Fixed point theorems for generalized contraction mappings on b-rectangular metric spaces

Cristian Daniel Alecsa


In the present article, we study some fixed point theorems for a hybrid class of generalized contractive operators in the context of b-rectangular metric spaces. An open problem regarding to further generalizations for this type of operators is also given.
