A convex optimization problem for a strictly convex objective function over the fixed point set of a nonexpansive mapping includes a network bandwidth allocation problem, which is one of the central issues in modern communication networks. We devised an iterative algorithm, called a fixed point optimization algorithm, for solving the convex optimization problem and conducted a convergence analysis on the algorithm. The analysis guarantees that the algorithm, with slowly diminishing step-size sequences, weakly converges to a unique solution to the problem. Moreover, we apply the proposed algorithm to a network bandwidth allocation problem and show its effectiveness.
