Fixed points of α-Θ-Geraghty type and Θ-Geraghty graphic type contractions

Wudthichai Onsod, Poom Kumam, Yoel Je Cho


In this paper, by using the concept of the α-Garaghty contraction, we introduce the new notion of the α-Θ-Garaghty type contraction and prove some fixed point results for this contraction in partial metric spaces. Also, we give some examples and applications to illustrate the main results.
