Multi-valued non-self-mappings on convex metric spaces. (English) Zbl 1078.47015

The authors prove common fixed point theorems for a pair of multi-valued non-self-mappings in metrically convex metric spaces. Several interesting corollaries are derived. These theorems extend most of the results proved earlier.
