Original Paper


In this paper, we study strong convergence of some proximal-type algorithms to a solution of split minimization problem in complete p-uniformly convex metric spaces. We also analyse asymptotic behaviour of the sequence generated by Halpern-type proximal point algorithm and extend it to approximate a common solution of a finite family of minimization problems in the setting of complete p-uniformly convex metric spaces. Furthermore, numerical experiments of our algorithms in comparison with other algorithms are given to show the applicability of our results.
