Fixed Point Theorem for Cyclic (μ, ψ, φ)-Weakly Contractions via a New Function

Open access


In this paper, we introduce a generalization of cyclic (μ, ψ, φ)-weakly contraction via a new function and derive the existence of fixed point for such mappings in the setup of complete metric spaces. Our results extend and improve some fixed point theorems in the literature.
