Fixed Point Theory and Applications 2013, 2013:76  doi:10.1186/1687-1812-2013-76

Published: 28 March 2013


In this paper, we prove that the convergence of a new iteration and S-iteration can be used to approximate the fixed points of contractive-like operators. We also prove some data dependence results for these new iteration and S-iteration schemes for contractive-like operators. Our results extend and improve some known results in the literature.
