Three-step iterative schemes with errors for two and three nonexpansive maps are introduced in the paper. Finding common fixed points of maps acting on a Banach space is a problem that often arises in applied mathematics. In fact, many algorithms have been introduced for different classes of maps with nonempty set of common fixed points [see, e.g., N. Shahzad, Nonlinear Anal. 61, No. 6 (A), 1031–1039 (2005; Zbl 1089.47058)]. Let be a nonempty convex subset of a real Banach space and let be nonexpansive maps . The following three-step iterative scheme with errors is considered: , , , , for all , where is a bounded sequence in and , , are sequences in satisfying , , .
Under suitable conditions, the weak and strong convergence of the above scheme to a common fixed point of nonexpansive maps in a uniformly convex Banach space is proved. By modifying the iteration schemes, the corresponding results can be proved for asymptotically nonexpansive mappings with suitable changes. The convergence theorems improve and generalize some important results in the current literature.
