## 1 Introduction

Splitting methods have recently received much attention due to the fact that many nonlinear problems arising in applied areas such as image recovery, signal processing, and machine learning are mathematically modeled as a nonlinear operator equation, and this operator is decomposed as the sum of two nonlinear operators. Study of fixed (zero) point approximation algorithms for computing fixed (zero) points constitutes now a topic of intensive research efforts. Many well-known problems can be studied by using algorithms which are iterative in their nature. As an example, in computer tomography with limited data, each piece of information implies the existence of a convex set in which the required solution lies. The problem of finding a point in the intersection of these convex sets is then of crucial interest, and it cannot be usually solved directly. Therefore, an iterative algorithm must be used to approximate such a point. The well-known convex feasibility problem which captures applications in various disciplines such as image restoration and radiation therapy treatment planning is to find a point in the intersection of common fixed (zero) point sets of a family of nonlinear mappings; see, for example, [1–16].

In this paper, we will investigate the problem of finding a common solution to inclusion problems and fixed point problems based on an iterative algorithm. Strong convergence of the proposed iterative algorithm has been obtained in the framework of Hilbert spaces.

The organization of this paper is as follows. In Section 2, we provide some necessary preliminaries. In Section 3, an iterative algorithm is proposed and analyzed. Some subresults of the main results are also discussed in this section.

## 2 Preliminaries

From now on, we always assume that *H* is a real Hilbert space with the inner product $\u3008\cdot ,\cdot \u3009$ and the norm $\parallel \cdot \parallel $, respectively. Let *C* be a nonempty closed convex subset of *H*.

Let $S:C\to C$ be a mapping. $F(S)$ stands for the fixed point set of *S*; that is, $F(S):=\{x\in C:x=Sx\}$.

*S*is said to be nonexpansive iff

*S*is said to be asymptotically nonexpansive iff there exists a sequence $\{{k}_{n}\}\subset [1,\mathrm{\infty})$ with ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}{k}_{n}=1$ such that

*S*is said to be strictly pseudocontractive iff there exits a positive constant

*κ*such that

*S*is said to be asymptotically strictly pseudocontractive iff there exits a positive constant

*κ*and a sequence $\{{k}_{n}\}\subset [1,\mathrm{\infty})$ with ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}{k}_{n}=1$ such that

*A*is said to be monotone iff

*A*is said to be inverse-strongly monotone iff there exists a constant $\alpha >0$ such that

For such a case, *A* is also said to be *α*-inverse-strongly monotone. It is not hard to see that inverse-strongly monotone mappings are Lipschitz continuous.

A multivalued operator $T:H\to {2}^{H}$ with the domain $D(T)=\{x\in H:Tx\ne \mathrm{\varnothing}\}$ and the range $R(T)=\{Tx:x\in D(T)\}$ is said to be monotone if for ${x}_{1}\in D(T)$, ${x}_{2}\in D(T)$, ${y}_{1}\in T{x}_{1}$ and ${y}_{2}\in T{x}_{2}$, we have $\u3008{x}_{1}-{x}_{2},{y}_{1}-{y}_{2}\u3009\ge 0$. A monotone operator *T* is said to be maximal if its graph $G(T)=\{(x,y):y\in Tx\}$ is not properly contained in the graph of any other monotone operator. Let *I* denote the identity operator on *H* and $T:H\to {2}^{H}$ be a maximal monotone operator. Then we can define, for each $\lambda >0$, a nonexpansive single-valued mapping ${J}_{\lambda}:H\to H$ by ${J}_{\lambda}={(I+\lambda T)}^{-1}$. It is called the *resolvent* of *T*. We know that ${T}^{-1}0=F({J}_{\lambda})$ for all $\lambda >0$ and ${J}_{\lambda}$ is firmly nonexpansive; see [17–23] and the references therein.

where $\{{\alpha}_{n}\}$ is a sequence in $(0,1)$, $\{{\lambda}_{n}\}$ is a positive sequence, $T:H\to {2}^{H}$ is a maximal monotone and ${J}_{{\lambda}_{n}}={(I+{\lambda}_{n}T)}^{-1}$. They showed that the sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ generated in (2.1) converges weakly to some $z\in {T}^{-1}(0)$ provided that the control sequence satisfies some restrictions.

In this paper, we use $VI(C,A)$ to denote the solution set of (2.2). It is known that $x\in C$ is a solution to (2.1) iff *x* is a fixed point of the mapping ${P}_{C}(I-\lambda A)$, where $\lambda >0$ is a constant, *I* stands for the identity mapping, and ${P}_{C}$ stands for the metric projection from *H* onto *C*. If *A* is *α*-inverse-strongly monotone and $\lambda \in (0,2\alpha ]$, then the mapping ${P}_{C}(I-rA)$ is nonexpansive; see [28] for more details. It follows that $VI(C,A)$ is closed and convex.

where $\{{\alpha}_{n}\}$ is a sequence in $(0,1)$, $\{{\lambda}_{n}\}$ is a positive sequence, $S:C\to C$ is a nonexpansive mapping and $A:C\to H$ is an inverse-strongly monotone mapping. They proved that the sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ generated in (2.3) converges weakly to some $z\in VI(C,A)\cap F(S)$ provided that the control sequence satisfies some restrictions.

for each $n\ge 1$, where $\{{\alpha}_{n}\}$ is a sequence in $(0,1)$, $\{{r}_{n}\}$ is a positive sequence, $S:C\to C$ is a nonexpansive mapping and $F:C\times C\to R$ is a bifunction. They showed that the sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ generated in (2.4) converges weakly to some $z\in EP(F)\cap F(S)$, where $EP(F)$ stands for the solution set of the equilibrium problem, provided that the control sequence satisfies some restrictions.

where $\{{\alpha}_{n}\}$ is a sequence in $(0,1)$, $\{{\lambda}_{n}\}$ is a positive sequence, $S:C\to C$ is a nonexpansive mapping, $A:C\to H$ is an inversely-strongly monotone mapping, $B:D(B)\subset C\to {2}^{H}$ is a maximal monotone operator, ${J}_{{\lambda}_{n}}={(I+{\lambda}_{n}B)}^{-1}$ is the resolvent of *B*. They showed that the sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ generated in (2.5) converges weakly to some $z\in {(A+B)}^{-1}(0)\cap F(S)$ provided that the control sequence satisfies some restrictions.

In this paper, motivated by the above results, we consider the problem of finding a common solution to the zero point problems involving two monotone operators and fixed point problems involving asymptotically strictly pseudocontractive mappings based on a one-step iterative method. Weak convergence theorems are established in the framework of Hilbert spaces.

In order to obtain our main results in this paper, we need the following lemmas.

**Lemma 2.1** [20]

*Let* *C* *be a nonempty*, *closed*, *and convex subset of* *H*, $A:C\to H$ *be a mapping*, *and* $B:H\rightrightarrows H$ *be a maximal monotone operator*. *Then* $F({J}_{r}(I-\lambda A))={(A+B)}^{-1}(0)$.

**Lemma 2.2**

*Let*

*H*

*be a real Hilbert space*.

*For any*$a\in (0,1)$

*and*$x,y\in H$,

*the following holds*:

**Lemma 2.3** [35]

*Let*$\{{a}_{n}\}$, $\{{b}_{n}\}$,

*and*$\{{c}_{n}\}$

*be three nonnegative sequences satisfying the following condition*:

*where* ${n}_{0}$ *is some nonnegative integer*, ${\sum}_{n=1}^{\mathrm{\infty}}{b}_{n}<\mathrm{\infty}$ *and* ${\sum}_{n=1}^{\mathrm{\infty}}{c}_{n}<\mathrm{\infty}$. *Then the limit* ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}{a}_{n}$ *exists*.

**Lemma 2.4** [36]

*Let*

*C*

*be a nonempty closed convex subset of*

*H*

*and*

*S*

*be an asymptotically*

*κ*-

*strictly pseudocontractive mapping*.

*Then we have*

- (a)
*S**is uniformly Lipschitz continuous*; - (b)
$I-S$

*is demiclosed at zero*,*that is*,*if*$\{{x}_{n}\}$*is a sequence in**C**with*${x}_{n}\rightharpoonup x$*and*${x}_{n}-S{x}_{n}\to 0$,*then*$x\in F(S)$.

The following lemma can be obtained from [37] immediately.

**Lemma 2.5**

*Let*

*H*

*be a real Hilbert space*.

*The following holds*:

*where* $N\ge 2$ *denotes some positive integer*, ${a}_{1},{a}_{2},\dots ,{a}_{N}$ *are real numbers with* ${\sum}_{i=1}^{N}{a}_{i}=1$ *in* $(0,1)$ *and* ${x}_{1},{x}_{2},\dots ,{x}_{N}\in H$.

## 3 Main results

**Theorem 3.1**

*Let*

*C*

*be a nonempty closed convex subset of*

*H*.

*Let*$N\ge 2$

*be some positive integer and*$S:C\to C$

*be an asymptotically strictly pseudocontractive mapping with the constant*

*κ*

*and the sequence*$\{{k}_{n}\}$.

*Let*${A}_{m}:C\to H$

*be an inverse*-

*strongly monotone mapping with the constant*${\alpha}_{m}$

*and*${B}_{m}$

*be a maximal monotone operator on*

*H*

*such that the domain of*${B}_{m}$

*is included in*

*C*

*for each*$m\in \{2,3,\dots ,N\}$.

*Assume*$\mathcal{F}={\bigcap}_{m=2}^{N}{({A}_{m}+{B}_{m})}^{-1}(0)\cap F(S)\ne \mathrm{\varnothing}$.

*Let*$\{{\alpha}_{n,1}\},\{{\alpha}_{n,2}\},\dots ,\{{\alpha}_{n,N}\}$

*and*$\{{\beta}_{n}\}$

*are real number sequences in*$(0,1)$.

*Let*$\{{r}_{n,2}\},\dots $ ,

*and*$\{{r}_{n,N}\}$

*be positive real number sequences*.

*Let*$\{{x}_{n}\}$

*be a sequence in*

*C*

*generated in the following iterative process*:

*where*${J}_{{r}_{n,m}}={(I+{r}_{n,m}{B}_{m})}^{-1}$

*is the resolvent of*${B}_{m}$.

*Assume that the sequences*$\{{\alpha}_{n,1}\},\{{\alpha}_{n,2}\},\dots ,\{{\alpha}_{n,N}\}$, $\{{\beta}_{n}\}$, $\{{r}_{n,2}\},\dots ,\{{r}_{n,N}\}$,

*and*$\{{k}_{n}\}$

*satisfy the following restrictions*:

- (a)
${\sum}_{m=1}^{N}{\alpha}_{n,m}=1$

*and*$0<a\le {\alpha}_{n,m}<1$, $\mathrm{\forall}m\in \{2,\dots ,N\}$; - (b)
$0\le \kappa \le {\beta}_{n}\le b<1$;

- (c)
$0<c\le {r}_{n,m}\le d<2{\alpha}_{m}$, $\mathrm{\forall}m\in \{2,\dots ,N\}$;

- (d)
${\sum}_{n=1}^{\mathrm{\infty}}({k}_{n}-1)<\mathrm{\infty}$,

*where* *a*, *b*, *c*, *and* *d* *are positive real numbers*. *Then the sequence* $\{{x}_{n}\}$ *generated in* (3.1) *converges weakly to some point in* ℱ.

*Proof*First, we show $I-{r}_{n,m}{A}_{m}$ is nonexpansive. In view of the restriction (c), we find that

*S*is uniformly continuous, we obtain from (3.12) and (3.13) that

Since $\{{x}_{n}\}$ is bounded, there exists a subsequence $\{{x}_{{n}_{i}}\}$ of $\{{x}_{n}\}$ such that ${x}_{{n}_{i}}\rightharpoonup \omega \in C$. We find that $\omega \in F(S)$ with the aid of Lemma 2.4.

*n*by ${n}_{i}$ and letting $i\to \mathrm{\infty}$, we obtain from (3.10) that

This means $-{A}_{m}{\omega}_{m}\in {B}_{m}\omega $, that is, $0\in ({A}_{m}+{B}_{m})(\omega )$. Hence we get $\omega \in {({A}_{m}+{B}_{m})}^{-1}(0)$ for every $m\in \{1,2,\dots ,N\}$. This completes the proof that $\omega \in \mathcal{F}$.

This is a contradiction. This shows that $\omega ={\omega}^{\prime}$. This proves that the sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ converges weakly to $\omega \in \mathcal{F}$. This completes the proof. □

If $N=2$, then we have the following.
