A fixed point theorem for asymptotically nonexpansive type mappings in uniformly convex Banach spaces

Original Research Paper


Let us consider two nonempty subsets A and B of a uniformly convex Banach space X. Let \(T:A\cup B\rightarrow A\cup B\) be a mapping such that \(T(A)\subseteq A,\,T(B)\subseteq B\) and there is a sequence \(\{k_n\}\) in \([1,\infty )\), with \(k_n\rightarrow 1\), satisfying \(\Vert T^nx-T^ny\Vert \le k_n\Vert x-y\Vert \), for all \(x\in A\) and \(y\in B\). We investigate sufficient conditions for the existence of fixed points x in A and y in B in such a way that the distance between x and y is optimum in some sense. Our main result provides a natural and simple proof for a particular case of Rajesh and Veeramani (Numer Funct Anal Optim 37:80–91, 2016) fixed point theorem for asymptotically relatively nonexpansive mappings.
