Coupled fixed point theorems in partially ordered cone metric space. (English) Zbl 1289.54122
One of the main results of the paper is the following. Let $$(X,\sqsubseteq,d)$$ be a complete ordered cone metric space in the sense of L.-G. Huang and X. Zhang [Math. Anal. Appl. 332, No. 2, 1468–1476 (2007; Zbl 1118.54022)] and let $$F:X\times X\to X$$ be a continuous mapping. Suppose that: (a) $$F$$ has the mixed monotone property, i.e., $$F(x_1,y_1)\sqsubseteq F(x_2,y_2)$$ whenever $$x_1\sqsubseteq x_2$$ and $$y_2\sqsubseteq y_1$$; (b) there exist $$\alpha,\beta,\gamma\geq0$$ with $$2\alpha+3\beta+3\gamma<2$$ such that $$d(F(x,y),F(u,v))\leq\frac\alpha2(d(x,u)+d(y,v)) +\frac\beta2(d(x,F(x,y))+d(u,F(u,v))+d(y,v))+\frac\gamma2(d(x,F(u,v))+d(u,F(x,y))+d(y,v))$$ for all $$u\sqsubseteq x$$, $$y\sqsubseteq v$$; (c) there exist $$x_0,y_0\in X$$ such that $$x_0\sqsubseteq F(x_0,y_0)$$ and $$F(y_0,x_0)\sqsubseteq y_0$$. The authors prove that under these assumptions, $$F$$ has a coupled fixed point. Also, a result for a class of quasicontractions is proved. No example is given.
