On fixed points of quasi-contraction type multifunctions. (English) Zbl 1243.54062

Summary: D. Ilić and V. Rakočević [Appl. Math. Lett. 22, No. 5, 728–731 (2009; Zbl 1179.54060)] proved that quasi-contraction maps on normal cone metric spaces have a unique fixed point. Then, Kadelburg, Radenović and Rakočević generalized their results by considering an additional assumption [Z. Kadelburg, S. Radenović and V. Rakočević, Appl. Math. Lett. 22, No. 11, 1674–1679 (2009; Zbl 1180.54056)]. Also, they proved that quasi-contraction maps on cone metric spaces have the property (P) whenever \(\lambda\in(0,\tfrac 12)\). Later, Haghi, Rezapour and Shahzad proved same results without the additional assumption and for \(\lambda\in(0,1)\) by providing a new technical proof [Sh. Rezapour, R.H. Haghi and N. Shahzad, Appl. Math. Lett. 23, No. 4, 498–502 (2010; Zbl 1206.54061)]. In 2011, D. Wardowski published a paper [Appl. Math. Lett. 24, No. 3, 275–278 (2011; Zbl 1206.54067)] and tried to test fixed point results for multifunctions on normal cone metric spaces. Of course, he used a special view in his results. Recently, A. Amini-Harandi [Appl. Math. Lett. 24, No. 11, 1791–1794 (2011; Zbl 1230.54034)] proved a result on the existence of fixed points of set-valued quasi-contraction maps in metric spaces by using the technique of Rezapour et al. [Zbl 1206.54061]. But, like Kadelburg et al. [Zbl 1180.54056], he could prove it only for \(\lambda\in(0,\tfrac 12)\).
In this work, we prove again the main result of Amini-Harandi [loc. cit.] by using a simple method. Also, we introduce quasi-contraction type multifunctions and show that the main result of Amini-Harandi holds for quasi-contraction type multifunctions.
