Revisiting Ciric type nonunique fixed point theorems via interpolation




abstract metric space, non-unique xed point, self-mappings


In this paper, we aim to revisit some non-unique fixed point theorems that were initiated by Ćirić, first.
We consider also some natural consequences of the obtained results. In addition, we provide a simple example to illustrate the validity of the main result.
