Fixed point theory for contractive mappings satisfying \(\Phi \)-maps in G-metric spaces. (English) Zbl 1204.54039
The \(\varphi\)-contraction principle in a complete metric space is well known (see [J. Matkowski, ”Integrable Solutions of Functional Equations,” Dissertationes Math., Warszawa 127, 63 p. (1975; Zbl 0318.39005)]; I. A. Rus, [Math., Rev. Anal. Numér. Théor. Approximation, Math. 24(47), 175–178 (1982; Zbl 0525.54029) and Generalized Contractions and Applications.

In this paper a fixed point principle for \(\varphi\)-contractions in a complete G-metric space (see Z. Mustafa and B. Sims, [J. Nonlinear Convex Anal. 7, No. 2, 286–297 (2006; Zbl 1111.54025)]) is presented. Then a theory [I. A. Rus, Fixed Point Theory 9, No. 2, 541–559 (2008; Zbl 1172.54030)] of this metrical fixed point theorem is discussed.
