Let E be a smooth Banach space with a norm . Let V(x,y)=x2+y22x,Jy for any x,yE, where , stands for the duality pair and J is the normalized duality mapping. With respect to this bifunction V(,), a generalized nonexpansive mapping and a V-strongly nonexpansive mapping are defined in E. In this paper, using the properties of generalized nonexpansive mappings, we prove convergence theorems for common zero points of a maximal monotone operator and a V-strongly nonexpansive mapping.
