For a monotone operator T, we shall show weak convergence of Rockafellar's proximal point algorithm to some zero of T and strong convergence of the perturbed version of Rockafellar's to PZu under some relaxed conditions, where PZ is the metric projection from H onto Z=T10. Moreover, our proof techniques are simpler than some existed results.
