This Special Issue on fixed point theory and its applications is dedicated to the memory of Professor William Arthur Kirk, who passed away on October 20, 2022.
Professor Kirk received his Bachelor’s degree from DePauw University in 1958 and his Ph.D. from the University of Missouri in 1962. From 1962 to 1967, he was an Assistant Professor at the University of California at Riverside. In 1967, he began to work as an Associate Professor at the University of Iowa, where he became a full professor in 1970.
Professor Kirk was an outstanding and internationally famous mathematician who made significant contributions to Nonlinear Functional Analysis, especially fixed-point theory. He is one of the founders of the modern theory of metric fixed-points, and his works deeply influenced the development of the field. He is known for Kirk’s Fixed-Point Theorem of 1964/1965 and for the Caristi-Kirk Fixed-Point Theorem of 1976. His achievements and leadership in the field were recognized by the title of Doctor Honoris Causa in 2004 from Maria Curie-Sklodowska University, Poland. Professor Kirk published three books and 177 journal articles. His book Topics in Metric Fixed Point Theory, written jointly with K. Goebel and published by Cambridge University Press in 1990, is now a classic in the area of fixed-point theory. Professor Kirk was the advisor of thirteen PhD students.
This Special Issue aims to seek out high-quality articles from researchers in the fixed point theory and other areas of nonlinear functional analysis close to the research activities of Professor Kirk.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Symmetry is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
