Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The origin of the fixed-point theory can be traced back to the middle of the 1980s, to the method of successive approximation for the solutions of certain differential equations. Indeed, fixed point theory lies at the intersection of functional analysis, topology, and applied mathematics. Due to its nature, fixed point theory has a wide application not only in mathematics but also in several qualitative sciences, such as economics, computer sciences, physics, engineering, and so on.

This Special Issue aims to collect significant contributions and advances in theoretical fixed point theory, as well as new and interesting applications in mathematics or other qualitative sciences.

We invite researchers to submit their significant results to this Special Issue with original, high-level papers. Potential topics include but are not limited to the following:

  • Metric fixed-point theorems;
  • Ulam–Hyers stability and well-posedness of fixed-point problems;
  • The computation of fixed points and applications;
  • Approximate solutions of fixed-point problems and applications;
  • Optimization and applications;
  • Ekeland variational principle with applications to fixed point theory;
  • Fractional (integral-differential) calculus;
  • Fixed points of multi-valued monotone operators and the solvability of a fractional integral inclusion;
  • Best proximity theory and its applications;
  • Iterative fixed-point theory;
  • Discrete fixed-point theory

In this paper, we prove a new fixed point theorem for a multi-valued mapping from a complete extended b-metric space U into the non empty closed and bounded subsets of U, which generalizes Nadler’s fixed point theorem. We also establish some fixed point results, which generalize our first result. Furthermore, we establish Mizoguchi–Takahashi’s type fixed point theorem for a multi-valued mapping from a complete extended b-metric space U into the non empty closed and bounded subsets of U that improves many existing results in the literature.

In this manuscript, we propose a new class of Picard-Jungck operators for a pair of mappings on complete metric spaces by taking into account of the C G -simulation function. Also, some new results for the existence of such operators for a pair of self mappings in the setting of metric spaces are obtained. Some nontrivial examples are presented to show the usability of the results. Full article

In this manuscript, we introduce a new notion: a Berinde type ( α , ψ ) -contraction mapping. Thereafter, we investigate not only the existence, but also the uniqueness of a fixed point of such mappings in the setting of right-complete quasi-metric spaces. The result, presented here, not only generalizes a number of existing results, but also unifies several ones on the topic in the literature. An application of nonlinear fractional differential equations is given. Full article

The ω -distance mapping is one of the important tools that can be used to get new contractions in fixed point theory. The aim of this paper is to use the concept of modified ω -distance mapping to introduce the notion of rational ( α , β ) φ - m ω contraction. We utilize our new notion to construct and formulate many fixed point results for a pair of two mappings defined on a nonempty set A. Our results modify many existing known results. In addition, we support our work by an example. Full article

The purpose of this paper is to define the notions of weak partial b-metric spaces and weak partial Hausdorff b-metric spaces along with the topology of weak partial b-metric space. Moreover, we present a generalization of Nadler’s theorem by using weak partial Hausdorff b-metric spaces in the context of a weak partial b-metric space. We present a non-trivial example which show the validity of our result and an application to nonlinear Volterra integral inclusion for the applicability purpose. Full article
