A general iterative method for equilibrium problems and fixed point problems in Hilbert spaces. (English) Zbl 1158.47317

Summary: We introduce a general iterative scheme by the viscosity approximation method for finding a common element of the set of solutions of an equilibrium problem and the set of fixed points of a nonexpansive mapping in a Hilbert space. Our results improve and extend the corresponding ones announced by S.Takahashi and W.Takahashi in 2007, Marino and Xu in 2006, Combettes and Hirstoaga in 2005, and many others.
