#### Abstract

We study a kind of split equality fixed point problem which is an extension of split equality problem. We propose a kind of simultaneous iterative algorithm with a way of selecting the step length which does not need any a priori information about the operator norms and prove that the sequences generated by the iterative method converge weakly to the solution of this problem. Some numerical results are shown to confirm the feasibility and efficiency of the proposed methods.

#### 1. Introduction

Let and be nonempty closed and convex subsets of the real Hilbert spaces and , respectively. The split feasibility problem is to findIt can be used in various disciplines such as image restoration and radiation therapy treatment planning [1, 2]. These applications are in finite-dimensional Hilbert spaces [3, 4]. It also can be found in an infinite-dimensional real Hilbert space [5, 6].

Recently, Moudafi [7] introduced a new split equality feasibility problem. Let , , and be real Hilbert spaces. Let and be two bounded linear operators. The split equality feasibility problem is to findwhich allows asymmetric and partial relations between the variables and . The interest is to cover many situations, for instance, applications in decomposition methods for , in game theory and in intensity-modulated radiation therapy (for short, ).

Moudafi [8] introduced the simultaneous iterative method to solve the split equality feasibility problem. Furthermore, Moudafi studied the fixed point formulation to avoid using the projection. Assume and are the sets of fixed points of and , respectively, where and are nonlinear operators such that and . So the split equality fixed point problem is to findwhere and are firmly quasi-nonexpansive mappings. In order to find the solution of the split equality problem, Che and Li [9] proposed the following iterative algorithm:and the weak convergence of the scheme (4) can also be established. Furthermore, Chang et al. [10] modified the iterative scheme (4) and provided a unified framework for solving this problem without using the projection. The framework is as follows.They got the following conclusion that the sequence generated by the above modification converges weakly to a solution of problem (3). Furthermore, some authors [11–14] studied the problems (1)–(3) in Banach space. They proposed effective algorithms and proved their convergence under some conditions.

Recently, He and Sun [15] studied the problem of split convex feasibility and established a strongly convergent alternating algorithm. They proposed the following iterative algorithm to findvia the formulawhere , , , and In some conditions such as , they proved that the sequences , , and , where .

In this article, we study the following problem of extended split equality fixed point, which is to findWhen , problem (8) is problem (3). Therefore, problem (8) is the extension of the split equality fixed point problem. We propose the simultaneous iterative algorithm for solving this problem, which avoids using the projection and the step length sequences do not depend on the operator norms and . Furthermore, we prove the sequences generated by the algorithm weakly converge to a solution of the extended split equality fixed point problem. Numerical examples show the feasibility and efficiency of this algorithm.

#### 2. Preliminaries

In these cases, we take , and choose as the stopping criterion. Figure 2 illustrates the behaviors of iterative numbers for different initial points, which reveals the stationary property of iterative numbers of the algorithm.
