The role of equivalent metrics in fixed point theory

Adrian Petruşel, Ioan A. Rus, Marcel-Adrain Şerban


Metrical fixed point theory is accomplished by a wide class of terms:
\item"$\bullet$" operators (bounded, Lipschitz, contraction, contractive,
nonexpansive, noncontractive, expansive, dilatation, isometry, similarity,
Picard, weakly Picard, Bessaga, Janos, Caristi, pseudocontractive,
accretive, etc.),
\item"$\bullet$" convexity (strict, uniform, hyper, etc.),

\item"$\bullet$" deffect of some properties (measure of noncompactness, measure of nonconvexity, minimal displacement, etc.),

\item"$\bullet$" data dependence (stability, Ulam stability, well-posedness,
shadowing property, etc.),

\item"$\bullet$" attractor,

\item"$\bullet$" basin of attraction$\ldots$
The purpose of this paper is to study several properties of these concepts with
respect to equivalent metrics.
