Some new common fixed point theorems for Geraghty contraction type maps in partial metric spaces

Document Type: Original Article



In this paper, we prove some new common fixed point theorems for Geraghtys type contraction mappings on partial metric spaces. Theorems presented are
generalizations of fixed point theorems of Altun et al. [Generalized Geraghty type mappings on partial metric spaces and fixed point results, Arab. J. Math. 2, (2013), no. 3, 247-253]. We also give some examples to illustrate the usability of the obtained results
