### Abstract

Let E be a real normed linear space and A : E → E be a uniformly quasi-accretive map. For arbitrary x_{1} ∈ E define the sequence x_{n} ∈ E by x_{n+i} := x_{n} - α_{n}Ax_{n}, n ≥1, where {α_{n}} is a positve real sequence satisfying the following conditions: (i) Σα_{n} = ∞; (ii) lim α_{n} = 0. For x* ∈ N (A) := {x ∈ E : Ax = 0}, assume that σ := inf_{n∈N0} ψ(∥x_{n+1}-x*∥)/∥x_{n+1}-x*∥ > 0 and that ∥Ax_{n+1} - Ax_{n}∥ → 0, where N_{0} := {n ∈ N (the set of all positive integers): x_{n+1} ≠ x*} and ψ : [0,∞) → [0,∞) is a strictly increasing function with ψ(0) = 0. It is proved that a Mann-type iteration process converges strongly to x*. Furthermore if, in addition, A is a uniformly continuous map, it is proved, without the condition on σ, that the Mann-type iteration process converges strongly to x*. As a consequence, corresponding convergence theorems for fixed points of hemi-contractive maps are proved.

N2 - Let E be a real normed linear space and A : E → E be a uniformly quasi-accretive map. For arbitrary x1 ∈ E define the sequence xn ∈ E by xn+i := xn - αnAxn, n ≥1, where {αn} is a positve real sequence satisfying the following conditions: (i) Σαn = ∞; (ii) lim αn = 0. For x* ∈ N (A) := {x ∈ E : Ax = 0}, assume that σ := infn∈N0 ψ(∥xn+1-x*∥)/∥xn+1-x*∥ > 0 and that ∥Axn+1 - Axn∥ → 0, where N0 := {n ∈ N (the set of all positive integers): xn+1 ≠ x*} and ψ : [0,∞) → [0,∞) is a strictly increasing function with ψ(0) = 0. It is proved that a Mann-type iteration process converges strongly to x*. Furthermore if, in addition, A is a uniformly continuous map, it is proved, without the condition on σ, that the Mann-type iteration process converges strongly to x*. As a consequence, corresponding convergence theorems for fixed points of hemi-contractive maps are proved.
