Best Proximity Points for Cyclical Contractive Mappings

J. Maria Felicit, A. Anthony Eldred


We consider p-cyclic mappings and prove an analogous result to Edelstien contractive theorem for best proximity points. Also we give similar results satisfying Boyd-Wong and Geraghty contractive conditions.
