Simulation functions and Boyd-Wong type results

S. Aleksić, S. Chandok, S. Radenović

In this paper we give new and much shorter proofs of Boyd-Wong and Meir-Keeler type results. Also, we define a new form of Boyd-Wong type contraction mappings using simulation functions and obtain some sufficient conditions for the existence and uniqueness of a fixed point for such class of mappings in the setting of metric spaces. Also, we present some results regarding the property P for these well-known types of self-mappings.
