## Abstract

In this paper a class of self-mappings on cone Banach spaces which have at least one fixed point is considered. More precisely, for a closed and convex subset C of a cone Banach space with the norm ${\parallel x\parallel}_{C}=d(x,0)$, if there exist *a*, *b*, *c*, *r* and $T:C\to C$ satisfies the conditions $0\u2a7d{\mathrm{\Phi}}_{q}(r)<{\mathrm{\Phi}}_{q}(a)+2({\mathrm{\Phi}}_{q}(b)+{\mathrm{\Phi}}_{q}(c))$ and $a{\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(d(Tx,Ty))+b{\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(d(x,Tx))+c{\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(d(y,Ty))\u2a7dr{\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(d(x,y))$ for all $x,y\in C$, then *T* has at least one fixed point.

## 1 Introduction

*K*-metric spaces by replacing real numbers with a cone

*K*in the metric function, that is, $d:X\times X\to K$. Without mentioning the papers of Lin and Rzepecki, in 2007, Huang and Zhang [2] announced the notion of cone metric spaces (CMS) by replacing real numbers with an ordering Banach space. In that paper, they also discussed some properties of the convergence of sequences and proved the fixed point theorems of a contractive mapping for cone metric spaces: Any mapping

*T*of a complete cone metric space

*X*into itself that satisfies, for some $0\le k<1$, the inequality

for all $x,y\in X$ has a unique fixed point. Recently, many results on fixed point theorems have been extended to cone metric spaces in [3, 4]. Karapınar [5] extended some of well known results in the fixed point theory to cone Banach spaces which were defined and used in [6] where the existence of fixed points for self-mappings on cone Banach spaces were investigated.

In this study, we prove the fixed point theorems of ${\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}$ operator for cone Banach spaces.

Throughout this paper *E* means Banach algebra, $E:=(E,\parallel \cdot \parallel )$ stands for real Banach space. Let $P:={P}_{E}$ always be a closed nonempty subset of *E*. *P* is called a cone if $ax+by\in P$ for all $x,y\in P$ and nonnegative real numbers *a*, *b* where $P\cap (-P)=\{0\}$ and $P\ne 0$. Given a cone $P\subset E$, we define a partial ordering ≤ with respect to *P* by $x\le y$ if and only if $y-x\in P$. We will write $x<y$ to indicate that $x\le y$ but $x\ne y$, while $x\ll y$ will stand for $y-x\in intP$, where int*P* denotes the interior of *P*. The cone *P* is called normal if there is a number $K>0$ such that $0\le x\le y$ implies $\parallel x\parallel \le K\parallel y\parallel $ for all $x,y\in E$. The least positive number satisfying the above is called the normal constant.

*E*is a real Banach space, then

*P*is a cone in

*E*with $intP\ne \mathrm{\varnothing}$, and ≤ is partial ordering with respect to

*P*. Let

*X*be a nonempty set, a function $d:X\times X\to E$. is called a cone metric on

*X*if it satisfies the following conditions with respect to [2]:

- (i)
$0\le d(x,y)$ for all $x,y\in X$ and $d(x,y)=0$ if and only if $x=y$,

- (ii)
$d(x,y)=d(y,x)$ for all $x,y\in X$,

- (iii)
$d(x,y)\le d(x,z)+d(z,y)$ for all $x,y,z\in X$.

Then $(X,d)$ is called a cone metric space (CMS).

**Definition 1** (see [5])

*X*be a vector space over ℝ. Suppose the mapping ${\parallel \cdot \parallel}_{C}:X\to E$ satisfies

- (N1)
${\parallel x\parallel}_{C}\ge 0$ for all $x\in X$,

- (N2)
${\parallel x\parallel}_{C}=0$ if and only if $x=0$,

- (N3)
${\parallel x+y\parallel}_{C}\le {\parallel x\parallel}_{C}+{\parallel y\parallel}_{C}$ for all $x,y\in X$,

- (N4)
${\parallel kx\parallel}_{C}=|k|{\parallel x\parallel}_{C}$ for all $k\in \mathbb{R}$ and for all $x\in X$,

then ${\parallel \cdot \parallel}_{C}$ is called a cone norm on *X*, and the pair $(X,{\parallel \cdot \parallel}_{C})$ is called a cone normed space (CNS).

**Definition 2** (see [5])

*X*. Then

- (i)
${\{{x}_{n}\}}_{n\ge 1}$ converges to

*x*whenever for every $c\in E$ with $0\ll c$, there is a natural number*N*such that ${\parallel {x}_{n}-x\parallel}_{C}\ll c$ for all $n\ge N$. It is denoted by ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}{x}_{n}=x$ or ${x}_{n}\to x$; - (ii)
${\{{x}_{n}\}}_{n\ge 1}$ is a Cauchy sequence whenever for every $c\in E$ with $0\ll c$, there is a natural number

*N*, such that ${\parallel {x}_{n}-{x}_{m}\parallel}_{C}\ll c$ for all $n,m\ge N$; - (iii)
$(X,{\parallel \cdot \parallel}_{C})$ is a complete cone normed space if every Cauchy sequence is convergent.

Complete cone normed spaces will be called cone Banach spaces.

**Lemma 3**

*Let*$(X,{\parallel \cdot \parallel}_{C})$

*be a CNS*,

*P*

*be a normal cone with normal constant*

*K*,

*and*$\{{x}_{n}\}$

*be a sequence in*

*X*.

*Then*

- (i)
*the sequence*$\{{x}_{n}\}$*converges to**x**if and only if*${\parallel {x}_{n}-x\parallel}_{C}\to 0$*as*$n\to \mathrm{\infty}$, - (ii)
*the sequence*$\{{x}_{n}\}$*is Cauchy if and only if*${\parallel {x}_{n}-{x}_{m}\parallel}_{C}\to 0$*as*$n,m\to \mathrm{\infty}$, - (iii)
*the sequence*$\{{x}_{n}\}$*converges to**x**and the sequence*$\{{y}_{n}\}$*converges to**y*,*then*${\parallel {x}_{n}-{y}_{n}\parallel}_{C}\to {\parallel x-y\parallel}_{C}$.

*Proof* See [2] Lemmas 1, 4 and 5. □

**Definition 4** (see [5])

*C*be a closed and convex subset of a cone Banach space with the norm ${\parallel \cdot \parallel}_{C}$ and $T:C\to C$ be a mapping. Consider the condition

then *T* is called nonexpansive if it satisfies the condition (2).

## 2 Main result

From now on, $X=(X,{\parallel \cdot \parallel}_{C})$ will be a cone Banach space, *P* will be a normal cone with a normal constant *K* and *T*, a self-mapping operator defined on a subset *C* of *X*. Let ${\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}$ be an increasing, positive and self-mapping operator defined on *E*, where *E* is a Banach algebras. In this paper, we give a generalization of Theorem 2.4 in [5] for ${\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}$ operator.

**Definition 5** Let *E* be Banach algebra and $(E,{\parallel \cdot \parallel}_{C})$ be a Banach space. ${\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}:E\to E$ is an increasing and positive mapping, *i.e.*, ${\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(x)={\parallel x\parallel}^{p-2}x$, where $\frac{1}{p}+\frac{1}{q}=1$.

If $E=\mathbb{R}$, then ${\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}:\mathbb{R}\to \mathbb{R}$ is a *p*-Laplacian operator, *i.e.*, ${\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(x)={|x|}^{p-2}x$ for some $p>1$.

- (1)
if $x\le y$, then ${\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(x)\le {\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(y)$ for all $x,y\in E$,

- (2)
${\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}$ is a continuous bijection and its inverse mapping is also continuous,

- (3)
${\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(xy)={\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(x){\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(y)$ for all $x,y\in E$,

- (4)
${\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(x+y)\le {\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(x)+{\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}(y)$ for all $x,y\in E$.

**Theorem 6**

*Let*

*C*

*be a closed and convex subset of a cone Banach space*

*X*

*with the norm*${\parallel \cdot \parallel}_{C}$.

*Let*

*E*

*be a Banach algebra and*${\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}:E\to E$

*and*$T:C\to C$

*be mappings and*

*T*

*satisfy the following condition*:

*for all* $x,y\in C$, *where* ${2}^{p-1}\le k<{4}^{p-1}$ *in* *E*. *Then* *T* *has at least one fixed point*.

*Proof*Let ${x}_{0}\in C$ be arbitrary. Define a sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ in the following way:

Since ${2}^{p-1}\le k<{4}^{p-1}$, $\{{x}_{n}\}$ is a Cauchy sequence in *C*. Because *C* is a closed and convex subset of a cone Banach space, thus $\{{x}_{n}\}$ sequence converges to some $z\in C$. That is, ${x}_{n}\to z$, $z\in C$.

as $n\to \mathrm{\infty}$, then $d(z,T{x}_{n})\le 0$. Thus $T{x}_{n}\to z$.

when $n\to \mathrm{\infty}$, $d(z,Tz)=0$. Then $Tz=z$. □

**Theorem 7**

*Let*

*C*

*be a closed and convex subset of a cone Banach space*

*X*

*with the norm*${\parallel \cdot \parallel}_{C}$.

*Let*

*E*

*be a Banach algebra*, ${\mathrm{\Phi}}_{p}:E\to E$

*and*$T:C\to C$

*be mappings*.

*If there exist*

*a*,

*b*,

*c*,

*r*

*in*

*E*

*and*

*T*

*satisfies the following conditions*:

*for all* $x,y\in C$, *where* $0\le {\mathrm{\Phi}}_{q}(r)<{\mathrm{\Phi}}_{q}(a)+2({\mathrm{\Phi}}_{q}(b)+{\mathrm{\Phi}}_{q}(c))$, *then* *T* *has at least one fixed point*.

*Proof*Construct a sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ as in the proof of Theorem 6. Then

Thus $\{{x}_{n}\}$ is a Cauchy sequence in *C* and thus it converges to some $z\in C$. As in the proof of Theorem 6, we can show $Tz=z$. □
