In this paper, using the concept of Bregman distance, we introduce a new Bregman subgradient extragradient method for solving equilibrium and common fixed point problems in a real reflexive Banach space. The algorithm is designed, such that the stepsize is chosen without prior knowledge of the Lipschitz constants. We also prove a strong convergence result for the sequence that is generated by our algorithm under mild conditions. We apply our result to solving variational inequality problems, and finally, we give some numerical examples to illustrate the efficiency and accuracy of the algorithm. Full article

In this paper, two types of set-valued symmetric generalized strong vector quasi-equilibrium problems with variable ordering structures are discussed. By using the concept of cosmically upper continuity rather than the one of upper semicontinuity for cone-valued mapping, some existence theorems of solutions are established under suitable assumptions of cone-continuity and cone-convexity for the equilibrium mappings. Moreover, the results of compactness for solution sets are proven. As applications, some existence results of strong saddle points are obtained. The main results obtained in this paper unify and improve some recent works in the literature. Full article

In this paper, we present the mathematical point of view of our research group regarding the multi-robot systems evolving in a multi-temporal way. We solve the minimum multi-time volume problem as optimal control problem for a group of planar micro-robots moving in the same direction at different partial speeds. We are motivated to solve this problem because a similar minimum-time optimal control problem is now in vogue for micro-scale and nano-scale robotic systems. Applying the (weak and strong) multi-time maximum principle, we obtain necessary conditions for optimality and that are used to guess a candidate control policy. The complexity of finding this policy for arbitrary initial conditions is dominated by the computation of a planar convex hull. We pointed this idea by applying the technique of multi-time Hamilton-Jacobi-Bellman PDE. Our results can be extended to consider obstacle avoidance by explicit parameterization of all possible optimal control policies. Full article

Mann’s iteration process for finding a fixed point of a nonexpansive mapping in a Banach space is considered. This process is known to converge weakly in some class of infinite-dimensional Banach spaces (e.g., uniformly convex Banach spaces with a Fréchet differentiable norm), but not strongly even in a Hilbert space. Strong convergence is therefore a nontrivial problem. In this paper we provide certain conditions either on the underlying space or on the mapping under investigation so as to guarantee the strong convergence of Mann’s iteration process and its variants.

In this work, we investigate the modular version of the Ekeland variational principle (EVP) in the context of variable exponent sequence spaces p ( · ) . The core obstacle in the development of a modular version of the EVP is the failure of the triangle inequality for the module. It is the lack of this inequality, which is indispensable in the establishment of the classical EVP, that has hitherto prevented a successful treatment of the modular case. As an application, we establish a modular version of Caristi’s fixed point theorem in p ( · ) . Full article

In this paper, a new relaxation bounding method is proposed for a class of linear multiplicative programs. Although the 2 p 1 variable is introduced in the construction of equivalence problem, the branch process of the algorithm is only carried out in p dimensional space. In addition, a super-rectangular reduction technique is also given to greatly improve the convergence rate. Furthermore, we construct an output-space branch-and-bound reduction algorithm based on solving a series of linear programming sub-problems, and prove the convergence and computational complexity of the algorithm. Finally, to verify the feasibility and effectiveness of the algorithm, we carried out a series of numerical experiments and analyzed the advantages and disadvantages of the algorithm by numerical results.

The connectedness and path connectedness of the solution sets to vector optimization problems is an important and interesting study in optimization theories and applications. Most papers involving the direction established the connectedness and connectedness for the solution sets of vector optimization problems or vector equilibrium problems by means of the linear scalarization method rather than the nonlinear scalarization method. The aim of the paper is to deal with the connectedness and the path connectedness for the weak efficient solution set to a vector optimization problem by using the nonlinear scalarization method. Firstly, the union relationship between the weak efficient solution set to the vector optimization problem and the solution sets to a series of parametric scalar minimization problems, is established. Then, some properties of the solution sets of scalar minimization problems are investigated. Finally, by using the union relationship, the connectedness and the path connectedness for the weak efficient solution set of the vector optimization problem are obtained. Full article

The inverse problem is one of the four major problems in computational mathematics. There is an inverse problem in medical image reconstruction and radiotherapy that is called the multiple-sets split equality problem. The multiple-sets split equality problem is a unified form of the split feasibility problem, split equality problem, and split common fixed point problem. In this paper, we present two iterative algorithms for solving it. The suggested algorithms are based on the gradient method with a selection technique. Based on this technique, we only need to calculate one projection in each iteration. Full article

Appl. 2015, 8, 1005–1013) furnished the notion of rectangular b-metric pace (RBMS) by taking the place of the binary sum of triangular inequality in the definition of a b-metric space ternary sum and proved some results for Banach and Kannan contractions in such space. In this paper, we achieved fixed-point results for a pair of F-dominated mappings fulfilling a generalized rational F-dominated contractive condition in the better framework of complete rectangular b-metric spaces complete rectangular b-metric spaces. Some new fixed-point results with graphic contractions for a pair of graph-dominated mappings on rectangular b-metric space have been obtained. Some examples are given to illustrate our conclusions. New results in ordered spaces, partial b-metric space, dislocated metric space, dislocated b-metric space, partial metric space, b-metric space, rectangular metric spaces, and metric space can be obtained as corollaries of our results.

In this paper, we propose a new global optimization algorithm, which can better solve a class of linear fractional programming problems on a large scale. First, the original problem is equivalent to a nonlinear programming problem: It introduces p auxiliary variables. At the same time, p new nonlinear equality constraints are added to the original problem. By classifying the coefficient symbols of all linear functions in the objective function of the original problem, four sets are obtained, which are I i + , I i , J i + and J i . Combined with the multiplication rule of real number operation, the objective function and constraint conditions of the equivalent problem are linearized into a lower bound linear relaxation programming problem. Our lower bound determination method only needs e i T x + f i 0 , and there is no need to convert molecules to non-negative forms in advance for some special problems. A output-space branch and bound algorithm based on solving the linear programming problem is proposed and the convergence of the algorithm is proved. Finally, in order to illustrate the feasibility and effectiveness of the algorithm, we have done a series of numerical experiments, and show the advantages and disadvantages of our algorithm by the numerical results.

Two iterative algorithms are suggested for approximating a solution of the split common fixed point problem involved in pseudo-contractive operators without Lipschitz assumption. We prove that the sequence generated by the first algorithm converges weakly to a solution of the split common fixed point problem and the second one converges strongly. Moreover, the sequence { x n } generated by Algorithm 3 strongly converges to z = proj S 0 , which is the minimum-norm solution of problem (1). Numerical examples are included. Full article

In this paper, based on the very recent work by Nandal et al. (Nandal, A.; Chugh, R.; Postolache, M. Iteration process for fixed point problems and zeros of maximal monotone operators. Symmetry 2019, 11, 655.), we propose a new generalized viscosity implicit rule for finding a common element of the fixed point sets of a finite family of nonexpansive mappings and the sets of zeros of maximal monotone operators. Utilizing the main result, we first propose and investigate a new general system of generalized equilibrium problems, which includes several equilibrium and variational inequality problems as special cases, and then we derive an implicit iterative method to solve constrained multiple-set split convex feasibility problem. We further combine forward-backward splitting method and generalized viscosity implicit rule for solving monotone inclusion problem. Moreover, we apply the main result to solve convex minimization problem. Full article

In this paper, we noticed that the existence of fixed points of F-contractions, in F -metric space, can be ensured without the third condition (F3) imposed on the Wardowski function F : ( 0 , ) R . We obtain fixed points as well as common fixed-point results for Reich-type F-contractions for both single and set-valued mappings in F -metric spaces. To show the usability of our results, we present two examples. Also, an application to functional equations is presented. The application shows the role of fixed-point theorems in dynamic programming, which is widely used in computer programming and optimization. Our results extend and generalize the previous results in the existing literature. Full article

In this paper, we study a three step iterative scheme to approximate fixed points of Suzuki’s generalized non-expansive mappings. We establish some weak and strong convergence results for such mappings in uniformly convex Banach spaces. Further, we show numerically that the considered iterative scheme converges faster than some other known iterations for Suzuki’s generalized non-expansive mappings. To support our claim, we give an illustrative numerical example and approximate fixed points of such mappings using Matlab program. Our results are new and generalize several relevant results in the literature. Full article

In 2014, Cui and Wang constructed an algorithm for demicontractive operators and proved some weak convergence theorems of their proposed algorithm to show the existence of solutions for the split common fixed point problem without using the operator norm. By Cui and Wang’s motivation, in 2015, Boikanyo constructed also a new algorithm for demicontractive operators and obtained some strong convergence theorems for this problem without using the operator norm. In this paper, we consider a viscosity iterative algorithm in Boikanyo’s algorithm to approximate to a solution of this problem and prove some strong convergence theorems of our proposed algorithm to a solution of this problem. Finally, we apply our main results to some applications, signal processing and others and compare our algorithm with five algorithms such as Cui and Wang’s algorithm, Boikanyo’s algorithm, forward-backward splitting algorithm and the fast iterative shrinkage-thresholding algorithm (FISTA).

In this paper, based on the Yamada iteration, we propose an iteration algorithm to find a common element of the set of fixed points of a nonexpansive mapping and the set of zeros of an inverse strongly-monotone mapping. We obtain a weak convergence theorem in Hilbert space. In particular, the set of zero points of an inverse strongly-monotone mapping can be transformed into the solution set of the variational inequality problem. Further, based on this result, we also obtain some new weak convergence theorems which are used to solve the equilibrium problem and the split feasibility problem. Full article
