Numerous papers/books(citation needed) refer to the operator $$A_\lambda := \lambda AR_\lambda (A) = \lambda^2 R_\lambda(A) - \lambda I$$ where $R_\lambda(A)=(I+\lambda A)^{-1}$ is the resolvent, as Yosida approximation without indicating the original source of it.

Can somebody provide the exact source to a Yosida's paper where this operator was originally introduced?


...It is well known that the celebrated Hille-Yosida theorem, discovered independently by Hille [1] and Yosida [2], gave the first characterization of the infinitesimal generator of a strongly continuous semigroup of contractions. This was the beginning of a systematic development of the theory of semigroups of bounded linear operators. The bounded linear operator $A_λ$ appearing in the sufficiency part of Yosida’s proof of this theorem is called the Yosida approximation of $A$... ([3] preface i)
