Fixed point theorems for multi-valued contractions in complete metric spaces.
(English)
[J] J. Math. Anal. Appl. 348, No. 1, 499-507 (2008). ISSN 0022-247X

Let $(X,d)$ be a metric space and $\text{Cl}(X)$ the collection of nonempty closed sets of $X$. The main results of this paper are two fixed point theorems for multivalued functions. The following theorem is a generalization of Theorem 1 of {\it N. Mizoguchi} and {\it W. Takahashi} [J. Math. Anal. Appl. 141, No.~1, 177--188 (1989; Zbl 0688.54028)]. Theorem A. Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space and $T: X\to \text{Cl}(X)$ be a mapping of $X$ into itself. If there exists a function $\varphi: [0,\infty)\to (0,1)$ satisfying $\limsup\varphi*r(< 1$ for each $t\in [0,\infty)$ and $r\to t+$ such that for any $x\in X$ there exists $y\in T(x)$ satisfying the following two conditions: $d(x,y)\le (2-\varphi(d(x,y))) D(x,Tx)$ and $D(y,T(y))\le \varphi(d(x,y)) d(x,y)$, then $T$ has a fixed point in $X$ provided $f(x)= D(x,T(x))$ is lower-semicontinuous. The following theorem is a generalization of Theorem 1 [op. cit.], of Theorem 2 of {\it Y. Feng} and {\it S. Liu} [J. Math. Anal. Appl. 317, No.~1, 103--112 (2006; Zbl 1094.47049)] and {\it D. Klim} and {\it D. Wardowski} [J. Math. Anal. Appl. 334, No. 1, 132--139 (2007; Zbl 1133.54025)].\par Theorem B. Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space and $T: X\to \text{Cl}(X)$ be a mapping of $X$ into itself. If there exists a function $\varphi: [0,\infty)\to (0,1)$ and a nondecreasing function $b: [0,\infty)\to [b,1)$, $b> 0$, such that $\varphi(t)< b(t)$ and $\limsup_{t\to r+}\,\varphi(t)< \limsup_{t\to r+} b(t)$ for all $t\in [0,\infty)$, and for any $x\in X$ there exists $y\in T(x)$ satisfying the following conditions: $b(d(x,y)) d(x,y)\le D(x,Tx)$ and $D(y,T(y))\le \varphi(d(x, y))$ $d(x,y)$, then $T$ has a fixed point in $X$ provided $f(x)= D(x,T(x))$ is lower-semicontinuous. In the last part of the paper the author constructs two examples which show that the results from this paper are genuine generalizations of the results of Mizaguchi and Takahasi, Feng and Liu and Klim and Wardowski.
