# A Note on Common Fixed Point Results in Uniformly Convex Hyperbolic Spaces

**Academic Editor:**Sujit Samanta

#### Abstract

It is shown that the notion of mappings satisfying condition introduced by Akkasriworn et al. (2012) is weaker than the notion of asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive mappings in the sense of Qihou (2001) and is weaker than the notion of pointwise asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in the sense of Kirk and Xu (2008). We also obtain a common fixed point for a commuting pair of a mapping satisfying condition and a multivalued mapping satisfying condition for some . Our results properly contain the results of Abkar and Eslamian (2012), Akkasriworn et al. (2012), and many others.

#### 1. Introduction

Let be a metric space. A mapping is said to be *nonexpansive* if

A point is called a *fixed point* of if . We shall denote by the set of fixed points of . The mapping is said to be *quasi-nonexpansive* if and

A single-valued mapping and a multivalued mapping are said to be *commute* if

The first result concerning to the existence of common fixed points for a commuting pair of a single-valued quasi-nonexpansive mapping and a multivalued nonexpansive mapping was established in Hilbert spaces by Itoh and Takahashi [1]. Since then the common fixed point theory for commuting pairs of single-valued and multivalued mappings has been rapidly developed and many of papers have appeared (see, e.g., [2–11] and the references therein).

In 2008, Suzuki [12] introduced a condition on mappings, which is weaker than nonexpansiveness and stronger than quasi-nonexpansiveness and called it condition . Later on, García-Falset et al. [13] introduced two generalizations of condition , namely, conditions and , and studied the existence of fixed points for mappings satisfying such conditions. These conditions were extended to the multivalued case by Abkar and Eslamian [11] and Espínola et al. [14]. However, these conditions still lie between nonexpansiveness and quasi-nonexpansiveness in both single-valued and multivalued cases. On the other hand, Qihou [15] introduced the notion of asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive mappings and Kirk and Xu [16] introduced the notion of pointwise asymptotically nonexpansive mappings. Both of them generalize the notion of asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in the sense of Goebel and Kirk [17].

Recently, Abkar and Eslamian [18] studied the existence of common fixed points for three different classes of generalized nonexpansive mappings including a quasi-nonexpansive single-valued mapping, a pointwise asymptotically nonexpansive single-valued mapping, and a multivalued mapping satisfying conditions and for some . Very recently, Akkasriworn et al. [19] introduced a condition on mappings, namely, condition , which is weaker than both quasi-nonexpansiveness and asymptotically nonexpansiveness and proved the existence of common fixed points for a commuting pair of a single-valued mapping satisfying condition and a multivalued mapping satisfying conditions and for some .

In this note, motivated by the above results, we prove that the condition is even weaker than asymptotically quasi-nonexpansiveness and is weaker than pointwise asymptotically nonexpansiveness in the setting of uniformly convex hyperbolic spaces. Moreover, we also obtain a common fixed point theorem with some weaker assumptions.

#### 2. Preliminaries

*Definition 1 (see [20]). *A *hyperbolic space* is a triple where is a metric space and is such that for all and , we have(W1);
(W2);
(W3);
(W4).

If , and , then we use the notation for . It is easy to see that for any , and , we have

We shall denote by the set . A nonempty subset of is said to be *convex* if for all .

*Definition 2 (see [20]). *The hyperbolic space is called *uniformly convex* if for any , and there exists a such that for all with , , and , it is the case that

A function providing such a for given and is called *a modulus of uniform convexity. *

Obviously, uniformly convex Banach spaces are uniformly convex hyperbolic spaces. CAT(0) spaces are also uniformly convex hyperbolic spaces, see [20, Proposition 8]. From now on, stands for a complete uniformly convex hyperbolic space having a modulus of uniform convexity such that for a fixed , is a constant function on .

The following lemma can be found in [21].

Lemma 3. *Let be a nonempty closed convex subset of and . Then there exists a unique point such that
*

The following lemma, which is proved by Khamsi and Khan [22], is also needed.

Lemma 4. *Fix . For each and for each , set
**
where the infimum is taken over all such that , and . Then for any and . Moreover, for each fixed , we have*(i)*;
*(ii)* is a nondecreasing function of ;*(iii)*If , then .*

We shall denote by the family of nonempty subsets of , by the family of nonempty closed and bounded subsets of , by the family of nonempty compact subsets of , and by the family of nonempty compact convex subsets of . Let be the Hausdorff distance on , that is,

*Definition 5. *A multivalued mapping is said to satisfy (i)*condition * if there exists such that for each ,
(ii)*condition * if there exists such that for each ,

We say that is *strongly demiclosed* if for every sequence in which converges to and such that , we have .

We note that for every continuous mapping , is strongly demiclosed but the converse is not true (see [13, Example 5]). Notice also that if satisfies condition , then is strongly demiclosed (see [23, Proposition 2.10]).

*Definition 6. *A single-valued mapping is said to(i) satisfy *condition * if Fix is nonempty closed and convex, and for each and any closed convex subset with , the nearest point of in must be contained in Fix;(ii) be *asymptotically nonexpansive* if there exists a sequence of positive numbers with and such that
(iii) be *pointwise asymptotically nonexpansive* if there exists a sequence of mappings with and such that
(iv) be *asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive* if Fix is nonempty and there exists a sequence of positive numbers with and such that

#### 3. Main Results

We begin this section by proving that every quasi-nonexpansive mapping satisfies condition .

Proposition 7. *Let be a nonempty convex subset of . If is a quasi-nonexpansive mapping, then satisfies condition .*

*Proof. *By [24, Theorem 4.2], is closed and convex. Let and be a closed convex subset of with . Let be such that . Since is quasi-nonexpansive, . By the uniqueness of , we have . Therefore satisfies condition .

The following two propositions show that the notion of mappings satisfying condition is weaker than the notion of pointwise asymptotically nonexpansive mappings and weaker than the notion of asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive continuous mappings. For a mapping that satisfies condition but is neither pointwise asymptotically nonexpansive nor asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive, see [19].

Proposition 8. *Let be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of . If is a pointwise asymptotically nonexpansive mapping, then satisfies condition .*

*Proof. *By [9, Theorem 3.11], is nonempty closed and convex. Since is bounded, there exists such that for all . We now let and be a closed convex subset of with . Let be such that . Since is uniformly convex, then by Lemma 4 for each integers , we have

Since and is convex, we have

This, together with (14), we get

Consequently, . By Lemma 4, . Hence is a Cauchy sequence. Let . Now, letting in (14), we get that

Since is continuous,

By (17), (18), and the uniqueness of , we get .

Proposition 9. *Let be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of . If is continuous and asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive, then satisfies condition .*

* Proof. *Since is continuous, is closed. Next, we show that is convex. Let be two different points in and let . It is enough to show that . Since is asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive,

Let . Then, for each there exists such that if then

We will show that the diameters of the sets tend to as tends to and so , which proves that . Let , and . Then as . Assume that and let . Thus, for each there exist such that . Since , and , we get that for each ,

By letting , we get that , which is a contradiction. Hence is convex. The proof of the remaining part closely follows the proof of Proposition 8, upon replacing with .

*Remark 10. *Continuity seems essential to the proof of Proposition 9. We do not have an example to show that it is necessary.

The following result is a consequence of [23, Theorem 3.2].

Theorem 11. *Let be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of . Suppose that satisfies condition and is strongly demiclosed. Then has a fixed point. *

Now, we are ready to prove our main theorem.

Theorem 12. *Let be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of and be a mapping satisfying condition . Suppose that satisfies condition and is strongly demiclosed. If and commute, then there exists such that .*

*Proof. *This proof is patterned after the proof of [25, Theorem 3.1]. Commutative of and implies that for all . Then we have Fix for all since satisfies condition . Therefore, the mapping is well defined. Since is strongly demiclosed, then is strongly demiclosed. Next, we show that satisfies condition . Let be such that

This implies that and hence since satisfies condition . We claim that for all . Let be the point in such that . Again by the condition , we have . This shows that . Now, for each satisfying (22), we have

By Theorem 11, there exists such that . As a result, we have .

As consequences of Proposition 7, Proposition 8, and Theorem 12, we obtain the following.

Corollary 13 (see [18, Theorem 3.2]). *Let be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space . Let be a pointwise asymptotically nonexpansive mapping, and a quasi-nonexpansive mapping, and let be a multivalued mapping satisfying conditions and for some . If , and are pairwise commuting, then there exists a point such that .*

Corollary 14 (see [19, Theorem 3.3]). *Let be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of a uniformly convex Banach space . Let be a mapping satisfying condition , and let be a multivalued mapping satisfying conditions and for some . If and commute, then there exists such that .*

Finally, we show that the strongly demiclosedness of in Theorem 12 cannot be removed.

*Example 15. *Put and . Let be the identity mapping on and let be the mapping on defined by

It is easy to see that and commute. In [13], the authors prove that either

We now let , then either

This implies that satisfies condition () for all . Let , then is an approximate fixed point sequence for which converges to . But is not a fixed point of . This shows that is not strongly demiclosed. Obviously, does not have a fixed point.
