Let E be a real Banach space with norm $\parallel \parallel $. Then an operator $A\subset E\times E$ with domain D(A) and range R(A) is said to be accretive if $\parallel {x}_{1}-{x}_{2}\parallel \le \parallel {x}_{1}-{x}_{2}+r({y}_{1}-{y}_{2})\parallel $ for all ${y}_{i}\in A{x}_{i}$, $i=1,2$, and $r>0$. An accretive operator $A\subset E\times E$ is m-accretive if $R(I+rA)=E$ for all $r>0$, where I is the identity. If A is accretive, we can define, for each positive r, a single-valued mapping ${J}_{r}:R(I+rA)\to D\left(A\right)$ by ${J}_{r}={(I+rA)}^{-1}$. It is called the resolvent of A. In [ibid. 75, 287-292 (1980; Zbl 0437.47047)], *S. Reich* proved the following theorem: Let E be a uniformly smooth Banach space, and let $A\subset E\times E$ be m-accretive. If $0\in R\left(A\right)$, then for each x in E the strong ${lim}_{r\to \infty}{J}_{r}x$ exists and belongs to ${A}^{-1}0$. He remarked also that the assumption that A is m-accretive can be replaced with the assumption that cl(D(A)), the closure of D(A), is convex, and that A satisfies the range condition: $R(I+rA)\supset cl\left(D\right(A\left)\right)$ for all $r>0\xb7$

In this paper we first prove a theorem that generalizes simultaneously the above results. Furthermore, we generalize another Reich strong convergence theorem asserting that the strong ${lim}_{r\to 0}{J}_{r}x$ exists in uniformly convex and uniformly smooth Banach spaces. Though our proofs are similar to those in the cited paper they are slightly simple on account of using Banach limits.
