Abstract

The concept of partial metric p on a nonempty set X was introduced by Matthews. One of the most interesting properties of a partial metric is that p(x, x) may not be zero for x e X. Also, each partial metric p on a nonempty set X generates a T0 topology on X. By omitting the small self-distance axiom of partial metric, Heckmann defined the weak partial metric space. In the present paper, we give some fixed point results on weak partial metric spaces.
