Fixed Points of Weakly Contractive Maps and Boundedness of Orbits
Fixed Point Theory and Applications volume 2007, Article number: 020962 (2007)
We discuss weakly contractive maps on complete metric spaces. Following three methods of generalizing the Banach contraction principle, we obtain some fixed point theorems under some relatively weaker and more general contractive conditions.
