Convergence of modified S-iteration process for two asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in the intermediate sense in CAT(0) spaces

Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to study modified S-iteration process and investigate the existence and convergence theorems in the setting of CAT(0) spaces for a class of mappings which is wider than that of asymptotically nonexpansive mappings. Our results generalize, unify and extend several comparable results in the existing literature.

1 Introduction

A metric space X is a CAT(0) space if it is geodesically connected and if every geodesic triangle in X is at least as ‘thin’ as its comparison triangle in the Euclidean plane. It is well known that any complete, simply connected Riemannian manifold having nonpositive sectional curvature is a CAT(0) space. Other examples include pre-Hilbert spaces (see [1]), -trees (see [2]), Euclidean buildings (see [3]), the complex Hilbert ball with a hyperbolic metric (see [4]), and many others. For a thorough discussion of these spaces and of the fundamental role they play in geometry, we refer the reader to Bridson and Haefliger [1].

Fixed point theory in CAT(0) spaces has been first studied by Kirk (see [5, 6]). He showed that every nonexpansive (single-valued) mapping defined on a bounded closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space always has a fixed point. It is worth mentioning that the results in CAT(0) spaces can be applied to any CAT(k) space with k0 since any CAT(k) space is a CAT( k ) space for every k k (see, e.g., [1]).

The Mann iteration process is defined by the sequence { x n },

{ x 1 K , x n + 1 = ( 1 α n ) x n + α n T x n , n 1 ,
(1)

where { α n } is a sequence in (0,1).

Further, the Ishikawa iteration process is defined by the sequence { x n },

{ x 1 K , x n + 1 = ( 1 α n ) x n + α n T y n , y n = ( 1 β n ) x n + β n T x n , n 1 ,
(2)

where { α n } and { β n } are the sequences in (0,1). This iteration process reduces to the Mann iteration process when β n =0 for all n1.

In 2007, Agarwal, O’Regan and Sahu [7] introduced the S-iteration process in a Banach space,

{ x 1 K , x n + 1 = ( 1 α n ) T x n + α n T y n , y n = ( 1 β n ) x n + β n T x n , n 1 ,
(3)

where { α n } and { β n } are the sequences in (0,1). Note that (3) is independent of (2) (and hence (1)). They showed that their process is independent of those of Mann and Ishikawa and converges faster than both of these (see [[7], Proposition 3.1]).

In 1991, Schu [8] considered the modified Mann iteration process which is a generalization of the Mann iteration process,

{ x 1 K , x n + 1 = ( 1 α n ) x n + α n T n x n , n 1 ,
(4)

where { α n } is a sequence in (0,1).

In 1994, Tan and Xu [9] studied the modified Ishikawa iteration process which is a generalization of the Ishikawa iteration process,

{ x 1 K , x n + 1 = ( 1 α n ) x n + α n T n y n , y n = ( 1 β n ) x n + β n T n x n , n 1 ,
(5)

where { α n } and { β n } are the sequences in (0,1). This iteration process reduces to the modified Mann iteration process when β n =0 for all n1.

Recently, Agarwal, O’Regan and Sahu [7] introduced the modified S-iteration process in a Banach space,

{ x 1 K , x n + 1 = ( 1 α n ) T n x n + α n T n y n , y n = ( 1 β n ) x n + β n T n x n , n 1 ,
(6)

where { α n } and { β n } are the sequences in (0,1). Note that (6) is independent of (5) (and hence of (4)). Also (6) reduces to (3) when T n =T for all n1.

Very recently, Şahin and Başarir [10] modified iteration process (6) in a CAT(0) space as follows.

Let K be a nonempty closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space X, and let T:KK be an asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive mapping with F(T). Suppose that { x n } is a sequence generated iteratively by

{ x 1 K , x n + 1 = ( 1 α n ) T n x n α n T n y n , y n = ( 1 β n ) x n β n T n x n , n 1 ,
(7)

where and throughout the paper { α n }, { β n } are the sequences such that 0 α n , β n 1 for all n1. They studied modified S-iteration process for asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive mappings in a CAT(0) space and established some strong convergence results under some suitable conditions which generalize some results of Khan and Abbas [11].

Inspired and motivated by [10] and some others, we modify iteration scheme (7) for two mappings in a CAT(0) space as follows.

Let K be a nonempty closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space X, and let S,T:KK be two asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in the intermediate sense with F(S,T)=F(S)F(T). Suppose that { x n } is a sequence generated iteratively by

{ x 1 K , x n + 1 = ( 1 α n ) T n x n α n S n y n , y n = ( 1 β n ) x n β n T n x n , n 1 ,
(8)

where and throughout the paper { α n }, { β n } are the sequences such that 0 α n , β n 1 for all n1.

In this paper, we study the newly defined modified S-iteration process (8) involving two asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in the intermediate sense and investigate the existence and convergence theorems for the above mentioned mappings and iteration scheme in the setting of CAT(0) spaces. Our results generalize, unify and extend several comparable results in the existing literature.

2 Preliminaries and lemmas

In order to prove the main results of this paper, we need the following definitions, concepts and lemmas.

Let (X,d) be a metric space and K be its subset. Let T:KK be a mapping. A point xK is called a fixed point of T if Tx=x. We will also denote by F(S,T) the set of common fixed points of S and T, that is, F(S,T)={xK:Sx=Tx=x}.

The concept of asymptotically nonexpansive mapping was introduced by Goebel and Kirk [12] in 1972. The iterative approximation problem for asymptotically nonexpansive and asymptotically quasi-nonexpansive mappings was studied by many authors in a Banach space and a CAT(0) space (see, e.g., [9, 1319]).

Definition 2.1 Let (X,d) be a metric space and K be its nonempty subset. Then T:KK is said to be

  1. (1)

    nonexpansive if d(Tx,Ty)d(x,y) for all x,yK;

  2. (2)

    asymptotically nonexpansive if there exists a sequence { r n }[0,) with lim n r n =0 such that d( T n x, T n y)(1+ r n )d(x,y) for all x,yK and n1;

  3. (3)

    uniformly L-Lipschitzian if there exists a constant L>0 such that d( T n x, T n y)Ld(x,y) for all x,yK and n1;

  4. (4)

    semi-compact if for a sequence { x n } in K with lim n d( x n ,T x n )=0, there exists a subsequence { x n k } of { x n } such that x n k pK.

In 1993, Bruck, Kuczumow and Reich [20] introduced a notion of asymptotically nonexpansive mapping in the intermediate sense. A mapping T:KK is said to be asymptotically nonexpansive in the intermediate sense provided that T is uniformly continuous and

lim sup n sup x , y K { d ( T n x , T n y ) d ( x , y ) } 0.

From the above definitions, it follows that an asymptotically nonexpansive mapping must be asymptotically nonexpansive mapping in the intermediate sense. But the converse does not hold as the following example.

Example 2.1 (See [21])

Let X=R, K=[ 1 π , 1 π ] and |λ|<1. For each xK, define

T(x)= { λ x sin ( 1 x ) if  x 0 , 0 if  x = 0 .

Then T is an asymptotically nonexpansive mapping in the intermediate sense but it is not an asymptotically nonexpansive mapping.

Remark 2.1 It is clear that the class of asymptotically nonexpansive mappings includes nonexpansive mappings, whereas the class of asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in the intermediate sense is larger than that of asymptotically nonexpansive mappings.

Let (X,d) be a metric space. A geodesic path joining xX to yX (or, more briefly, a geodesic from x to y) is a map c from a closed interval [0,l]R to X such that c(0)=x, c(l)=y and d(c(t),c( t ))=|t t | for all t, t [0,l]. In particular, c is an isometry, and d(x,y)=l. The image α of c is called a geodesic (or metric) segment joining x and y. We say that X is (i) a geodesic space if any two points of X are joined by a geodesic and (ii) uniquely geodesic if there is exactly one geodesic joining x and y for each x,yX, which we will denote by [x,y], called the segment joining x to y.

A geodesic triangle ( x 1 , x 2 , x 3 ) in a geodesic metric space (X,d) consists of three points in X (the vertices of ) and a geodesic segment between each pair of vertices (the edges of ). A comparison triangle for the geodesic triangle ( x 1 , x 2 , x 3 ) in (X,d) is a triangle ¯ ( x 1 , x 2 , x 3 ):=( x ¯ 1 , x ¯ 2 , x ¯ 3 ) in R 2 such that d R 2 ( x ¯ i , x ¯ j )=d( x i , x j ) for i,j{1,2,3}. Such a triangle always exists (see [1]).

CAT(0) space: A geodesic metric space is said to be a CAT(0) space if all geodesic triangles of appropriate size satisfy the following CAT(0) comparison axiom.

Let be a geodesic triangle in X, and let ¯ R 2 be a comparison triangle for . Then is said to satisfy the CAT(0) inequality if for all x,y and all comparison points x ¯ , y ¯ ¯ ,

d(x,y) d R 2 ( x ¯ , y ¯ ).
(9)

Complete CAT(0) spaces are often called Hadamard spaces (see [21]). If x, y 1 , y 2 are points of a CAT(0) space and y 0 is the midpoint of the segment [ y 1 , y 2 ] which we will denote by ( y 1 y 2 )/2, then the CAT(0) inequality implies

d 2 ( x , y 1 y 2 2 ) 1 2 d 2 (x, y 1 )+ 1 2 d 2 (x, y 2 ) 1 4 d 2 ( y 1 , y 2 ).
(10)

Inequality (9) is the (CN) inequality of Bruhat and Tits [22]. The above inequality was extended in [23] as

d 2 ( z , α x ( 1 α ) y ) α d 2 ( z , x ) + ( 1 α ) d 2 ( z , y ) α ( 1 α ) d 2 ( x , y )
(11)

for any α[0,1] and x,y,zX.

Let us recall that a geodesic metric space is a CAT(0) space if and only if it satisfies the (CN) inequality (see [[1], p.163]). Moreover, if X is a CAT(0) metric space and x,yX, then for any α[0,1], there exists a unique point αx(1α)y[x,y] such that

d ( z , α x ( 1 α ) y ) αd(z,x)+(1α)d(z,y)
(12)

for any zX and [x,y]={αx(1α)y:α[0,1]}.

A subset K of a CAT(0) space X is convex if, for any x,yK, we have [x,y]K.

For the development of our main results, we recall some definitions, and some key results are listed in the form of lemmas.

Lemma 2.1 (See [17])

Let X be a CAT(0) space.

  1. (i)

    For x,yX and t[0,1], there exists a unique point z[x,y] such that

    d(x,z)=td(x,y)andd(y,z)=(1t)d(x,y).
    (A)

We use the notation (1t)xty for the unique point z satisfying (A).

  1. (ii)

    For x,yX and t[0,1], we have

    d ( ( 1 t ) x t y , z ) (1t)d(x,z)+td(y,z).

Let { x n } be a bounded sequence in a closed convex subset K of a CAT(0) space X. For xX, set

r ( x , { x n } ) = lim sup n d(x, x n ).

The asymptotic radius r({ x n }) of { x n } is given by

r ( { x n } ) =inf { r ( x , { x n } ) : x X }

and the asymptotic center A({ x n }) of { x n } is the set

A ( { x n } ) = { x X : r ( { x n } ) = r ( x , { x n } ) } .

It is known that, in a CAT(0) space, A({ x n }) consists of exactly one point [[24], Proposition 7].

We now recall the definition of Δ-convergence and weak convergence () in a CAT(0) space.

Definition 2.2 (See [25])

A sequence { x n } in a CAT(0) space X is said to Δ-converge to xX if x is the unique asymptotic center of { x n } for every subsequence { u n } of { x n }.

In this case we write Δ- lim n x n =x and call x the Δ-limit of { x n }.

Recall that a bounded sequence { x n } in X is said to be regular if r({ x n })=r({ u n }) for every subsequence { u n } of { x n }. In the Banach space it is known that every bounded sequence has a regular subsequence [[26], Lemma 15.2].

Since in a CAT(0) space every regular sequence Δ-converges, we see that every bounded sequence in X has a Δ-convergent subsequence, also it is noticed that [[25], p.3690].

Lemma 2.2 (See [27])

Given { x n }X such that { x n } Δ-converges to x and given yX with yx, then

lim sup n d( x n ,x)< lim sup n d( x n ,y).

In a Banach space, the above condition is known as the Opial property.

Now, recall the definition of weak convergence in a CAT(0) space.

Definition 2.3 (See [28])

Let K be a closed convex subset of a CAT(0) space X. A bounded sequence { x n } in K is said to converge weakly to qK if and only if Φ(q)= inf x K Φ(x), where Φ(x)= lim sup n d( x n ,x).

Note that { x n }q if and only if A K { x n }={q}.

Nanjaras and Panyanak [29] established the following relation between Δ-convergence and weak convergence in a CAT(0) space.

Lemma 2.3 (See [29], Proposition 3.12)

Let { x n } be a bounded sequence in a CAT(0) space X, and let K be a closed convex subset of X which contains { x n }. Then

  1. (i)

    Δ- lim x n =x implies x n x.

  2. (ii)

    The converse of (i) is true if { x n } is regular.

Lemma 2.4 (See [[23], Lemma 2.8])

If { x n } is a bounded sequence in a CAT(0) space X with A({ x n })={x} and { u n } is a subsequence of { x n } with A({ u n })={u} and the sequence {d( x n ,u)} converges, then x=u.

Lemma 2.5 (See [[30], Proposition 2.1])

If K is a closed convex subset of a CAT(0) space X and if { x n } is a bounded sequence in K, then the asymptotic center of { x n } is in K.

Lemma 2.6 (See [31])

Suppose that { a n } and { b n } are two sequences of nonnegative numbers such that a n + 1 a n + b n for all n1. If n = 1 b n converges, then lim n a n exists.

Lemma 2.7 (See [[27], Theorem 3.1])

Let X be a complete CAT(0) space, K be a nonempty closed convex subset of X. If T:KK is an asymptotically nonexpansive mapping in the intermediate sense, then T has a fixed point.

Lemma 2.8 (See [[27], Theorem 3.2])

Let X be a complete CAT(0) space, K be a nonempty closed convex subset of X. If T:KK is an asymptotically nonexpansive mapping in the intermediate sense, then Fix(T) is closed and convex.

Lemma 2.9 (Demiclosed principle) (See [[27], Proposition 3.3])

Let K be a closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space X and T:KK be an asymptotically nonexpansive mapping in the intermediate sense. If { x n } is a bounded sequence in K such that lim n d( x n ,T x n )=0 and { x n }w, then Tw=w.

Lemma 2.10 (See [[27], Corollary 3.4])

Let K be a closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space X and T:KK be an asymptotically nonexpansive mapping in the intermediate sense. If { x n } is a bounded sequence in K Δ-converging to x and lim n d( x n ,T x n )=0, then xK and Tx=x.

3 Main results

Now, we prove the following lemmas using modified S-iteration scheme (8) needed in the sequel.

Lemma 3.1 Let K be a nonempty closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space X, and let S,T:KK be two asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in the intermediate sense with F(S,T). Suppose that { x n } is defined by the iteration process (8). Put

R n =max { 0 , sup x , y K , n 1 ( d ( S n x , S n y ) d ( x , y ) ) , sup x , y K , n 1 ( d ( T n x , T n y ) d ( x , y ) ) }
(13)

such that n = 1 R n <. Suppose that { α n } and { β n } are real sequences in [a,b] for some a,b(0,1). Then

  1. (i)

    lim n d( x n ,p) exists for all pF(S,T).

  2. (ii)

    lim n d( x n ,F(S,T)) exists.

Proof Let pF(S,T). From (8), (13) and Lemma 2.1(ii), we have

d ( y n , p ) = d ( ( 1 β n ) x n β n T n x n , p ) ( 1 β n ) d ( x n , p ) + β n d ( T n x n , p ) ( 1 β n ) d ( x n , p ) + β n [ d ( x n , p ) + R n ] d ( x n , p ) + R n .
(14)

Again using (8), (13), (14) and Lemma 2.1(ii), we have

d ( x n + 1 , p ) = d ( ( 1 α n ) T n x n α n S n y n , p ) ( 1 α n ) d ( T n x n , p ) + α n d ( T n y n , p ) ( 1 α n ) [ d ( x n , p ) + R n ] + α n [ d ( y n , p ) + R n ] ( 1 α n ) d ( x n , p ) + α n d ( y n , p ) + R n ( 1 α n ) d ( x n , p ) + α n [ d ( x n , p ) + R n ] + R n d ( x n , p ) + 2 R n .
(15)

Taking infimum over all pF(S,T), we have

d( x n + 1 ,p)d ( x n , F ( S , T ) ) +2 R n .
(16)

Since by the hypothesis of the theorem n = 1 R n <, it follows from Lemma 2.6, (15) and (16) that lim n d( x n ,p) and lim n d( x n ,F(S,T)) exist. □

Lemma 3.2 Let K be a nonempty closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space X, and let S,T:KK be two asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in the intermediate sense with F(S,T). Suppose that { x n } is defined by the iteration process (8) and R n is taken as in Lemma  3.1. Suppose that { α n } and { β n } are real sequences in [a,b] for some a,b(0,1). Then lim n d( x n ,S x n )=0 and lim n d( x n ,T x n )=0.

Proof Using (8) and (11), we have

d 2 ( y n , p ) = d 2 ( ( 1 β n ) x n β n T n x n , p ) β n d 2 ( T n x n , p ) + ( 1 β n ) d 2 ( x n , p ) β n ( 1 β n ) d 2 ( T n x n , x n ) β n [ d ( x n , p ) + R n ] 2 + ( 1 β n ) d 2 ( x n , p ) β n ( 1 β n ) d 2 ( T n x n , x n ) d 2 ( x n , p ) + A n β n ( 1 β n ) d 2 ( T n x n , x n ) ,
(17)

where A n = R n 2 +2 R n d( x n ,p), since by the hypothesis n = 1 R n <, it follows that n = 1 A n <. Again using (8), (11) and (17), we have

d 2 ( x n + 1 , p ) = d 2 ( ( 1 α n ) T n x n α n S n y n , p ) α n d 2 ( S n y n , p ) + ( 1 α n ) d 2 ( T n x n , p ) α n ( 1 α n ) d 2 ( S n y n , T n x n ) α n [ d ( y n , p ) + R n ] 2 + ( 1 α n ) [ d ( x n , p ) + R n ] 2 α n ( 1 α n ) d 2 ( S n y n , T n x n ) α n [ d 2 ( y n , p ) + B n ] + ( 1 α n ) [ d 2 ( x n , p ) + A n ] α n ( 1 α n ) d 2 ( S n y n , T n x n ) α n d 2 ( y n , p ) + ( 1 α n ) d 2 ( x n , p ) + α n B n + ( 1 α n ) A n α n ( 1 α n ) d 2 ( S n y n , T n x n ) α n [ d 2 ( x n , p ) + A n β n ( 1 β n ) d 2 ( T n x n , x n ) ] + ( 1 α n ) d 2 ( x n , p ) + α n B n + ( 1 α n ) A n α n ( 1 α n ) d 2 ( S n y n , T n x n ) d 2 ( x n , p ) + A n + α n B n α n β n ( 1 β n ) d 2 ( T n x n , x n ) α n ( 1 α n ) d 2 ( S n y n , T n x n ) ,
(18)

where A n = R n 2 +2 R n d( x n ,p) and B n = R n 2 +2 R n d( y n ,p), since by the hypothesis n = 1 R n <, it follows that n = 1 A n < and n = 1 B n <. This implies that

d 2 ( T n x n , x n ) 1 α n β n ( 1 β n ) [ d 2 ( x n , p ) d 2 ( x n + 1 , p ) ] + A n α n β n ( 1 β n ) + B n β n ( 1 β n ) 1 a 2 ( 1 b ) [ d 2 ( x n , p ) d 2 ( x n + 1 , p ) ] + A n a 2 ( 1 b ) + B n a ( 1 b )
(19)

and

d 2 ( S n y n , T n x n ) 1 α n ( 1 α n ) [ d 2 ( x n , p ) d 2 ( x n + 1 , p ) ] + A n α n ( 1 α n ) + B n ( 1 α n ) 1 a ( 1 b ) [ d 2 ( x n , p ) d 2 ( x n + 1 , p ) ] + A n a ( 1 b ) + B n ( 1 b ) .
(20)

Since A n 0, B n 0 as n and d( x n ,p) is convergent, therefore on taking limit as n in (19) and (20), we get

lim n d ( T n x n , x n ) =0
(21)

and

lim n d ( S n y n , T n x n ) =0.
(22)

Now using (8) and (21), we get

d( x n , y n )(1 β n )d( x n , x n )+ β n d ( x n , T n x n )

implies

lim n d( x n , y n )=0.
(23)

Again using (21) and (22), we get

d ( S n y n , x n ) d ( S n y n , T n x n ) +d ( T n x n , x n )

implies

lim n d ( S n y n , x n ) =0.
(24)

Further using (23) and (24), we get

d ( S n x n , x n ) d ( S n x n , S n y n ) + d ( S n y n , x n ) d ( x n , y n ) + R n + d ( S n y n , x n )

implies

lim n d ( S n x n , x n ) =0.
(25)

Now using (8), (21) and (24), we get

d( x n , x n + 1 )(1 α n )d ( x n , T n x n ) + α n d ( x n , S n y n )

implies

lim n d( x n , x n + 1 )=0.
(26)

Let μ n =d( T n x n , x n ), by (21), we have μ n 0 as n. Now, we have

d ( x n , T x n ) d ( x n , x n + 1 ) + d ( x n + 1 , T n + 1 x n + 1 ) + d ( T n + 1 x n + 1 , T n + 1 x n ) + d ( T n + 1 x n , T x n ) d ( x n , x n + 1 ) + d ( x n + 1 , T n + 1 x n + 1 ) + d ( x n + 1 , x n ) + R n + 1 + d ( T n + 1 x n , T x n ) μ n + 1 + 2 d ( x n , x n + 1 ) + R n + 1 + d ( T n + 1 x n , T x n ) 0 as  n
(27)

by (21), (26), R n + 1 0 and the uniform continuity of T. Similarly, we can prove that

lim n d( x n ,S x n )=0.
(28)

This completes the proof. □

Now we prove the Δ-convergence and strong convergence results.

Theorem 3.1 Let K be a nonempty closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space X, and let S,T:KK be two asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in the intermediate sense with F(S,T). Suppose that { x n } is defined by the iteration process (8) and R n be taken as in Lemma  3.1. Suppose that { α n } and { β n } are real sequences in [a,b] for some a,b(0,1). Then the sequence { x n } is Δ-convergent to a point of F(S,T).

Proof We first show that w w ({ x n })F(S,T). Let u w w ({ x n }), then there exists a subsequence { u n } of { x n } such that A({ x n })={u}. By Lemma 2.5, there exists a subsequence { v n } of { u n } such that Δ- lim n v n =vK. By Lemma 2.10, vF(T) and vF(S) and so vF(S,T). By Lemma 3.1 lim n d( x n ,F(S,T)) exists, so by Lemma 2.4, we have u=v, i.e., w w ({ x n })F(S,T).

To show that { x n } Δ-converges to a point in F(S,T), it is sufficient to show that w w ({ x n }) consists of exactly one point.

Let { u n } be a subsequence of { x n } with A({ u n })={u}, and let A({ x n })={x} for some u w w ({ x n })F(S,T) and {d( x n ,v)} converge. By Lemma 2.4, we have x=vF(S,T). Thus w w ({ x n })={x}. This shows that { x n } is Δ-convergent to a point of F(S,T). This completes the proof. □

Theorem 3.2 Let K be a nonempty closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space X, and let S,T:KK be two asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in the intermediate sense with F(S,T). Suppose that { x n } is defined by the iteration process (8) and R n is taken as in Lemma  3.1. Suppose that { α n } and { β n } are real sequences in [a,b] for some a,b(0,1). If lim inf n d( x n ,F(S,T))=0 or lim sup n d( x n ,F(S,T))=0, where d(x,F(S,T))= inf p F ( S , T ) d(x,p), then the sequence { x n } converges strongly to a point in F(S,T).

Proof From (16) of Lemma 3.1, we have

d( x n + 1 ,p)d ( x n , F ( S , T ) ) +2 R n ,

where pF(S,T). Since by the hypothesis of the theorem n = 1 R n <, by Lemma 2.6 and lim inf n d( x n ,F(S,T))=0 or lim sup n d( x n ,F(S,T))=0 gives that

lim n d ( x n , F ( S , T ) ) =0.
(29)

Now, we show that { x n } is a Cauchy sequence in K.

From (15), we have

d ( x n + m , p ) d ( x n + m 1 , p ) + 2 R n + m 1 d ( x n + m 2 , p ) + 2 [ R n + m 2 + R n + m 1 ] d ( x n , p ) + 2 k = n n + m 1 R k
(30)

for the natural numbers m, n and pF(S,T). Since lim n d( x n ,F(S,T))=0, therefore for any ε>0, there exists a natural number n 0 such that d( x n ,F(S,T))<ε/8 and k = n n + m 1 R k <ε/4 for all n n 0 . So, we can find p F(S,T) such that d( x n 0 , p )<ε/4. Hence, for all n n 0 and m1, we have

d ( x n + m , x n ) d ( x n + m , p ) + d ( x n , p ) d ( x n 0 , p ) + k = n 0 n + m 1 R k + d ( x n 0 , p ) + k = n 0 n + m 1 R k = 2 d ( x n 0 , p ) + 2 k = n 0 n + m 1 R k < 2 ( ε 4 ) + 2 ( ε 4 ) = ε .
(31)

This proves that { x n } is a Cauchy sequence in K. Thus, the completeness of X implies that { x n } must be convergent. Assume that lim n x n =q. Since K is closed, therefore qK. Next, we show that qF(S,T). Since lim n d( x n ,F(S,T))=0, we get d(q,F(S,T))=0, closedness of F(S,T) gives that qF(S,T). This completes the proof. □

Theorem 3.3 Let K be a nonempty closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space X, and let S,T:KK be two asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in the intermediate sense with F(S,T). Suppose that { x n } is defined by the iteration process (8) and R n is taken as in Lemma  3.1. Suppose that { α n } and { β n } are real sequences in [a,b] for some a,b(0,1). If S and T satisfy the following conditions:

  1. (i)

    lim n d( x n ,S x n )=0 and lim n d( x n ,T x n )=0;

  2. (ii)

    If the sequence { z n } in K satisfies lim n d( z n ,S z n )=0 and lim n d( z n ,T z n )=0, then lim inf n d( z n ,F(S,T))=0 or lim sup n d( z n ,F(S,T))=0.

Then the sequence { x n } converges strongly to a point of F(S,T).

Proof It follows from the hypothesis that lim n d( x n ,S x n )=0 and lim n d( x n ,T x n )=0. From (ii), lim inf n d( x n ,F(S,T))=0 or lim sup n d( x n ,F(S,T))=0. Therefore, the sequence { x n } must converge strongly to a point in F(S,T) by Theorem 3.2. This completes the proof. □

Theorem 3.4 Let K be a nonempty closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space X, and let S,T:KK be two asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in the intermediate sense with F(S,T). Suppose that { x n } is defined by the iteration process (8) and R n is taken as in Lemma  3.1. Suppose that { α n } and { β n } are real sequences in [a,b] for some a,b(0,1). If either S or T is semi-compact, then the sequence { x n } converges strongly to a point of F(S,T).

Proof Suppose that T is semi-compact. By Lemma 3.2, we have lim n d( x n ,T x n )=0. So there exists a subsequence { x n j } of { x n } such that x n j pK. Now Lemma 3.2 guarantees that lim n j d( x n j ,T x n j )=0 and so d(p,Tp)=0. Similarly, we can show that d(p,Sp)=0. Thus pF(S,T). By (16), we have

d( x n + 1 ,p)d( x n ,p)+2 R n .

Since by the hypothesis n = 1 R n <, by Lemma 2.6, lim n d( x n ,p) exists and x n j pF(S,T) gives that x n pF(S,T). This shows that { x n } converges strongly to a point of F(S,T). This completes the proof. □

We recall the following definition.

A mapping T:KK, where K is a subset of a normed linear space E, is said to satisfy Condition (A) [32] if there exists a nondecreasing function f:[0,)[0,) with f(0)=0 and f(t)>0 for all t(0,) such that xTxf(d(x,F(T))) for all xK, where d(x,F(T))=inf{xp:pF(T)}.

We modify this definition for two mappings.

Two mappings S,T:KK, where K is a subset of a normed linear space E, are said to satisfy Condition (B) if there exists a nondecreasing function f:[0,)[0,) with f(0)=0 and f(t)>0 for all t(0,) such that a 1 xSx+ a 2 xTxf(d(x,F(S,T))) for all xK, where d(x,F(S,T))=inf{xp:pF(S,T)} and a 1 and a 2 are two nonnegative real numbers such that a 1 + a 2 =1. It is to be noted that Condition (B) is weaker than the compactness of the domain K.

Remark 3.1 Condition (B) reduces to Condition (A) when S=T.

As an application of Theorem 3.2, we establish another strong convergence result employing Condition (B) as follows.

Theorem 3.5 Let K be a nonempty closed convex subset of a complete CAT(0) space X, and let S,T:KK be two asymptotically nonexpansive mappings in the intermediate sense with F(S,T). Suppose that { x n } is defined by the iteration process (8) and R n is taken as in Lemma  3.1. Suppose that { α n } and { β n } are real sequences in [a,b] for some a,b(0,1). If S and T satisfy Condition (B), then the sequence { x n } converges strongly to a point of F(S,T).

Proof By Lemma 3.2, we know that

lim n d( x n ,S x n )=0and lim n d( x n ,T x n )=0.
(32)

From Condition (B) and (32), we get

lim n f ( d ( x n , F ( S , T ) ) ) a 1 lim n d( x n ,S x n )+ a 2 lim n d( x n ,T x n )=0,

i.e., lim n f(d( x n ,F(S,T)))=0. Since f:[0,)[0,) is a nondecreasing function satisfying f(0)=0, f(t)>0 for all t(0,), therefore we have

lim n d ( x n , F ( S , T ) ) =0.

Now all the conditions of Theorem 3.2 are satisfied, therefore by its conclusion { x n } converges strongly to a point of F(S,T). This completes the proof. □

Remark 3.2 Our results generalize, unify and extend several comparable results in the existing literature.
