Fixed point theorems for generalized contractions on partial metric spaces. (English) Zbl 1232.54039

Author’s abstract: We obtain two fixed point theorems for complete partial metric spaces that, on one hand, clarify and improve some results that have been recently published in Topology and its Applications, and on the other hand, generalize in several directions the celebrated Boyd and Wang fixed point theorem and Matkowski fixed point theorem, respectively.
