We introduce and study a new hybrid projection algorithm for finding a common element of the set of solutions of an equilibrium problem, the set of common fixed points of relatively quasi-nonexpansive mappings, and the set of solutions of the variational inequality for an inverse-strongly-monotone operator in a Banach space. Under suitable assumptions, we show a strong convergence theorem. Using this result, we obtain some applications in a Banach space. The results obtained in this paper extend and improve the several recent results in this area.
