Metric fixed point theory for multivalued mappings. (English) Zbl 0972.47041
The paper provides some new results in the fixed point theory of non-expansive and contractive set-valued mappings defined on subsets of a metric or Banach space with a special attention paid to the maps satisfying suitable inwardness conditions. In particular, the Kirk-Massa theorem on the existence of fixed points of a nonexpansive self-map is extended to the case of non-self inward maps. The precise discussion of the Reich problem concerning the existence of fixed point of generalized contractions of the Browder type is included. Finally, the author studies random contractive and nonexpansive set-valued maps and discusses in detail the existence of their fixed points. The paper may be also considered as a well-prepared survey in the field; it provides a number of examples and counterexamples, open problems as well as extensive bibliography in the subject.
