On the orbits of Open image in new window -closure points of ultimately nonexpansive mappings

Open Access
Research Article


Let Open image in new window be a closed subset of a Banach space and Open image in new window an ultimately nonexpansive commutative semigroup of continuous selfmappings. If the Open image in new window -closure of Open image in new window is nonempty, then the closure of the orbit of any Open image in new window -closure point is a commutative topological group.
