Weak and Strong Convergence Theorems for a Nonexpansive Mapping and an Equilibrium Problem

  • A. Tada
  • W. Takahashi


In this paper, we introduce two iterative sequences for finding a common element of the set of fixed points of a nonexpansive mapping and the set of solutions of an equilibrium problem in a Hilbert space. Then, we show that one of the sequences converges strongly and the other converges weakly.
