Altman’s contractors and fixed points of multivalued mappings

K. Balakrishna Reddy and P. V. Subrahmanyam

Vol. 99 (1982), No. 1, 127–136

Let Pi : D X1 ××Xn CL(Y i) be multivalued mappings where Xi, Y i are Banach spaces and CL(Y i) is the set of all nonempty closed subsets of Y i, i = 1,,n. We prove a theorem ensuring that 𝜃i Pi(x1,,xn) for some (x1,,xn) D and deduce the fixed point theorems for multivalued mappings proved earlier by Czerwik, Nadler and Reich as corollaries. Besides, generalizations for multivalued mappings of the existence theorems proved by Altman using his theory of contractors are also obtained.
