Common fixed points for four non-self mappings in partial metric spaces. (English) Zbl 1477.54139

The authors establish a common fixed point existence result (Theorem 2.1) for four mappings in a complete convex partial metric space in the sense of Takahashi. Various results from literature are obtained as particular cases of Theorem 2.1. The authors also provide an example to illustrate their main result.
