**General Introduction**

**1.1 Introduction**

The contributions of this thesis fall within the general area of nonlinear functional analysis, an area with vast amount of applicability in recent years, as such becoming the object of an increasing amount of study. We devote our

attention to three important topics within the area.

1. Approximation of solution of nonlinear equations of Hammerstein type.

2. Iterative algorithms for common xed points of a family of mappings

and,

3. Algorithms for common solutions of common xed point problems for a family of nonlinear maps; variational inequality problems; and equilibrium problems.

1.2 Iterative algorithms for Hammerstein equations

A nonlinear integral equation of Hammerstein type (see, e.g., Hammerstein [102] ) is one of the form

u(x) +

Z

k(x; y)f(y; u(y))dy = h(x) (1.2.1)

where dy is a -nite measure on the measure space

; the real kernel k

is dened on

; f is a real-valued function dened on

R and is,

General Introduction 2

in general, nonlinear and h is a given function on

. If we now dene an

operator K by

Kv(x) =

Z

k(x; y)v(y)dy; x 2

;

and the so-called superposition or Nemytskii operator F by Fu(y) := f(y; u(y)) then, the integral equation (1.2.1) can be put in operator theoretic form as follows:

u + KFu = 0; (1.2.2)

where, without loss of generality, we have taken h 0. Interest in equation (1.2.2) stems mainly from the fact that several problems that arise in differential equations, for instance, elliptic boundary value problems whose linear parts possess Green’s functions can, as a rule, be transformed into the form (1.2.2). Among these, we mention the problem of the forced oscillations of nite amplitude of a pendulum (see, e.g., Pascali and Sburlan [152] , Chapter IV).

Example 1.2.1 The amplitude of oscillation v(t) is a solution of the problem

d2v

dt2 + a2 sin v(t) = z(t); t 2 [0; 1] v(0) = v(1) = 0;

(1.2.3)

where the driving force z(t) is periodical and odd. The constant a 6= 0 depends on the length of the pendulum and on gravity. Since the Green’s function for the problem

v

00(t) = 0; v(0) = v(1) = 0;

is the triangular function

k(t; x) =

t(1 x); 0 t x;

x(1 t); x t 1;

problem (1.2.3) is equivalent to the nonlinear integral equation

v(t) =

Z 1

0

k(t; x)[z(x) a2 sin v(x)] dx: (1.2.4)

If Z 1

0

k(t; x)z(x)dx = g(t) and v(t) + g(t) = u(t);

then (1.2.4) can be written as the Hammerstein equation

u(t) +

Z 1

0

k(t; x)f(x; u(x))dx = 0;

where f(x; u(x)) = a2 sin[u(x) g(x)] .

General Introduction 3

Equations of Hammerstein type play a crucial role in the theory of optimal control systems and in automation and network theory (see, e.g., Dolezale [90] ). Several existence and uniqueness theorems have been proved for equations of the Hammerstein type (see, e.g., Brezis and Browder [20, 21, 22] , Browder [29] , Browder and De Figueiredo [33] , Browder and Gupta [32] , Chepanovich [47] , De Figueiredo [91] ).
