Cite this article as: Naidu, S.V.R. Czechoslovak Mathematical Journal (2003) 53: 205. doi:10.1023/A:1022991929004 Abstract A generalization is obtained for some of the fixed point theorems of Khan, Swaleh and Sessa, Pathak and Rekha Sharma, and Sastry and Babu for a self-map on a metric space, which involve the idea of alteration of distances between points.
