Existing viscosity approximation schemes have been extensively investigated to solve equilibrium problems, variational inequalities, and fixed-point problems, and most of which contain that contraction is a self-mapping defined on certain bounded closed convex subset C of Hilbert spaces H for standard viscosity approximation. In particular, if the zero point does not belong to C, the standard viscosity approximation cannot be applied to solve the minimum norm fixed point of some nonlinear operators. In this paper, we introduce three generalized viscosity approximation algorithms with boundary point method for quasi-nonexpansive mappings, which overcome this deficiency above. These three proposed algorithms have simple expressions; moreover, they are easy to implement in the actual computation process. Especially, we can find the minimum norm fixed point of quasi-nonexpansive mappings under contraction is a zero operator.
