Common Fixed Point Results for Occasionally Weakly Compatible Maps in G-Symmetric Spaces


The notion of a G-symmetric space is introduced and the common fixed points for some pairs of occasionally weakly compatible maps satisfying some contractive conditions in a G-symmetric space are proved. The results extend and improve some results in literature.
