Journal of Inequalities and Applications volume 2014, Article number: 22 (2014)
Abstract
In this paper, we introduce a new class of expansive mappings called generalized $(\xi ,\alpha )$expansive mappings and investigate the existence of a fixed point for the mappings in this class. We conclude that several fixedpoint theorems can be considered as a consequence of main results. Moreover, some examples are given to illustrate the usability of the obtained results.

1 Introduction
Fixedpoint theory has attracted many mathematicians since it provides a simple proof for the existence and uniqueness of the solutions to various mathematical models (integral and partial differential equations, variational inequalities etc.). After the celebrated results of Banach [1], fixedpoint theory became one of the most interesting topics in nonlinear analysis. Consequently, a number of the papers have appeared since then; see e.g. [2–10] and references therein. Among them, we mention the αψcontractive mapping, which was introduced by Samet et al. [9] via αadmissible mappings. In this paper, the authors established various fixedpoint theorems for such mappings in complete metric spaces. Furthermore, Samet et al. [9] stated that several existing results can be concluded from their main results. For the sake of completeness, we recall some basic definitions and fundamental results.
Definition 1.1 [9]
Let φ denote the family of all functions $\psi :[0,+\mathrm{\infty})\to [0,+\mathrm{\infty})$ which satisfy:

(i)
${\sum}_{n=1}^{+\mathrm{\infty}}{\psi}^{n}(t)<+\mathrm{\infty}$ for each $t>0$, where ${\psi}^{n}$ is the n th iterate of ψ.

(ii)
ψ is nondecreasing.
Definition 1.2 [9]
Let $(X,d)$ be a metric space and $T:X\to X$ be a given self mapping. T is said to be an αψcontractive mapping if there exist two functions $\alpha :X\times X\to [0,+\mathrm{\infty})$ and $\psi \in \phi $ such that
for all $x,y\in X$.
Definition 1.3 [9]
Let $T:X\to X$ and $\alpha :X\times X\to [0,+\mathrm{\infty})$. T is said to be αadmissible if
Now, we give some examples of αadmissible mappings.
Example 1.4 Let X be the set of all nonnegative real numbers. Let us define the mapping $\alpha :X\times X\to [0,+\mathrm{\infty})$ by
and define the mapping $T:X\to X$ by $Tx={x}^{2}$ for all $x\in X$. Then T is αadmissible.
In what follows, we present the main results of Samet et al. [9].
Theorem 1.1 [9]
Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space and $T:X\to X$ be an αψcontractive mapping satisfying the following conditions:

(i)
T is αadmissible;

(ii)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},T{x}_{0})\ge 1$;

(iii)
T is continuous.
Then T has a fixed point, that is, there exists ${x}^{\ast}\in X$ such that $T{x}^{\ast}={x}^{\ast}$.
Theorem 1.2 [9]
Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space and $T:X\to X$ be an αψcontractive mapping satisfying the following conditions:

(i)
T is αadmissible;

(ii)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},T{x}_{0})\ge 1$;

(iii)
if $\{{x}_{n}\}$ is a sequence in X such that $\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$ for all n and ${x}_{n}\to x\in X$ as $n\to +\mathrm{\infty}$, then $\alpha ({x}_{n},x)\ge 1$ for all n.
Then T has a fixed point.
Samet et al. [9] added the following condition (H) to the hypotheses of Theorem 1.1 and Theorem 1.2 to assure the uniqueness of the fixed point:

(H)
For all $x,y\in X$, there exists $z\in X$ such that $\alpha (x,z)\ge 1$ and $\alpha (y,z)\ge 1$.
Afterwards, Karapınar and Samet [10] generalized these notions to obtain further fixedpoint results in the setting of complete metric space.
Definition 1.5 [10]
Let $(X,d)$ be a metric space and $T:X\to X$ be a given mapping. We say that T is a generalized αψcontractive mapping if there exist two functions $\alpha :X\times X\to [0,\mathrm{\infty})$ and $\psi \in \mathrm{\Psi}$ such that for all $x,y\in X$, we have
where $M(x,y)=max\{d(x,y),\frac{d(x,Tx)+d(y,Ty)}{2},\frac{d(x,Ty)+d(y,Tx)}{2}\}$.
Theorem 1.3 [10]
Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space. Suppose that $T:X\to X$ is a generalized αψcontractive mapping and satisfies the following conditions:

(i)
T is αadmissible;

(ii)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},T{x}_{0})\ge 1$;

(iii)
T is continuous.
Then there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Theorem 1.4 [10]
Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space. Suppose that $T:X\to X$ is a generalized αψcontractive mapping and the following conditions hold:

(i)
T is αadmissible;

(ii)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},T{x}_{0})\ge 1$;

(iii)
if $\{{x}_{n}\}$ is a sequence in X such that $\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$ for all n and ${x}_{n}\to x\in X$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty}$, then there exists a subsequence $\{{x}_{n(k)}\}$ of $\{{x}_{n}\}$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{n(k)},x)\ge 1$ for all k.
Then there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Theorem 1.5 [10]
Adding condition (H) to the hypotheses of Theorem 1.3 (resp. Theorem 1.4), we find that u is the unique fixed point of T.
On the other hand, Shahi et al. [11] introduced a new category of expansive mappings called $(\xi ,\alpha )$expansive mappings as a complement of the concept of αψcontractive type mappings. The authors in [11] also studied several fixedpoint theorems for these mappings in the context of complete metric spaces.
We recollect the notion of $(\xi ,\alpha )$expansive mappings as follows. Let χ denote all functions $\xi :[0,+\mathrm{\infty})\to [0,+\mathrm{\infty})$ which satisfy the following properties:
(${\xi}_{\mathrm{i}}$) ξ is nondecreasing,
(${\xi}_{\mathrm{ii}}$) ${\sum}_{n=1}^{+\mathrm{\infty}}{\xi}^{n}(t)<+\mathrm{\infty}$ for each $t>0$, where ${\xi}^{n}$ is the n th iterate of ξ,
(${\xi}_{\mathrm{iii}}$) $\xi (s+t)=\xi (s)+\xi (t)$, $\mathrm{\forall}s,t\in [0,+\mathrm{\infty})$.
Lemma 1.6 [9]
If $\xi :[0,+\mathrm{\infty})\to [0,+\mathrm{\infty})$ is a nondecreasing function, then for each $t>0$, ${lim}_{n\to +\mathrm{\infty}}{\xi}^{n}(t)=0$ implies $\xi (t)<t$.
Definition 1.6 [11]
Let $(X,d)$ be a metric space and $T:X\to X$ be a given mapping. We say that T is an $(\xi ,\alpha )$expansive mapping if there exist two functions $\xi \in \chi $ and $\alpha :X\times X\to [0,+\mathrm{\infty})$ such that
for all $x,y\in X$.
Remark 1.1 If $T:X\to X$ is an expansion mapping, then T is an $(\xi ,\alpha )$expansive mapping, where $\alpha (x,y)=1$ for all $x,y\in X$ and $\xi (a)=ka$ for all $a\ge 0$ and some $k\in [0,1)$.
The main result of Shahi et al. [11] is the following.
Theorem 1.7 [11]
Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space and $T:X\to X$ be a bijective, $(\xi ,\alpha )$expansive mapping satisfying the following conditions:

(i)
${T}^{1}$ is αadmissible;

(ii)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},{T}^{1}{x}_{0})\ge 1$;

(iii)
T is continuous.
Then T has a fixed point, that is, there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Motivated by the above ideas, we aim to give a new concept of generalized $(\xi ,\alpha )$expansive mappings. The results proved in this paper extend and generalize many existing results in the literature. We also illustrate some examples to support our statements.
2 Main results
We begin this section with the following definition.
Definition 2.1 Let $(X,d)$ be a metric space and $T:X\to X$ be a given mapping. We say that T is a generalized $(\xi ,\alpha )$expansive mapping if there exists two functions $\xi \in \chi $ and $\alpha :X\times X\to [0,+\mathrm{\infty})$ such that for all $x,y\in X$, we have
where $m(x,y)=min\{d(x,y),d(x,Tx),d(y,Ty)\}$.
Theorem 2.1 Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space and $T:X\to X$ be a bijective, generalized $(\xi ,\alpha )$expansive mapping satisfying the following conditions:

(i)
${T}^{1}$ is αadmissible;

(ii)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},{T}^{1}{x}_{0})\ge 1$;

(iii)
T is continuous.
Then T has a fixed point, that is, there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Proof Let ${x}_{0}\in X$ be such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},{T}^{1}{x}_{0})\ge 1$. Let us define the sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}$ in X by
Now, if ${x}_{n}={x}_{n+1}$ for any $n\in \mathbb{N}$, one sees that ${x}_{n}$ is a fixed point of T from the definition. Without loss of generality, we can suppose ${x}_{n}\ne {x}_{n+1}$ for each $n\in \mathbb{N}$. Since ${T}^{1}$ is an αadmissible mapping and $\alpha ({x}_{0},{T}^{1}{x}_{0})\ge 1$, we deduce that $\alpha ({T}^{1}{x}_{0},{T}^{1}{x}_{1})=\alpha ({x}_{1},{x}_{2})\ge 1$. Continuing this process, we get
for all $n\in \mathbb{N}\cup \{0\}$. Applying inequality (3) with $x={x}_{n}$, $y={x}_{n+1}$, we obtain
Owing to the fact that $\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$ for all n, we have
Now, if $min\{d({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1}),d({x}_{n1},{x}_{n})\}=d({x}_{n1},{x}_{n})$ for some $n\in \mathbb{N}$, then
which is a contradiction. Hence, for all $n\in \mathbb{N}$, we obtain
By induction, we have
For any $n>m\ge 0$, we infer that
From (${\xi}_{\mathrm{ii}}$), it follows that $\{{x}_{n}\}$ is a Cauchy sequence in the complete metric space $(X,d)$. So, there exists $u\in X$ such that ${x}_{n}\to u$ as $n\to +\mathrm{\infty}$. From the continuity of T, it follows that ${x}_{n}=T{x}_{n+1}\to Tu$ as $n\to +\mathrm{\infty}$. Owing to the uniqueness of the limit, we get $u=Tu$, that is, u is a fixed point of T. This completes the proof. □
In the sequel, we prove that Theorem 2.1 still holds for T not necessarily continuous, assuming the following condition:

(P)
If $\{{x}_{n}\}$ is a sequence in X such that $\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$ for all n and $\{{x}_{n}\}\to x\in X$ as $n\to +\mathrm{\infty}$, then
$$\alpha ({T}^{1}{x}_{n},{T}^{1}x)\ge 1,$$(5)
for all n.
Theorem 2.2 If in Theorem 2.1 we replace the continuity of T by the condition (P), then the result holds true.
Proof Following the proof of Theorem 2.1, we see that $\{{x}_{n}\}$ is a sequence in X such that $\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$ for all n and $\{{x}_{n}\}\to u\in X$ as $n\to +\mathrm{\infty}$. Now, in view of condition (P), we infer that
for all $n\in \mathbb{N}$. Owing to inequalities (3) and (4), we get
Letting $n\to +\mathrm{\infty}$ in the above inequality and due to the continuity of ξ at $t=0$, we obtain
That is, either $d(u,{T}^{1}u)=0$ or $d(u,Tu)=0$. This implies that u is a fixed point of T. □
We shall present some examples to illustrate the validity of our results.
Example 2.2 Let $X=[0,+\mathrm{\infty})$ endowed with the metric
Define the mappings $T:X\to X$ and $\xi \in \chi $ by $T(x)={x}^{2}$ for all $x\in X$. Consider the mapping $\alpha :X\times X\to [0,+\mathrm{\infty})$ by
Clearly, T is continuous and generalized $(\xi ,\alpha )$expansive mapping with $\xi (a)=\frac{a}{2}$ for all $a\ge 0$. In fact, for all $x,y\in X$, we have
Moreover, there exists ${x}_{0}=0\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},{T}^{1}{x}_{0})=\alpha (0,0)\ge 1$. Now, we proceed to show that ${T}^{1}$ is αadmissible. Let $x,y\in X$ such that $\alpha (x,y)\ge 1$ implying that $x=y$. Now, by the definition of ${T}^{1}$ and α, we obtain ${T}^{1}x={T}^{1}y$. Thus, $\alpha ({T}^{1}x,{T}^{1}y)\ge 1$, that is, ${T}^{1}$ is αadmissible. Now, all the conditions of Theorem 2.1 are satisfied. Consequently, T has a fixed point. In this example, 0 and 1 are two fixed points of T.
Now, we give an example involving a function T that is not continuous.
Example 2.3 Let $X=[0,+\mathrm{\infty})$ endowed with the standard metric $d(x,y)=xy$ for all $x,y\in X$. Define the mappings $T:X\to X$ and $\alpha :X\times X\to [0,+\mathrm{\infty})$ by
and
Owing to the discontinuity of T at 1, Theorem 2.1 is not applicable in this case. Clearly, T is a generalized $(\xi ,\alpha )$expansive mapping with $\xi (a)=\frac{a}{2}$ for all $a\ge 0$. In fact, for all $x,y\in X$, we infer that
Moreover, there exists ${x}_{0}=1\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},{T}^{1}{x}_{0})=\alpha (1,1)\ge 1$. Now, we need to show that ${T}^{1}$ is αadmissible. Let $x,y\in X$ such that $\alpha (x,y)\ge 1$ implying that $x\ge 1$ and $y\ge 1$. By the definition of ${T}^{1}$ and α, we get $\alpha ({T}^{1}x,{T}^{1}y)\ge 1$. Thus, ${T}^{1}$ is αadmissible.
Now, let $\{{x}_{n}\}$ be a sequence in X such that $\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$ for all n and $\{{x}_{n}\}\to x\in X$ as $n\to +\mathrm{\infty}$. Since $\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$ for all n, in view of definition of α, we get ${x}_{n}\ge 1$ for all n and $x\ge 1$. Thus, $\alpha ({T}^{1}{x}_{n},{T}^{1}x)=1$.
Therefore, all the conditions of Theorem 2.2 are satisfied, and so T has a fixed point. Here, 0 and 1 are two fixed points of T.
If we take $\alpha (x,y)=1$ in Theorem 2.1, we get the following result.
Corollary 2.3 Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space and $T:X\to X$ be a bijective map. Suppose that T satisfies the following condition:
where $m(x,y)=min\{d(x,y),d(x,Tx),d(y,Ty)\}$ and $\xi \in \chi $. Suppose also that

(i)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},{T}^{1}{x}_{0})\ge 1$;

(ii)
T is continuous.
Then T has a fixed point, that is, there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Remark 2.1 Let $(X,d)$ be a metric space and $T:X\to X$ be a map. Then the following inequality is evidently satisfied:
where $a,b,c>1$.
As a consequence of the observation above, one can deduce the following results from Theorem 2.1.
Corollary 2.4 Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space and $T:X\to X$ be a bijective. Suppose that T satisfies the following condition:
where $a+b+c>1$ and $\xi \in \chi $. Suppose also that

(i)
${T}^{1}$ is αadmissible;

(ii)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},{T}^{1}{x}_{0})\ge 1$;

(iii)
T is continuous.
Then T has a fixed point, that is, there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Corollary 2.5 Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space and $T:X\to X$ be a bijective map. Suppose that T satisfies for $\xi \in \chi $
We suppose also that

(i)
${T}^{1}$ is αadmissible;

(ii)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},{T}^{1}{x}_{0})\ge 1$;

(iii)
T is continuous.
Then T has a fixed point, that is, there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Corollary 2.6 Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space and $T:X\to X$ be a bijective map. Suppose that T satisfies for $\xi \in \chi $
Suppose also that

(i)
${T}^{1}$ is αadmissible;

(ii)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that $\alpha ({x}_{0},{T}^{1}{x}_{0})\ge 1$;

(iii)
T is continuous.
Then T has a fixed point, that is, there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Corollary 2.7 Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space and $T:X\to X$ be a bijective map. Suppose that T is continuous, satisfying the following condition:
where $\xi \in \chi $. Then T has a fixed point, that is, there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Proof By taking $\alpha (x,y)=1$ for all $x,y\in X$ in Corollary 2.6, we get the proof of this corollary. □
Corollary 2.8 Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space and $T:X\to X$ be a bijective map. Suppose that T is continuous, satisfying the following condition:
where $a>1$. Then T has a fixed point, that is, there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Proof By taking $\xi (t)=kt$, where $k<1$ and $a=\frac{1}{k}$ in Corollary 2.7, we get the proof of this corollary. □
Remark 2.2 If we replace the continuity assumption of T by the condition (P) in Corollary 2.5, Corollary 2.4, Corollary 2.6, Corollary 2.7,Corollary 2.8, then the result holds true.
3 Consequences
3.1 Fixedpoint theorems on metric spaces endowed with a partial order
Recently, there have been tremendous growth in the study of fixedpoint problems of contractive mappings in metric spaces endowed with a partial order. The first result in this direction was given by Turinici [12], where he generalized the Banach contraction principle in partially ordered sets. Some applications of Turinici’s theorem to matrix equations were demonstrated by Ran and Reurings [13]. Later, numerous important results had been obtained concerning the existence of a fixed point for contraction type mappings in partially ordered metric spaces by Bhaskar and Lakshmikantham [4], Nieto and Lopez [7, 14], Agarwal et al. [15], Lakshmikantham and Ćirić [6] and Samet [16] etc. In this section, we will deduce some fixedpoint results on a metric space endowed with a partial order. For this, we require the following concepts.
Definition 3.1 Let $(X,\u2aaf)$ be a partially ordered set and $T:X\to X$ be a given mapping. We say that T is nondecreasing with respect to ⪯ if
Definition 3.2 Let $(X,\u2aaf)$ be a partially ordered set. A sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}\subset X$ is said to be nondecreasing with respect to ⪯ if ${x}_{n}\u2aaf{x}_{n+1}$ for all n.
Definition 3.3 Let $(X,\u2aaf)$ be a partially ordered set and d be a metric on X. We say that $(X,\u2aaf,d)$ is regular if for every nondecreasing sequence $\{{x}_{n}\}\subset X$ such that ${x}_{n}\to x\in X$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty}$, there exists a subsequence $\{{x}_{n(k)}\}$ of $\{{x}_{n}\}$ such that $\{{x}_{n(k)}\}\u2aafx$ for all k.
Now, we have the following result.
Corollary 3.1 Let $(X,\u2aaf)$ be a partially ordered set and d be a metric on X such that $(X,d)$ is complete. Let $T:X\to X$ be a bijective mapping such that ${T}^{1}$ is a nondecreasing mapping with respect to ⪯ satisfying the following condition for all $x,y\in X$ with $x\u2ab0y$:
where $\xi \in \chi $ and
Suppose also that

(i)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that ${x}_{0}\u2aaf{T}^{1}{x}_{0}$;

(ii)
T is continuous or $(X,\u2aaf,d)$ is regular.
Then T has a fixed point, that is, there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Proof Let us define the mapping $\alpha :X\times X\to [0,\mathrm{\infty})$ by
Clearly, T is a generalized $(\xi ,\alpha )$expansive mapping, that is,
for all $x,y\in X$. In view of condition (i), we have $\alpha ({x}_{0},{T}^{1}{x}_{0})\ge 1$. Owing to the monotonicity of ${T}^{1}$, we get
This shows that ${T}^{1}$ is αadmissible. Now, if T is continuous, the existence of a fixed point follows from Theorem 2.1. Suppose now that $(X,\u2aaf,d)$ is regular. Assume that $\{{x}_{n}\}$ is a sequence in X such that $\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$ for all n and ${x}_{n}\to x\in X$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty}$. Due to the regularity hypotheses, there exists a subsequence $\{{x}_{n(k)}\}$ of $\{{x}_{n}\}$ such that ${x}_{n(k)}\u2aafx$ for all k. Now, in view of the definition of α, we obtain $\alpha ({x}_{n(k)},x)\ge 1$ for all k. Thus, we get the existence of a fixed point in this case from Theorem 2.2. □
Regarding Lemma 2.1, the following is a natural consequence of the above corollary.
Corollary 3.2 Let $(X,\u2aaf)$ be a partially ordered set and d be a metric on X such that $(X,d)$ is complete. Let $T:X\to X$ be a bijective mapping such that ${T}^{1}$ is a nondecreasing mapping with respect to ⪯ satisfying the following condition for all $x,y\in X$ with $x\u2ab0y$:
where $a+b+c>1$. Suppose also that

(i)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that ${x}_{0}\u2aaf{T}^{1}{x}_{0}$;

(ii)
T is continuous or $(X,\u2aaf,d)$ is regular.
Then T has a fixed point, that is, there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Corollary 3.3 Let $(X,\u2aaf)$ be a partially ordered set and d be a metric on X such that $(X,d)$ is complete. Let $T:X\to X$ be a bijective mapping such that ${T}^{1}$ be a nondecreasing mapping with respect to ⪯ satisfying the following condition for all $x,y\in X$ with $x\u2ab0y$:
where $\xi \in \chi $. Suppose also that

(i)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that ${x}_{0}\u2aaf{T}^{1}{x}_{0}$;

(ii)
T is continuous or $(X,\u2aaf,d)$ is regular.
Then T has a fixed point, that is, there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Proof If we take $m(x,y)=d(x,y)$ in Corollary 3.1, then we get the proof of this corollary. □
Corollary 3.4 Let $(X,\u2aaf)$ be a partially ordered set and d be a metric on X such that $(X,d)$ is complete. Let $T:X\to X$ be a bijective mapping such that ${T}^{1}$ is a nondecreasing mapping with respect to ⪯ satisfying the following condition for all $x,y\in X$ with $x\u2ab0y$:
where $k>1$. Suppose also that

(i)
there exists ${x}_{0}\in X$ such that ${x}_{0}\u2aaf{T}^{1}{x}_{0}$;

(ii)
T is continuous or $(X,\u2aaf,d)$ is regular.
Then T has a fixed point, that is, there exists $u\in X$ such that $Tu=u$.
Proof If we take $\xi (t)=at$, where $a<1$ and $k=\frac{1}{a}$ in Corollary 3.3, then we get the proof of this corollary. □
3.2 Fixedpoint theorems for cyclic contractive mappings
Kirk et al. [17] in 2003 generalized the Banach contraction mapping principle by introducing cyclic representations and cyclic contractions. A mapping $T:A\cup B\to A\cup B$ is called cyclic if $T(A)\subseteq B$ and $T(B)\subseteq A$, where A, B are nonempty subsets of a metric space $(X,d)$. Moreover, T is called a cyclic contraction if there exists $k\in (0,1)$ such that $d(Tx,Ty)\le kd(x,y)$ for all $x\in A$ and $y\in B$. It is to be noted that although a contraction is continuous, cyclic contractions need not be. This is one of the important benefits of this theorem. In the last decade, various authors have used the cyclic representations and cyclic contractions to derive various fixedpoint results. See for example [18–23].
Corollary 3.5 Let ${\{{A}_{i}\}}_{i=1}^{2}$ be nonempty closed subsets of a complete metric space $(X,d)$ and $T:Y\to Y$ be a given bijective mapping, where $Y={A}_{1}\cup {A}_{2}$. Suppose that the following conditions hold:

(I)
${T}^{1}({A}_{1})\subseteq {A}_{2}$ and ${T}^{1}({A}_{2})\subseteq {A}_{1}$;

(II)
there exists a function $\xi \in \chi $ such that
$$\xi (d(Tx,Ty))\ge m(x,y),\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\mathrm{\forall}(x,y)\in {A}_{1}\times {A}_{2}.$$(19)
Then T has a unique fixed point that belongs to ${A}_{1}\cap {A}_{2}$.
Proof As ${A}_{1}$ and ${A}_{2}$ are closed subsets of the complete metric space $(X,d)$, then $(Y,d)$ is complete. Let us define the mapping
In view of (II) and the definition of α, we infer that
for all $x,y\in Y$. Thus, T is a generalized $(\xi ,\alpha )$expansive mapping.
Let $(x,y)\in Y\times Y$ such that $\alpha (x,y)\ge 1$. If $(x,y)\in {A}_{1}\times {A}_{2}$, from (I), $({T}^{1}x,{T}^{1}y)\in {A}_{2}\times {A}_{1}$, which implies that $\alpha ({T}^{1}x,{T}^{1}y)\ge 1$. Therefore, in all cases, we have $\alpha ({T}^{1}x,{T}^{1}y)\ge 1$. This implies that ${T}^{1}$ is αadmissible. Also, in view of (I), for any $u\in {A}_{1}$, we get $(u,{T}^{1}u)\in {A}_{1}\times {A}_{2}$, thereby implying that $\alpha (u,{T}^{1}u)\ge 1$.
Now, let $\{{x}_{n}\}$ be a sequence in X such that $\alpha ({x}_{n},{x}_{n+1})\ge 1$ for all n and ${x}_{n}\to x\in X$ as $n\to \mathrm{\infty}$. From the definition of α, we have
As $({A}_{1}\times {A}_{2})\cup ({A}_{2}\times {A}_{1})$ is a closed set with respect to the Euclidean metric, we infer that
which implies that $x\in {A}_{1}\cap {A}_{2}$. So, we obtain from the definition of α the result that $\alpha ({x}_{n},x)\ge 1$ for all n. □
From Lemma 2.1, one get deduce the following result.
Corollary 3.6 Let ${\{{A}_{i}\}}_{i=1}^{2}$ be nonempty closed subsets of a complete metric space $(X,d)$ and $T:Y\to Y$ be a given bijective mapping, where $Y={A}_{1}\cup {A}_{2}$. Suppose that the following conditions hold:

(I)
${T}^{1}({A}_{1})\subseteq {A}_{2}$ and ${T}^{1}({A}_{2})\subseteq {A}_{1}$;

(II)
there exist constants a, b, c such that
$$\xi (d(Tx,Ty))\ge ad(x,y)+bd(x,Tx)+cd(y,Ty),\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\mathit{\text{where}}a+b+c1,$$(23)
Then T has a unique fixed point that belongs to ${A}_{1}\cap {A}_{2}$.
Corollary 3.7 Let ${\{{A}_{i}\}}_{i=1}^{2}$ be nonempty closed subsets of a complete metric space $(X,d)$ and $T:Y\to Y$ be a given bijective mapping, where $Y={A}_{1}\cup {A}_{2}$. Suppose that the following conditions hold:

(I)
${T}^{1}({A}_{1})\subseteq {A}_{2}$ and ${T}^{1}({A}_{2})\subseteq {A}_{1}$;

(II)
there exists a function $\xi \in \chi $ such that
$$\xi (d(Tx,Ty))\ge d(x,y),\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\mathrm{\forall}(x,y)\in {A}_{1}\times {A}_{2}.$$(24)
Then T has a unique fixed point that belongs to ${A}_{1}\cap {A}_{2}$.
Proof If we take $m(x,y)=d(x,y)$ in Corollary 3.5, then we get the proof of this corollary. □
Corollary 3.8 Let ${\{{A}_{i}\}}_{i=1}^{2}$ be nonempty closed subsets of a complete metric space $(X,d)$ and $T:Y\to Y$ be a given bijective mapping, where $Y={A}_{1}\cup {A}_{2}$. Suppose that the following conditions hold:

(I)
${T}^{1}({A}_{1})\subseteq {A}_{2}$ and ${T}^{1}({A}_{2})\subseteq {A}_{1}$;

(II)
there exists a constant $k>1$ such that
$$d(Tx,Ty)\ge kd(x,y),\phantom{\rule{1em}{0ex}}\mathrm{\forall}(x,y)\in {A}_{1}\times {A}_{2}.$$(25)
Then T has a unique fixed point that belongs to ${A}_{1}\cap {A}_{2}$.
Proof By taking $\xi (t)=at$, where $a<1$ and $k=\frac{1}{a}$ in Corollary 3.7, we get the proof of this corollary. □
