## Abstract

We study the strong convergence of an iterative method for inverse strongly accretive operators in the framework of Banach spaces. Our results improve and extend the corresponding results announced by many others.

One can see that the variational inequality problem (1.1) is equivalent to some fixed-point problem. The element is a solution of the variational inequality (1.1) if and only if satisfies the relation where is a constant.

To find a solution of the variational inequality for an inverse strongly monotone operator, Iiduka et al. [2] proved the following weak convergence theorem.

In this paper, motivated by Aoyama et al. [6], Iiduka et al. [2], Takahahsi and Toyoda [4], we introduce an iterative method to approximate a solution of variational inequality (1.15) for an -inverse strongly accretive operators. Strong convergence theorems are obtained in the framework of Banach spaces under appropriate conditions on parameters.

We also need the following lemmas for proof of our main results.

The following lemma is characterized by the set of solutions of variational inequality (1.15) by using sunny nonexpansive retractions.

Let be a sunny nonexpansive retraction from onto , an arbitrarily fixed point, and an -inverse strongly accretive operator of into such that . Let and be two sequences in and let a real number sequence in for some satisfying the following conditions:

Proof.

Applying Lemma 1.6 to (2.22), we can conclude the desired conclusion. This completes the proof.
