#### Abstract

We introduce a new two-step iterative scheme for two asymptotically nonexpansive nonself-mappings in a uniformly convex Banach space. Weak and strong convergence theorems are established for this iterative scheme in a uniformly convex Banach space. The results presented extend and improve the corresponding results of Chidume et al. (2003), Wang (2006), Shahzad (2005), and Thianwan (2008).

#### 1. Introduction

Let be a real normed space and be a nonempty subset of . A mapping is called nonexpansive if for all . A mapping is called asymptotically nonexpansive if there exists a sequence with such that for all and . is called uniformly -Lipschitzian if there exists a real number such that for all and . It is easy to see that if is an asymptotically nonexpansive, then it is uniformly -Lipschitzian with the uniform Lipschitz constant .

Iterative techniques for nonexpansive and asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in Banach spaces including Mann type and Ishikawa type iteration processes have been studied extensively by various authors; see [1–8]. However, if the domain of , , is a proper subset of (and this is the case in several applications), and maps into , then the iteration processes of Mann type and Ishikawa type studied by the authors mentioned above, and their modifications introduced may fail to be well defined.

A subset of is said to be a retract of if there exists a continuous map such that , for all . Every closed convex subset of a uniformly convex Banach space is a retract. A map is said to be a retraction if . It follows that if a map is a retraction, then for all the range of .

The concept of asymptotically nonexpansive nonself-mappings was firstly introduced by Chidume et al. [4] as the generalization of asymptotically nonexpansive self-mappings. The asymptotically nonexpansive nonself-mapping is defined as follows.

*Definition (see [4]). *Let be a nonempty subset of real normed linear space . Let be the nonexpansive retraction of onto . A nonself mapping is called asymptotically nonexpansive if there exists sequence , such that
for all and . is said to be uniformly -Lipschitzian if there exists a constant such that
for all and .

In [4], they study the following iterative sequence:

to approximate some fixed point of under suitable conditions. In [9], Wang generalized the iteration process (1.3) as follows:

where are asymptotically nonexpansive nonself-mappings and are sequences in . He studied the strong and weak convergence of the iterative scheme (1.4) under proper conditions. Meanwhile, the results of [9] generalized the results of [4].

In [10], Shahzad studied the following iterative sequence:

where is a nonexpansive nonself-mapping and is a nonempty closed convex nonexpansive retract of a real uniformly convex Banach space with nonexpansive retraction.

Recently, Thianwan [11] generalized the iteration process (1.5) as follows:

where , , ,, , are appropriate sequences in and , are bounded sequences in . He proved weak and strong convergence theorems for nonexpansive nonself-mappings in uniformly convex Banach spaces.

The purpose of this paper, motivated by the Wang [9], Thianwan [11] and some others, is to construct an iterative scheme for approximating a fixed point of asymptotically nonexpansive nonself-mappings (provided that such a fixed point exists) and to prove some strong and weak convergence theorems for such maps.

Let be a normed space, a nonempty convex subset of , the nonexpansive retraction of onto , and be two asymptotically nonexpansive nonself-mappings. Then, for given and , we define the sequence by the iterative scheme:

where , , , are appropriate sequences in satisfying and , are bounded sequences in . Clearly, the iterative scheme (1.7) is generalized by the iterative schemes (1.4) and (1.6).

Now, we recall the well-known concepts and results.

Let be a Banach space with dimension . The modulus of is the function defined by

A Banach space is uniformly convex if and only if for all .

A Banach space is said to satisfy Opial's condition [12] if for any sequence in , implies that

for all with , where denotes that converges weakly to .

The mapping with is said to satisfy condition [13] if there is a nondecreasing function with , for all such that

for all where ; (see [13, page 337]) for an example of nonexpansive mappings satisfying condition .

Two mappings are said to satisfy condition [14] if there is a nondecreasing function with , for all such that

for all where .

Note that condition reduces to condition ) when and hence is more general than the demicompactness of [13]. A mapping is called: (1) demicompact if any bounded sequence in such that converges has a convergent subsequence, (2) semicompact (or hemicompact) if any bounded sequence in such that as has a convergent subsequence. Every demicompact mapping is semicompact but the converse is not true in general.

Senter and Dotson [13] have approximated fixed points of a nonexpansive mapping by Mann iterates, whereas Maiti and Ghosh [14] and Tan and Xu [5] have approximated the fixed points using Ishikawa iterates under the condition of Senter and Dotson [13]. Tan and Xu [5] pointed out that condition is weaker than the compactness of . Khan and Takahashi [6] have studied the two mappings case for asymptotically nonexpansive mappings under the assumption that the domain of the mappings is compact. We shall use condition instead of compactness of to study the strong convergence of defined in (1.7).

In the sequel, we need the following usefull known lemmas to prove our main results.

*Remark. *If then the iterative scheme (1.7) reduces to the iterative scheme (1.4) of [9]. Moreover, the condition is weaker than both the compactness of and the semicompactness of the asymptotically nonexpansive nonself-mappings Also, the condition for all is weaker than the condition for all and some . Hence, Theorems 2.4 and 2.5 generalize Theorems 3.3 and 3.4 in [9], respectively.
