Summary: We introduce a hybrid iterative scheme for finding a common element of the set of solutions of an equilibrium problem and the set of fixed points of finitely many nonexpansive mappings. We prove that the approximate solution converges strongly to a solution of a class of variational inequalities under some mild conditions, which is the optimality condition for some minimization problem. We also give some comments on the results of S. Plubtieng
and R. Punpaeng
[J. Math. Anal. Appl. 336, No. 1, 455–469 (2007; Zbl 1127.47053
)]. Results obtained in this paper may be viewed as an improvement and refinement of the previously known results in this area.
