Let C be a closed and convex subset of a real Hilbert space H. Let T be a Lipschitzian pseudocontractive mapping of C into itself, A be a γ-inverse strongly monotone mapping of C into H and let B be a maximal monotone operator on H such that the domain of B is included in C. We introduce an iteration scheme for finding a minimum-norm point of F(T) ∩ (A + B)-1(0). Application to a common element of the set of fixed points of a Lipschitzian pseudocontractive and solutions of variational inequality for α-inverse strongly monotone mappings is included. Our theorems improve and unify most of the results that have been proved in this direction for this important class of nonlinear mappings. To the best of our knowledge, approximating a common fixed point of pseudocontractive mappings with explicit scheme has not been possible and our result is even the first result that states the solution of a variational inequality in the set of fixed points of pseudocontractive mappings. Our scheme which is explicit is the best to use for the problem under consideration.
