Then, by using a Himmelberg type fixed point theorem in L[GAMMA]-spaces due to Park, they establish existence theorems of solutions for systems of generalized quasivariational inclusion problems, systems of variational equations, and systems of generalized quasiequilibrium problems in L[GAMMA]-spaces.
The Banach fixed point theorem [1] (also known as a contraction mapping principle) is an important tool in nonlinear analysis.
De Blasi [3] introduced the concept of measure of weak noncompactness and proved the analogue of Sadovskiis fixed point theorem for the weak topology (see also [4]).
They proved existence and uniqueness results for problem (3)-(4) by using the classical fixed point theorems, such as Banach's fixed point theorem, Boyd and Wong fixed point theorem for nonlinear contractions, and Leray-Schauder nonlinear alternative.
It is worth mentioning that Caristi's fixed point theorem is equivalent to the Ekeland variational principle [8].
In the paper, we introduce the concept of a new type of contraction maps, and we establish a new fixed point theorem for such contraction maps in the setting of generalized metric spaces.
By exploiting Schauder's Fixed Point Theorem the existence of periodic TWs is established.
