**Academic Editor:**LUCAS JODAR

#### Abstract

In this paper, a hybrid iterative algorithm is proposed for finding a common element of the set of common fixed points of finite family of nonexpansive mappings and the set of common solutions of the variational inequality for an inverse strongly monotone mapping on the real Hilbert space. We establish the strong convergence of the proposed method for approximating a common element of the above defined sets under some suitable conditions. The results presented in this paper extend and improve some well-known corresponding results in the earlier and recent literature.

#### 1. Introduction

Throughout, let be a real Hilbert space whose inner product and norm are denoted as and , respectively. Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of and be the metric projection of onto . Let be a nonexpansive mapping if The set of fixed point of is denoted by .

Let be a nonlinear mapping. The classical variational inequality problem denoted by associated with the set is to find such thatThe solution set of the (2) is denoted by . The is a fundamental problem in variational analysis which has been extensively studied by many researchers in the past decades, see Yao and Chadli [1], Zeng, Schaible, and Yao [2], and the references therein.

The (2) was first discussed by Lions [3], further many different approaches are given to solve (2) in finite dimensional and infinite dimensional spaces, and the research in this direction is still continued.

Korpelevich [4] proposed a modification of an iterative algorithm for solving the (2) in Euclidean space :with , called the extragradient algorithm under certain assumptions, and it has received great attention. He proved that the sequences and converge strongly.

Takahashi and Toyoda [5] introduced an iterative algorithm for finding an element of under the assumption that is nonexpansive and is inverse strongly monotone as where is a sequence in and is a sequence in .

Iiduka and Takahashi [6] proposed another iterative algorithm as

Marino and Xu [7] introduced the following iterative algorithm based on the viscosity approximation method: where is a strongly positive bounded linear operator on . They proved that if the sequence satisfies appropriate conditions, then the sequence generated by (4) converges strongly to the unique solution of the variational inequality

Qin and Cho [8] introduced an extended composite iterative algorithm defined as follows:where is a contraction, is a nonexpansive mapping, and is a strongly positive linear bounded self-adjoint operator. Under certain appropriate assumptions on the parameters, defined by (8) converges strongly to a fixed point of , which solves the variational inequality (7).

Yamada [9] considered the hybrid steepest descent method for solving the VIP over the set of fixed points of a nonexpansive mapping. Moudafi [10] proposed the viscosity approximation method of selecting a particular fixed point of a given nonexpansive mapping which is also a solution of a variational inequality problem.

In this paper, we introduce and analyze an iterative algorithm by combining Korpelevichâ€™s extragradient method, viscosity approximation method, and hybrid steepest method. We prove that under certain conditions the proposed algorithm converges strongly to a common element of , which is a unique solution of variational inequality problem.
