Traditionally, metric fixed point theory has sought classes of spaces in which a given type of mapping (nonexpansive, assymptotically or generalized nonexpansive, uniformly Lipschitz, etc.) from a nonempty weakly compact convex set into itself always has a fixed point. In some situations the class of space is determined by the application while there is some degree of freedom in constructing the map to be used. With this in mind we seek to relax the conditions on the space by considering more restrictive types of mappings.


Membership to CARMA offers many benefits and is available by invitation to all University of Newcastle academic staff. Associate membership, also by invitation, is available to external researchers and practitioners for three-year renewable terms. Associate members are expected to visit CARMA with some frequency, typically for a total of three to four weeks in a year, and to be involved in one or more ongoing research projects with CARMA members. CARMA is able to assist with the travel and living costs of such visits.
