An application of the w-weak generalized contractions theorem

  • Maria DobriţoiuEmail author


Using the w-weak generalized contractions theorem of Wongyat and Sintunavarat (Adv Diff Equ 2017:211, 2017) and their idea to apply this theorem to the nonlinear integral equations to obtain an existence and uniqueness result, in this paper we present another application of this theorem to a nonlinear Fredholm integral equation with modified argument, which completes the study of this equation.
