Normal structure and fixed points of nonexpansive maps in general topological spaces. (English) Zbl 1012.47030
The authors prove a well-known fixed point theorem of Kirk for nonexpansive maps in general topological spaces. They introduce the idea of $$p$$-normal structure and the notion of a $$t$$-symmetric function. Here $$t$$ is the topology for the topological space. A set of suitable examples are given to illustrate the new terms introduced.
