Some Fixed Point Theorems in Metric Spaces by Altering Distances

  • S. V. R. Naidu
Article

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.
