Abstract

In this paper, we first introduce the new notion of http://static-content.springer.com/image/art%3A10.1186%2F1029-242X-2012-206/MediaObjects/13660_2012_307_IEq1_HTML.gif -cyclic contraction and establish some new existence and convergence theorems of iterates of best proximity points for http://static-content.springer.com/image/art%3A10.1186%2F1029-242X-2012-206/MediaObjects/13660_2012_307_IEq1_HTML.gif -cyclic contractions. Some nontrivial examples illustrating our results are also given.
