## Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to introduce a new iteration scheme and prove a strong convergence theorem for finding a common element of the fixed point set of a nonexpansive mapping, the solution set of variational inequalities and the solution set of equilibrium problems. Under certain conditions on parameters, we show that the iterative sequences generated by the scheme strongly converge to a common element in a real Hilbert space.
