We propose a new discrete version of nonlinear oscillator with damping dynamical system governed by a general maximal monotone operator. We show the weak convergence of solutions and their weighted averages to a zero of a maximal monotone operator 𝐴 . We also prove some strong convergence theorems with additional assumptions on 𝐴 . This iterative scheme gives also an extension of the proximal point algorithm for the approximation of a zero of a maximal monotone operator. These results extend previous results by Brézis and Lions (1978), Lions (1978) as well as Djafari Rouhani and H. Khatibzadeh (2008).
