We prove strong and weak convergence theorems for a new resolvent of maximal monotone operators in a Banach space and give an estimate of the convergence rate of the algorithm. Finally, we apply our convergence theorem to the convex minimization problem. The result present in this paper extend and improve the corresponding result of Ibaraki and Takahashi (2007), and Kim and Xu (2005).
