In this paper, we introduce two iterative schemes by a modified Krasnoselskii-Mann algorithm for finding a common element of the set of solutions of equilibrium problems and the set of fixed points of multivalued nonexpansive mappings in Hilbert space. We prove that the sequence generated by the proposed method converges strongly to a common element of the set of solutions of equilibruim problems and the set of fixed points of multivalued nonexpansive mappings which is also the minimum-norm element of the above two sets. Finally, some applications of our results to optimization problems with constraint and the split feasibility problem are given. No compactness assumption is made. The methods in the paper are novel and different from those in early and recent literature.
