . Let and , where . We see that . Indeed, we have from the definition of that
By virtue of (2.6), we obtain that
Multiplying and on both the sides of (3.7) and (3.8), respectively, yields that
It follows that
In view of Lemma 2.6, we see that as . This implies that as . From the closedness of , we obtain that . This proves that is convex. This completes Step 1.*Step 2. *Show that is closed and convex for each .

It is not hard to see that is closed for each . Therefore, we only show that is convex for each . It is obvious that is convex. Suppose that is convex for some . Next, we show that is also convex for the same . Let and , where . It follows that
where . From the above two inequalities, we can get that
where . It follows that is closed and convex. This completes Step 2.*Step 3. *Show that for each .

It is obvious that . Suppose that for some . For any , we see that
On the other hand, we obtain from (2.6) that
Combining (3.13) with (3.14), we arrive at
which implies that . This shows that . This completes Step 3.*Step 4. *Show that the sequence is bounded.

In view of , we see that
In view of , we arrive at
It follows from Lemma 2.8 that
This implies that the sequence is bounded. It follows from (2.5) that the sequence is also bounded. This completes Step 4.*Step 5. *Show that , where , as .

Since is bounded and the space is reflexive, we may assume that weakly. Since is closed and convex, we see that . On the other hand, we see from the weakly lower semicontinuity of the norm that
which implies that as . Hence, as . In view of Kadec-Klee property of , we see that as .

Now, we are in a position to show that . Notice that . On the other hand, we see from that
from which it follows that as . In view of Lemma 2.6, we arrive at
Note that as in view of
It follows from (3.21) that
On the other hand, we have
It follows from the uniformly asymptotic regularity of and (3.23) that
that is, . From the closedness of , we obtain that .

Finally, we show that which completes the proof. Indeed, we obtain from that
In particular, we have
Taking the limit as in (3.27), we obtain that
Hence, we obtain from Lemma 2.7 that . This completes the proof.

As applications of Theorem 3.1, we have the following.

Corollary 3.2. *Let be a nonempty closed and convex subset of a uniformly convex and smooth Banach space . Let be a closed and asymptotically quasi snonexpansive mapping with a sequence such that as . Assume that is uniformly asymptotically regular on and is nonempty and bounded. Let be a sequence generated in the following manner:
**
where then the sequence converges strongly to .*

*Proof. *Putting in Theorem 3.1, we can conclude the desired conclusion easily.

Next, we give two theorems in the framework of real Hilbert spaces.

Theorem 3.3. *Let a nonempty closed and convex subset of a real Hilbert space . Let be a closed and asymptotically strict quasipseudocontraction with a sequence such that as . Assume that is uniformly asymptotically regular on and is nonempty and bounded. Let be a sequence generated by the following manner:
**
where then the sequence converges strongly to .*

Theorem 3.4. *Let be a nonempty closed and convex subset of a real Hilbert space . Let be a closed and asymptotically quasinonexpansive mapping with a sequence such that as . Assume that is uniformly asymptotically regular on and is nonempty and bounded. Let be a sequence generated by the following manner:
**
where then the sequence converges strongly to .*
