Let E be a real q-uniformly smooth Banach space with constant dq, q2. Let T:EE and G:EE be a nonexpansive map and an η-strongly accretive map which is also κ-Lipschitzian, respectively. Let {λn} be a real sequence in [0,1] that satisfies the following condition: C1:limλn=0 and λn=. For δ(0,(qη/dqkq)1/(q1)) and σ(0,1), define a sequence {xn} iteratively in E by x0E, xn+1=Tλn+1xn=(1σ)xn+σ[Txnδλn+1G(Txn)], n0. Then, {xn} converges strongly to the unique solution x* of the variational inequality problem VI(G,K) (search for x*K such that Gx*,jq(yx*)0 for all yK), where K:=Fix(T)={xE:Tx=x}. A convergence theorem related to finite family of nonexpansive maps is also proved.
