Fixed point theorems for simulation functions in $\mbox{b}$-metric spaces via the $wt$-distance

Chirasak Mongkolkeha, Yeol Je Cho, Poom Kumam


The purpose of this article is to prove some fixed point theorems for simulation functions  in complete b-metric   spaces with partially ordered  by using wt-distance which introduced by   Hussain et al.  Also, we give some  examples to illustrate  our  main results.
