#### Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to prove strong convergence and* T*-stability results of some modified hybrid Kirk-Multistep iterations for contractive-type operator in normed linear spaces. Our results show through analytical and numerical approach that the modified hybrid schemes are better in terms of convergence rate than other hybrid Kirk-Multistep iterative schemes in the literature.

#### 1. Introduction

In the recent years, numerous papers have been published on the strong convergence and* T*-stability of various iterative approximations of fixed points for contractive-type operators. See [1–9]. The Picard iterative scheme defined for was the first iteration to be proved by Banach [10] for a self-map in a complete metric space satisfying (called strict contraction), for all and . Picard iteration (1) which obeys (2) is said to have a fixed point in , where is the set of all fixed points. The Picard iteration will no longer converge to a fixed point of the operator if contractive condition (2) is weaker. Hence, there is a need to consider other iterative procedures.

Mann [11] defined a more general iteration in a Banach space satisfying quasi-nonexpansive operators. For , the Mann iteration is given by where is a sequence of positive numbers in . Putting in (3) yields Picard iteration (1).

A double Mann iteration, called Ishikawa iteration, was introduced by Ishikawa [12]. It is defined for as where and are sequences of positive numbers in .

The three-step iteration, which is more general than Mann and Ishikawa iterations, was defined by Noor [13]. For , the Noor iteration is given as where , , and are sequences in with .

Rhoades and Soltuz [14] defined a multistep iteration in a normed linear space as follows. For , where and , , are sequences of positive numbers in with . Iteration (6) generalized (3), (4), and (5); for example, if in (6), we recover the form (5); if , we have (4); on putting and for each , we have (3).

Another two-step scheme, which is independent of (4), was introduced by Thianwan [15]. Let ; the sequence is defined as where and are sequences of positive numbers in with .

The three-step iteration of (7) called SP iteration was introduced by Phuengrattana and Suantai [16] and it was defined as follows. For , where with . The two-step iteration of (8) can be easily obtained when .

In [17], Gürsoy et al. defined a generalized scheme of forms (7) and (8) in a Banach space. For , where , , with .

Several results have been proved for the strong convergence of the explicit iteration as well as the SP-iterative scheme of fixed points for different types of contractive-like operators in various spaces. See [3, 6, 18, 19]. The stability results of explicit and SP-iterative schemes have been discussed in [2, 4, 9, 20, 21].

Kirk’s iterative procedure was defined by Kirk [22]. For , where is a Banach space and is a self-map of , where is a fixed integer with , for each and .

In order to reduce the cost of computations, Olatinwo [8] introduced two hybrid schemes, namely, Kirk-Mann and Kirk-Ishikawa iterative schemes in a normed linear space. For ,respectively, where and are fixed integers with and and are sequences in satisfying , , , and .

The Kirk-Noor iteration was introduced by Chugh and Kumar [23] as follows: for , where , , and are fixed integers with , and , , and are sequences in satisfying , , , , , and .

In an attempt to generalize (11) and (12), Gürsoy et al. [17] introduced the Kirk-Multistep iteration in an arbitrary Banach space . For , where are fixed integers with ; and are sequences in satisfying , , , and for each .

The Kirk-SP iteration was defined by Hussain et al. [24] as follows: for , where , , and are fixed integers with and , , and are sequences in satisfying , , , , , and . The Kirk-Thianwan iteration can be obtained if in (14).

The Kirk-Multistep-SP, which generalized both Kirk-SP and Kirk-Thianwan schemes, was introduced by Akewe et al. [1] and it was defined as follows: for , where are fixed integers with ; and are sequences in satisfying , , , and for each .

Another modified form of explicit iteration is the implicit iteration. The implicit Mann iteration and implicit Ishikawa iteration were discussed by Ćirić et al. [7] and Xue and Zhang [19], respectively. For , being a closed subset of normed linear space, the implicit Mann and implicit Ishikawa iterations are, respectively, where and are sequences in .

The implicit Noor iteration was defined by Chugh et al. [5] as follows: for where , , and are sequences in with . The implicit Noor iteration (18) is more general than (16) and (17).

The most generalized Banach operator used by several authors is the one proved by Zamfirescu [25].

Let be a complete metric space and let be a self-map of . The operator is Zamfirescu operator if for each pair of points , at least one of the following is true: where , , and are nonnegative constants satisfying , .

Berinde [2] observed that condition (20) implies where .

In [26], Rhoades used a more general contractive condition than (21): for , there exists such that Osilike [20] extended and generalized the contractive condition (22): for , there exists and such that Imoru and Olatinwo [21] employed a more general class of operators than (23) satisfying the following contractive conditions: where and is a monotone increasing function with .

#### 2. Main Results

We present our main results as follows.

Let be an arbitrary Banach space and a self-map. Let ; we define the following iteration, namely, implicit hybrid Kirk-Multistep iterative scheme, as follows: where are fixed integers with ; and are sequences in satisfying , , , and for each with .

If we let in (30), we obtain the implicit Kirk-Noor iteration defined by By setting in (30), we have the implicit Kirk-Ishikawa iteration and we can also obtain the implicit Kirk-Mann iteration when and in (30).

If in (30), then we obtain the implicit multistep iteration (19) with , .

If , , and in (30), we have the implicit Noor scheme (18) with , , and .

If , , and in (30), we have the implicit Ishikawa scheme (17) with , .

If , , and in (30), we have the implicit Mann scheme (16) with .

Throughout, the operator will be assumed as fixed and a fixed point with the condition (29) is unique.

Theorem 5. *Let be a normed linear space. Assume is self-map of satisfying the contractive condition (29) with . Then, for , the sequence defined by (30) with converges strongly to the fixed point .*

*Proof. *Let and ; then using (29) and (30) we have This implies that Also, from (30), we have This becomes From (30) again, we have which implies Continuing this way up to in (30), we have implying that Substituting (35)–(39) into (33) it becomes Let ; then Therefore, Similarly, we can easily obtain the following from (40): Applying (42) and (43) in (40) and letting for each , we have As , . Hence, .

Therefore, implicit Kirk-Multistep scheme (30) converges strongly to .

Corollary 6. *Let be a normed linear space. Assume is self-map of satisfying the contractive condition (29) with . Then, for , the implicit Kirk-Noor, the implicit Kirk-Ishikawa, and the implicit Kirk-Mann schemes with converge strongly to the fixed point .*

*Remark 7. *The strong convergence results for implicit Noor, implicit Ishikawa, and implicit Mann schemes are obvious from Theorem 5.

Theorem 8. *Let be a normed linear space and is a self-map of satisfying contractive condition (29) with . Then, for and , the sequence defined by (30) is T-stable.*

*Proof. *Let be an arbitrary sequence and let , where Suppose and ; by (29) we have This implies that From inequalities (42) and (43), one can easily obtain the following: Then, inequality (47) becomes Letting and by Lemma 3, we have Conversely, suppose for ; then Since , then .

Therefore, iterative scheme (30) is* T*-stable.

Corollary 9. *Let be a normed linear space and is a self-map of satisfying the contractive condition (29) with . Then, for and , the sequence defined by implicit Kirk-Mann, implicit Kirk-Ishikawa, and implicit Kirk-Noor schemes are T-stable.*

*Remark 10. *The stability results for implicit Mann, implicit Ishikawa, and implicit Noor schemes with contractive condition (29) are special cases of Corollary 9.
