## 1 Introduction

One of the interesting metric fixed point results was given by Samet *et al.* [1] by introducing the notions of *α*-admissible and *α*-*ψ*-contractive type mappings. They reported results via these new notions, and they extended and unified most of the related existing metric fixed point results in the literature. In particular, the authors [2] showed that fixed point results via cyclic contractions are consequences of their related results. Naturally, many authors have started to investigate the existence and uniqueness of a fixed point theorem via admissible mappings and variations of the concept of *α*-*ψ*-contractive type mappings, for reference see [1–19]. The notion of cyclic contraction was introduced by Kirk *et al.* [20]. The main advantage of the cyclic contraction is that the given mapping does not need to be continuous. It has been appreciated by several authors; see *e.g.* [21–26] and related references therein.

In this paper, we shall consider the characterization of the notions of *α*-*ψ*-contractive and *α*-admissible mappings in the context uniform spaces. Further, we shall prove some fixed point theorems by using these concepts. We shall also use *α*-admissible pairs to investigate the existence and uniqueness of a common fixed point in the setting of uniform spaces. We shall also establish some examples to illustrate the main results.

*X*be a nonempty set. A nonempty family,

*ϑ*, of subsets of $X\times X$ is called a uniform structure of

*X*it satisfies the following properties:

- (i)
if

*G*is in*ϑ*, then*G*contains the diagonal $\{(x,x)|x\in X\}$; - (ii)
if

*G*is in*ϑ*and*H*is a subset of $X\times X$ which contains*G*, then*H*is in*ϑ*; - (iii)
if

*G*and*H*are in*ϑ*, then $G\cap H$ is in*ϑ*; - (iv)
if

*G*is in*ϑ*, then there exists*H*in*ϑ*, such that, whenever $(x,y)$ and $(y,z)$ are in*H*, then $(x,z)$ is in*G*; - (v)
if

*G*is in*ϑ*, then $\{(y,x)|(x,y)\in G\}$ is also in*ϑ*.

The pair $(X,\vartheta )$ is called a uniform space and the element of *ϑ* is called entourage or neighborhood or surrounding. The pair $(X,\vartheta )$ is called a quasiuniform space (see *e.g.* [27, 28]) if property (v) is omitted.

*X*. For $V,W\in X\times X$, we shall use the following setting in the sequel:

For a subset $V\in \vartheta $, a pair of points *x* and *y* are said to be *V*-close if $(x,y)\in V$ and $(y,x)\in V$. Moreover, a sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ in *X* is called a Cauchy sequence for *ϑ*, if, for any $V\in \vartheta $, there exists $N\ge 1$ such that ${x}_{n}$ and ${x}_{m}$ are *V*-close for $n,m\ge N$. For $(X,\vartheta )$, there is a unique topology $\tau (\vartheta )$ on *X* generated by $V(x)=\{y\in X|(x,y)\in V\}$ where $V\in \vartheta $.

A sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ in *X* is convergent to *x* for *ϑ*, denoted by ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}{x}_{n}=x$, if, for any $V\in \vartheta $, there exists ${n}_{0}\in \mathbb{N}$ such that ${x}_{n}\in V(x)$ for every $n\ge {n}_{0}$. A uniform space $(X,\vartheta )$ is called Hausdorff if the intersection of all the $V\in \vartheta $ is equal to Δ of *X*, that is, if $(x,y)\in V$ for all $V\in \vartheta $ implies $x=y$. If $V={V}^{-1}$ then we shall say that a subset $V\in \vartheta $ is symmetrical. Throughout the paper, we shall assume that each $V\in \vartheta $ is symmetrical. For more details, see *e.g.* [27, 29–32].

Now, we shall recall the notions of *A*-distance and *E*-distance.

Let $(X,\vartheta )$ be a uniform space. A function $p:X\times X\to [0,\mathrm{\infty})$ is said to be an *A*-distance if, for any $V\in \vartheta $, there exists $\delta >0$ such that if $p(z,x)\le \delta $ and $p(z,y)\le \delta $ for some $z\in X$, then $(x,y)\in V$.

*E*-distance if

- (i)
*p*is an*A*-distance, - (ii)
$p(x,y)\le p(x,z)+p(z,y)$, $\mathrm{\forall}x,y,z\in X$.

Let $(X,\vartheta )$ be a uniform space and let *d* be a metric on *X*. It is evident that $(X,{\vartheta}_{d})$ is a uniform space where ${\vartheta}_{d}$ is a set of all subsets of $X\times X$ containing a ‘band’ ${U}_{\u03f5}=\{(x,y)\in {X}^{2}|d(x,y)<\u03f5\}$ for some $\u03f5>0$. Moreover, if $\vartheta \subseteq {\vartheta}_{d}$, then *d* is an *E*-distance on $(X,\vartheta )$.

*Let*$(X,\vartheta )$

*be a Hausdorff uniform space and*

*p*

*be an*

*A*-

*distance on X*.

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

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

*be sequences in*

*X*

*and*$\{{\alpha}_{n}\}$, $\{{\beta}_{n}\}$

*be sequences in*$[0,\mathrm{\infty})$

*converging to*0.

*Then*,

*for*$x,y,z\in X$,

*the following results hold*:

- (a)
*If*$p({x}_{n},y)\le {\alpha}_{n}$*and*$p({x}_{n},z)\le {\beta}_{n}$*for all*$n\in \mathbb{N}$,*then*$y=z$.*In particular*,*if*$p(x,y)=0$*and*$p(x,z)=0$,*then*$y=z$. - (b)
*If*$p({x}_{n},{y}_{n})\le {\alpha}_{n}$*and*$p({x}_{n},z)\le {\beta}_{n}$*for all*$n\in \mathbb{N}$,*then*$\{{y}_{n}\}$*converges to**z*. - (c)
*If*$p({x}_{n},{x}_{m})\le {\alpha}_{n}$*for all*$n,m\in \mathbb{N}$*with*$m>n$,*then*$\{{x}_{n}\}$*is a Cauchy sequence in*$(X,\vartheta )$.

Let *p* be an *A*-distance. A sequence in a uniform space $(X,\vartheta )$ with an *A*-distance is said to be a *p*-Cauchy if, for every $\u03f5>0$, there exists ${n}_{0}\in \mathbb{N}$ such that $p({x}_{n},{x}_{m})<\u03f5$ for all $n,m\ge {n}_{0}$.

*p*be an

*A*-distance on

*X*.

- (i)
*X*is*S*-complete if, for every*p*-Cauchy sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$, there exists*x*in*X*with ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p({x}_{n},x)=0$. - (ii)
*X*is*p*-Cauchy complete if, for every*p*-Cauchy sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$, there exists*x*in*X*with ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}{x}_{n}=x$ with respect to $\tau (\vartheta )$. - (iii)
$T:X\to X$ is

*p*-continuous if ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p({x}_{n},x)=0$ implies ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p(T({x}_{n}),T(x))=0$.

**Remark 1.6** Let $(X,\vartheta )$ be a Hausdorff uniform space which is *S*-complete. If a sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ be a *p*-Cauchy sequence, then we have ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p({x}_{n},x)=0$. Regarding Lemma 1.4(b), we derive ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}{x}_{n}=x$ with respect to the topology $\tau (\vartheta )$, and hence *S*-completeness implies *p*-Cauchy completeness.

**Definition 1.7** [20]

*X*be a nonempty set,

*m*a positive integer and $T:X\to X$ a mapping. $X={\bigcup}_{i=1}^{m}{A}_{i}$ is said to be a cyclic representation of

*X*with respect to

*T*if

- (i)
${A}_{i}$, $i=1,2,\dots ,m$ are nonempty sets;

- (ii)
$T({A}_{1})\subset {A}_{2},\dots ,T({A}_{m-1})\subset {A}_{m},T({A}_{m})\subset {A}_{1}$.

## 2 Main results

Let Ψ be the family of functions $\psi :[0,\mathrm{\infty})\to [0,\mathrm{\infty})$ satisfying the following conditions:

(${\mathrm{\Psi}}_{1}$) *ψ* is nondecreasing;

(${\mathrm{\Psi}}_{2}$) ${\sum}_{n=1}^{+\mathrm{\infty}}{\psi}^{n}(t)<\mathrm{\infty}$ for all $t>0$, where ${\psi}^{n}$ is the *n* th iterate of *ψ*.

These functions are known in the literature as (c)-comparison functions. It is easily proved that if *ψ* is a (c)-comparison function, then $\psi (t)<t$ for any $t>0$.

**Definition 2.1** [1]

*T*is

*α*-admissible if, for all $x,y\in X$, we have

We shall characterize the notion of *α*-*ψ*-contractive mapping, introduced by Samet *et al.* [1], in the context of uniform space as follows.

**Definition 2.2**Let $(X,\vartheta )$ be a uniform space such that

*p*is an

*E*-distance on

*X*and $T:X\to X$ be a given mapping. We shall say that

*T*is an

*α*-

*ψ*-contractive mapping if there exist two functions $\alpha :X\times X\to [0,\mathrm{\infty})$ and $\psi \in \mathrm{\Psi}$ such that

**Theorem 2.3**

*Let*$(X,\vartheta )$

*be a*

*S*-

*complete Hausdorff uniform space such that*

*p*

*be an*

*E*-

*distance on*

*X*.

*Let*$T:X\to X$

*be an*

*α*-

*ψ*-

*contractive mapping satisfying the following conditions*:

- (i)
*T**is**α*-*admissible*; - (ii)
*there exists*${x}_{0}\in X$*such that*$\alpha ({x}_{0},T{x}_{0})\ge 1$*and*$\alpha (T{x}_{0},{x}_{0})\ge 1$; - (iii)
*T**is**p*-*continuous*.

*Then* *T* *has a fixed point* $u\in X$.

*Proof*By hypothesis (ii) of the theorem we have ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},T{x}_{0})\ge 1$. Define the sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ in

*X*by ${x}_{n+1}=T{x}_{n}$ for all $n\in \mathbb{N}\cup \{0\}$. If ${x}_{{n}_{0}}={x}_{{n}_{0}+1}$ for some ${n}_{0}$, then $u={x}_{{n}_{0}}$ is a fixed point of

*T*. So, we can assume that ${x}_{n}\ne {x}_{n+1}$ for all

*n*. Since

*T*is

*α*-admissible, we have

*p*is an

*E*-distance, for $m>n$, we have

*p*-Cauchy sequence, consider

*p*is not symmetrical, by repeating the same argument we have

Hence the sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ is a *p*-Cauchy in the *S*-complete space *X*. Thus, there exists $u\in X$ such that ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p({x}_{n},u)=0$, which implies ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}{x}_{n}=u$. Since *T* is *p*-continuous, we have ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p(T{x}_{n},Tu)=0$, which implies that ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}({x}_{n+1},Tu)=0$. Hence we have ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p({x}_{n},u)=0$ and ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}({x}_{n},Tu)=0$. Thus by Lemma 1.4(a) we have $u=Tu$. □

In the following theorem, we omit the *p*-continuity by replacing a suitable condition on the obtained iterative sequence.

**Theorem 2.4**

*Let*$(X,\vartheta )$

*be a*

*S*-

*complete Hausdorff uniform space such that*

*p*

*is an*

*E*-

*distance on*

*X*.

*Let*$T:X\to X$

*be an*

*α*-

*ψ*-

*contractive mapping satisfying the following conditions*:

- (i)
*T**is**α*-*admissible*; - (ii)
*there exists*${x}_{0}\in X$*such that*$\alpha ({x}_{0},T{x}_{0})\ge 1$*and*$\alpha (T{x}_{0},{x}_{0})\ge 1$; - (iii)
*for any sequence*$\{{x}_{n}\}$*in**X**with*${x}_{n}\to x$*as*$n\to \mathrm{\infty}$*and*$\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$*for each*$n\in \mathbb{N}\cup \{0\}$,*then*$\alpha ({x}_{n},x)\ge 1$*for each*$n\in \mathbb{N}\cup \{0\}$.

*Then* *T* *has a fixed point* $u\in X$.

*Proof*By following the proof of Theorem 2.3, we know that $\{{x}_{n}\}$ is a

*p*-Cauchy in the

*S*-complete space

*X*. Thus, there exists $u\in X$ such that ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p({x}_{n},u)=0$, which implies ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}{x}_{n}=u$. By using (2.1) and assumption (iii), we get

Letting $n\to \mathrm{\infty}$ in above inequality, we shall have ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p({x}_{n},Tu)=0$. Hence we have ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p({x}_{n},u)=0$ and ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p({x}_{n},Tu)=0$. Thus by Lemma 1.4(a) we have $u=Tu$. □

**Example 2.5**Let $X=\{\frac{1}{n}:n\in \mathbb{N}\}\cup \{0\}$ be endowed with the usual metric

*d*. Define $\vartheta =\{{U}_{\u03f5}|\u03f5>0\}$. It is easy to see that $(X,\vartheta )$ is a uniform space. Define $T:X\to X$ by

and $\psi (t)=\frac{t}{3}$ for all $t\ge 0$. One can easily see that *T* is *α*-*ψ*-contractive and *α*-admissible mapping. Also for ${x}_{0}=\frac{1}{2}$ we have $\alpha ({x}_{0},T{x}_{0})=\alpha (T{x}_{0},{x}_{0})=1$. Moreover, for any sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ in *X* with ${x}_{n}\to x$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty}$ and $\alpha ({x}_{n-1},{x}_{n})=1$ for each $n\in \mathbb{N}$ we have $\alpha ({x}_{n},x)=1$ for each $n\in \mathbb{N}$. Therefore by Theorem 2.4, *T* has a fixed point.

- (H)
For all $x,y\in Fix(T)$, there exists $z\in X$ such that $\alpha (z,x)\ge 1$ and $\alpha (z,y)\ge 1$.

Here, $Fix(T)$ denotes the set of fixed points of *T*.

The following theorem guarantees the uniqueness of a fixed point.

**Theorem 2.6** *Adding the condition* (H) *to the hypothesis of Theorem * 2.3 (*respectively*, *Theorem * 2.4), *we obtain the uniqueness of fixed point of* *T*.

*Proof*Suppose, on the contrary, that $v\in X$ is another fixed point of

*T*. From (H), there exists $z\in X$ such that

*T*is

*α*-admissible, from (2.10), we have

*X*by ${z}_{n+1}=T{z}_{n}={T}^{n}{z}_{0}$ for all $n\in \mathbb{N}\cup \{0\}$ and ${z}_{0}=z$. From (2.11) and (2.1), we have

From (2.13) and (2.14) together with Lemma 1.4(a), it follows that $u=v$. Thus we have proved that *u* is the unique fixed point of *T*. □

**Definition 2.7** [9]

A pair of two self-mappings $T,S:X\to X$ is said to be *α*-admissible, if, for any $x,y\in X$ with $\alpha (x,y)\ge 1$, we have $\alpha (Tx,Sy)\ge 1$ and $\alpha (Sx,Ty)\ge 1$.

**Definition 2.8**Let $(X,\vartheta )$ be a uniform space. A pair of two self-mappings $T,S:X\to X$ is said to be an

*α*-

*ψ*-contractive pair if

for any $x,y\in X$, where $\psi \in \mathrm{\Psi}$.

**Theorem 2.9**

*Let*$(X,\vartheta )$

*be a*

*S*-

*complete Hausdorff uniform space such that*

*p*

*is an*

*E*-

*distance on*

*X*.

*Suppose that the pair of*$T,S:X\to X$

*is an*

*α*-

*ψ*-

*contractive pair satisfying the following conditions*:

- (i)
$(T,S)$

*is**α*-*admissible*; - (ii)
*there exists*${x}_{0}\in X$*such that*$\alpha ({x}_{0},T{x}_{0})\ge 1$*and*$\alpha (T{x}_{0},{x}_{0})\ge 1$; - (iii)
*for any sequence*$\{{x}_{n}\}$*in**X**with*${x}_{n}\to x$*as*$n\to \mathrm{\infty}$*and*$\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$*for each*$n\in \mathbb{N}\cup \{0\}$,*then*$\alpha ({x}_{n},x)\ge 1$*for each*$n\in \mathbb{N}\cup \{0\}$.

*Then* *T* *and* *S* *have a common fixed point*.

*Proof*By hypothesis (ii) of the theorem, we have ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},T{x}_{0})\ge 1$ and $\alpha (T{x}_{0},{x}_{0})\ge 1$. Since $(T,S)$ is an

*α*-admissible pair, we can construct a sequence such that

*p*-Cauchy sequence, Since

*p*is an

*E*-distance, for $m>n$, we have

*p*is not symmetrical, by repeating the same argument we have

*p*-Cauchy in the

*S*-complete space

*X*. Thus, there exists $u\in X$ such that ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p({x}_{n},u)=0$, which implies ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}T{x}_{2n}={lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}S{x}_{2n+1}=u$. By using (2.15) and assumption (iii), we get

Letting $n\to \mathrm{\infty}$ in (2.23), we have $p({x}_{n},Tu)=0$. Hence we have ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p({x}_{n},u)=0$ and ${lim}_{n\to \mathrm{\infty}}p({x}_{n},Tu)=0$. Thus by Lemma 1.4(a) we have $u=Tu$. Analogously, one can derive $u=Su$. Therefore $u=Tu=Su$. □

**Remark 2.10** Note that Theorem 2.9 is valid if one replaces condition (ii) with

(ii)′ there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},S{x}_{0})\ge 1$ and $\alpha (S{x}_{0},{x}_{0})\ge 1$.

We shall get the following result by letting $S=T$ in Theorem 2.9.

**Corollary 2.11**

*Let*$(X,\vartheta )$

*be a*

*S*-

*complete Hausdorff uniform space such that*

*p*

*is an*

*E*-

*distance on*

*X*.

*Suppose that a mapping*$T:X\to X$

*is satisfying the condition*

*for any*$x,y\in X$,

*where*$\psi \in \mathrm{\Psi}$.

*Also suppose that the following conditions are satisfied*:

- (i)
*T**is**α*-*admissible*; - (ii)
*there exists*${x}_{0}\in X$*such that*$\alpha ({x}_{0},T{x}_{0})\ge 1$*and*$\alpha (T{x}_{0},{x}_{0})\ge 1$; - (iii)
*for any sequence*$\{{x}_{n}\}$*in**X**with*${x}_{n}\to x$*as*$n\to \mathrm{\infty}$*and*$\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$*for each*$n\in \mathbb{N}\cup \{0\}$,*then*$\alpha ({x}_{n},x)\ge 1$*for each*$n\in \mathbb{N}\cup \{0\}$.

*Then* *T* *has a fixed point*.

**Example 2.12**Let $(X,d)$ is a dislocated metric space where $X=\{\frac{1}{n}:n\in \mathbb{N}\}\cup \{0\}$ and $d(x,y)=max\{x,y\}$. Define $\vartheta =\{{U}_{\u03f5}|\u03f5>0\}$, where ${U}_{\u03f5}=\{(x,y)\in {X}^{2}:d(x,y)<d(x,x)+\u03f5\}$. It is easy to see that $(X,\vartheta )$ is a uniform space. Define $T:X\to X$ by

and $\psi (t)=\frac{t}{2}$ for all $t\ge 0$. One can easily see that $(T,S)$ is an *α*-*ψ*-contractive and *α*-admissible pair. Also for ${x}_{0}=\frac{1}{2}$ we have $\alpha ({x}_{0},T{x}_{0})=\alpha (T{x}_{0},{x}_{0})=1$. Moreover, for any sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ in *X* with ${x}_{n}\to x$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty}$ and $\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$ for each $n\in \mathbb{N}\cup \{0\}$, we have $\alpha ({x}_{n},x)\ge 1$ for each $n\in \mathbb{N}$. Therefore by Theorem 2.9, *T* and *S* have a common fixed point.

- (I)
For each $x,y\in CFix(T,S)$, we have $\alpha (x,y)\ge 1$, where $CFix(T,S)$ is the set of all common fixed points of

*T*and*S*.

**Theorem 2.13** *Adding the condition* (I) *to the hypothesis of Theorem * 2.9, *we obtain the uniqueness of the common fixed point of* *T* *and* *S*.

*Proof*On the contrary suppose that $u,v\in X$ are two distinct common fixed points of

*T*and

*S*. From (I) and (2.15) we have

which is impossible for $p(u,v)>0$. Consequently, we have $p(u,v)=0$. Analogously, one can show that $p(u,u)=0$. Thus we have $u=v$, which is a contradiction to our assumption. Hence *T* and *S* have a unique common fixed point. □

## 3 Consequences

*Suppose that there exists a function*$\psi \in \mathrm{\Psi}$

*such that*

*for all* $x,y\in X$. *Then* *T* *has a unique fixed point*.

By substituting $\psi (t)=kt$, where $k\in [0,1)$, in Corollary 3.1, we shall get the following.

Taking in Theorem 2.13 $\alpha (x,y)=1$ for all $x,y\in X$, we shall obtain immediately the following common fixed point theorem.

### 3.2 Cyclic contraction on uniform space

**Corollary 3.5**

*Let*$(X,\vartheta )$

*be a*

*S*-

*complete Hausdorff uniform space such that*

*p*

*is an*

*E*-

*distance on*

*X*

*and*${A}_{1}$, ${A}_{2}$

*are nonempty closed subsets of*

*X*

*with respect to the topological space*$(X,\tau (\vartheta ))$.

*Let*$T:Y\to Y$

*be a mapping*,

*where*$Y={\bigcup}_{i=1}^{2}{A}_{i}$.

*Suppose that the following conditions hold*:

- (i)
$T({A}_{1})\subseteq {A}_{2}$

*and*$T({A}_{2})\subseteq {A}_{1}$; - (ii)
*there exists a function*$\psi \in \mathrm{\Psi}$*such that*$p(Tx,Ty)\le \psi (p(x,y)),\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\mathit{\text{for all}}(x,y)\in {A}_{1}\times {A}_{2}.$

*Then* *T* *has a unique fixed point that belongs to* ${A}_{1}\cap {A}_{2}$.

*Proof*Since ${A}_{1}$ and ${A}_{2}$ are closed subsets of

*X*, $(Y,d)$ is an

*S*-complete Hausdorff uniform space. Define the mapping $\alpha :Y\times Y\to [0,\mathrm{\infty})$ by

*α*, we can write

for all $x,y\in Y$. Thus *T* is an *α*-*ψ*-contractive mapping.

Let $(x,y)\in Y\times Y$ such that $\alpha (x,y)\ge 1$. If $(x,y)\in {A}_{1}\times {A}_{2}$, from (i), $(Tx,Ty)\in {A}_{2}\times {A}_{1}$, which implies that $\alpha (Tx,Ty)\ge 1$. If $(x,y)\in {A}_{2}\times {A}_{1}$, from (i), $(Tx,Ty)\in {A}_{1}\times {A}_{2}$, which implies that $\alpha (Tx,Ty)\ge 1$. Thus in all cases, we have $\alpha (Tx,Ty)\ge 1$. This implies that *T* is *α*-admissible.

Also, from (i), for any $a\in {A}_{1}$, we have $(a,Ta)\in {A}_{1}\times {A}_{2}$, which implies that $\alpha (a,Ta)\ge 1$.

*X*such that $\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$ for all

*n*and ${x}_{n}\to x\in X$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty}$. This implies from the definition of

*α*that

*X*with respect to the topological space $(X,\tau (\vartheta ))$, we get

which implies that $x\in {A}_{1}\cap {A}_{2}$. Thus we can easily get from the definition of *α* that $\alpha ({x}_{n},x)\ge 1$ for all *n*.

Finally, let $x,y\in Fix(T)$. From (i), this implies that $x,y\in {A}_{1}\cap {A}_{2}$. So, for any $z\in Y$, we have $\alpha (z,x)\ge 1$ and $\alpha (z,y)\ge 1$. Thus condition (H) is satisfied.

Now, all the hypotheses of Theorem 2.6 are satisfied, and we deduce that *T* has a unique fixed point that belongs to ${A}_{1}\cap {A}_{2}$ (from (i)). □
