Common Fixed Point Results for Generalized (φ; ϕ ; L)f; g- Weak Contraction Maps and their Applications to Best Approximation

Received Date:04 October 2023, Accepted Date:23 October 2023, Published Date:28 November 2023


Objective/Aim: To find the fixed point theorems and best approximation results for the pair of self maps in the setting of metric and normed spaces. Methods: We used the notion of generalized -weak contraction for pair of maps in metric spaces and property (N) in Normed spaces. Findings: Unique common fixed points for four maps satisfying generalized -weak contraction condition and some best approximation results have been established. Novelty/Improvements: Our results extend and improve the existing results of Dahiya et al., Arya et al., He and Zhao etc. Examples have also been added in support of our results.
