In this paper, we introduce a new concept of W-nonexpansive mappings and obtain fixed point theorems for nonexpansive mappings for non-convex set. Our results resolve fixed pointed problem that nonexpansive mappings be not on closed convex set, and it extends fixed point theorems for nonexpansive mappings.

Keywords: W-nonexpansive mapping, Hilbert space, fixed point theorem, non-convex set.

1. Introduction and preliminaries

Fixed point theory is widely applied in engineering. Browder (1965) [1], Kirk (1965) [2] obtained fixed points theorem for nonexpansive mapping. Non-expansion fixed point theory has made great progress, large number of results are obtained by authors (e.g. See [3-11]). let’s come up with some definitions.

Definition 1.1 Let X be a nonempty set, the function W:X×X[0,) is called triangular if for all x,yX, if W(x,y)1,W(y,z)1 or W(y,x)1,W(y,z)1, then W(x,z)1.

Definition 1.2 Let (X,d) be a metric space and T:XX be a given mapping, if there exists a function W:X×X[0,) such that Wx,ydTx,Tydx,y, x,yX, then we say that T is a W-nonexpansive mapping.

Clearly, any nonexpansive mapping is a W-nonexpansive mapping with W(x,y)=1 for all x,yX.

Definition 1.3 Let T:XX be a mapping and W:X×X[0,) be a function. We say that T is a W-admissible if W(x,y)1W(Tx,Ty)1, x,yX.

Definition 1.4 [4] Let H be a Hilbert space, T:HH is called demicompact if whenever {xn}H is bounded and {Txn-Txn} strongly convergent, then there exists a subsequence {xnk} of {xn} which is strongly convergent.

Next our main results are presented.

2. Main results

Theorem 2.1 Let E be a bounded closed convex subset of a Hilbert space H, W:E×E[0,) is triangular function, T:EE is a W-nonexpansive mapping and it is W-admissible. If the following conditions are satisfied:

(w1) there exists x0E such that W(x0,Tx0)1;

(w2) there exists a sequence {sj}[0,1) with limnsj=1 such that for all x,yE, if W(x,y)1, then W(x,(1-sj)x+sjy)1, sj{sj};

(w3) if {xn}E is satisfied W(x0,xn)1, moreover xnx* or xnx*E, then W(xn,x*)1.

Then T has a fixed point.

Proof. Let x0X such that α(x0,Tx0)1. Take xn+1j=(1-sj)x0+sjTxnj for all j, nN, there x0=x0j. Now we fix j, for each jN, from (w2), we may obtain W(x0j,x1j)1.

Also, for T is W-admissible, then W(Tx0j,Tx1j)1 is obtained. According to W is a triangular function and (w1), then W(x0j,Tx1j)1.

Once again use (w2), then W(x0j,x2j)1 is also obtained. Continuously, we easily obtain:

Wx0j,xnj1,    nN.

Based on that W is triangular, we may get:

Wxnj,xmj1,   n,mN,n<m.

So from Eq. (2) and for T is W-nonexpansive, we have:


Let n, for E is bounded we may get xnj-xmj0, hence {xnj} is Cauchy sequence, it means there exists xj*E such that {xnj} convergent to xj*, that is:


Also, from Eq. (1) and (w3), we have:


Once again by Eq. (1), for W is triangular, so we have:


Since E is bounded, closed and convex in Hilbert H, then it is weakly compact. Hence there exists a x*E such that:

xj*x*,    (j).

From Eqs. (6, 7), applying (w3) we have:


Next, we show that xj*=(1-sj)x0j+sjTxj*.

Indeed, according to xnj=(1-sj)x0+sjTxn-1j, T is W-nonexpiansive and Eq. (5), we have:


Let n in Eq. (9), utilize Eq. (4) we obtain xj*-1-sjx0j+sjTxj*0, it implies that xj*=(1-sj)x0j+sjTxj*.

Finally, we show that x* is a fixed point of T. If y is any arbitrary point in H, we have:


Since xj*x*, then 2xj*-x*, x*-y0, (j).

So, based on the above inequality and Eq. (10), we get:


Setting y=Tx* in Eq. (11), we have:


Moreover, since xj*=(1-sj)x0j+sjTxj*, then:


So, in Eq. (13) as j, for limjsj=1 we have:


On the other hand, from Eq. (8) and since T is W-nonexpansive mapping, we have:




in turn:


Hence by Eq. (14), we have:


And, due to E is bounded, we have also:


So, by Eq. (12), we get x*-Tx*2=0, that is, x* is fixed point of T.

Now, we provide a method for computation of that fixed point x*.

Theorem 2.2 Suppose all conditions of the Theorem 2.1 are satisfied. Then the Krasnoselskij iteration {xn}0 given by:

xn+1=1-sxn+sTxn,    s{sj}jN,    n=0,1,2,,

converges to a fixed point of T.

Proof. Take the same x0E as Theorem 2.1, and such that W(x0,Tx0)1. From (w2) we get:


For W is triangular, so:


Since T is a W-admissible, from Eq. (20) we have:


Once again for W is triangular, by Eqs. (21) and (22) we have W(x1,Tx1)1.

Also, from (w2) we have W(x1,(1-s)x1+sTx1)=W(x1,x2)1.

Continuously, we can obtain:

Wxn,xm1,   n,mN,    n<m.



Also form Theorem 2.1, we know that x* is fixed point of T, and Based on all conditions of Theorem 2.1 are satisfied in Theorem 2.2, similarly we have:


From Eqs. (25) and (26), for W is triangular, then:


Also, by Eqs. (24) and (27), use W is triangular, we get:


Based on Eq. (28), since T is W-nonexpansive mapping, then we have:




Continuously, we have xn+1-x*x0-x*, which implies that {xn+1-x*} is monotone decrease bounded sequence. So limnxn+1-x* exists.

Next, we prove that xn-Txn0:


Also, on the other hand for any constant λ:


Adding Eq. (31) to Eq. (32) and let λ2(1-s)s , we may obtain:


It implies λ2xn-Txn2xn-x*2-xn+1-x*2.

Since limnxn+1-x* exists, in the above inequality let n, it results λ2xn-Txn20.

It means xn-Txn0.

For T is demicompact, it results that there exists a strongly convergent subsequence {xni}{xn} such that xnix*F(T), that is, xnix*0. Also xnx* is convergent, it implies that xnx*0. Hence that {xn} is convergent to x*F(T).
