In this paper, we study the relationship of some projection-type methods for monotone nonlinear variational inequalities and investigate some improvements. If we refer to the Goldstein-Levitin-Polyak projection method as the explicit method, then the proximal point method is the corresponding implicit method. Consequently, the Korpelevich extragradient method can be viewed as a prediction-correction method, which uses the explicit method in the prediction step and the implicit method in the correction step. Based on the analysis in this paper, we propose a modified prediction-correction method by using better prediction and correction stepsizes. Preliminary numerical experiments indicate that the improvements are significant.
