Fixed point results for set-valued contractions by altering distances in complete metric spaces. (English) Zbl 1158.54319
Summary: Nadler’s contraction principle has led to fixed point theory of set-valued contraction in non-linear analysis. Inspired by the results of Nadler, the fixed point theory of set-valued contraction has been further developed in different directions by many authors, in particular, by Reich, Mizoguchi-Takahashi, Feng-Liu and many others. In the present paper, the concept of generalized contractions for set-valued maps in metric spaces is introduced and the existence of fixed point for such a contraction are guaranteed by certain conditions. Our first result extends and generalizes the Nadler, Feng-Liu and Klim-Wardowski theorems and the second result is different from the Reich and Mizoguchi-Takahashi results. As a consequence, we derive some results related to fixed point of set-valued maps satisfying certain conditions of integral type.
