The purpose of this paper is to solve the minimization problem of finding x such that x=argminxΓx2, where Γ stands for the intersection set of the solution set of the equilibrium problem and the fixed points set of a nonexpansive mapping. We first present two new composite algorithms (one implicit and one explicit). Further, we prove that the proposed composite algorithms converge strongly to x.
