Suppose that is a real normed linear space, is a nonempty convex subset of , is a Lipschitzian mapping, and is a fixed point of . For given , suppose that the sequence is the Mann iterative sequence defined by , where is a sequence in [0, 1], , . We prove that the sequence strongly converges to if and only if there exists a strictly increasing function with such that .
