#### Abstract

We investigate the existence of a fixed point of certain contractive multivalued mappings of integral type by using the admissible mapping. Our results generalize the several results on the topic in the literature involving Branciari, and Feng and Liu. We also construct some examples to illustrate our results.

#### 1. Preliminaries and Introduction

Fixed point theory is one of the most celebrated research areas that has an application potential not only in nonlinear but also in several branches of mathematics. As a consequence of this fact, several fixed point results have been reported. It is not easy to know, manage, and use all results of this reich theory to get an application. To overcome such problems and clarify the literature, several authors have suggested a more general construction in a way that a number of existing results turn into a consequence of the proposed one. One of the examples of this trend is the investigations of fixed point of certain operator by using the -admissible mapping introduced Samet et al. [1]. This paper has been appreciated by several authors and this trend has been supported by reporting several interesting results; see for example [2–12].

In this paper, we define ()-contractive multivalued mappings of integral type and discuss the existence of a fixed point of such mappings. Our construction and hence results improve, extend, and generalize several results including Branciari [13] and Feng and Liu [14].

In what follows, we recall some basic definitions, notions, notations, and fundamental results for the sake of completeness. Let be a family of nondecreasing functions, such that for each , where is the th iterate of . It is known that, for each , we have for all and for[1]. We denote bythe set of all Lebesgue integrable mappings,which is summable on each compact subset ofand, for each.

Letbe a metric space. We denote bythe space of all nonempty subsets of, bythe space of all nonempty bounded subsets of, and bythe space of all nonempty closed subsets of. Forand, For every, We denotebywhen. If, for, there exists a sequenceinsuch that, thenis said to be an orbit ofat. A mapping isorbitally lower semicontinuous at, ifis a sequence inandimplies. Branciari [13] extended the Banach contraction principle [15] in the following way.

Theorem 1. *Letbe a complete metric space and letbe a mapping such that
**
for each, whereand. Thenhas a unique fixed point.*

Since then many authors used integral type contractive conditions to prove fixed point theorems in different settings; see for example [12, 16–22]. Feng and Liu [14] extended the result of Branciari [13] to multivalued mappings as follows.

Theorem 2 (see [14]). *Letbe a complete metric space and letbe a mapping. Assume that for eachand, there existssuch that

*Definition 3 (see [3]). *Letbe a metric space andbe a mapping. A mappingis-admissible if, where.

*Definition 4 (see [3]). *Letbe a metric space. A mappingis called-contractive if there exist two functionsandsuch that

Theorem 5 (see [3]). *Letbe a complete metric space, letbe a function, letbe a strictly increasing map, and letbe a closed-valued-admissible and-contractive multifunction on. Suppose that there existandsuch that. Assume that ifis a sequence insuch thatfor alland, thenfor all. Thenhas a fixed point.*

*Definition 6 (see [2]). *Letbe a metric space and letbe a mapping. We say thatis a generalized-contractive if there existssuch that

#### 2. Main Results

Theorem 18. *Letbe a complete metric space and letbe an-admissible subintegral type-contractive mapping. Assume that there existandsuch that. Then there exists an orbitofatandsuch that. Moreover,such thatif and only ifisorbitally lower semicontinuous at.*

*Proof. *By the hypothesis, there existandsuch that. Sinceis-admissible, then. Forand, we have

*Remark 21. *Letfor all; Theorem 18 reduces to Theorem 7 in Section 1.

*Remark 22. *Note that subadditivity of the integral was needed in the proofs of Theorems 14 and 18 in order to obtain inequalities (26) and (43). It is natural to ask wether the conclusions of Theorems 14 and 18 are valid if we replace subintegral contractive conditions (13) and (33) by integral contractive conditions (8) and (32), respectively. Looking at our proofs, we can say that it will be true if the inequalities (26) and (43) hold. Here we would like to mention that many authors (see for example [14, 23]) while proving the results on integral contractions have not assumed that the integral is subadditive but indeed they used the subadditivity of the integral in the proofs of their results while obtaining the inequalities comparable to inequalities (26) and (43).

#### 3. Application

In this section, we obtain some fixed point results for partially ordered metric spaces, as consequences of aforementioned results. Moreover, we apply our result to prove the existence of solution for an integral equation.

Letandbe subsets of a partially ordered set. We say that, if for eachand, we have.

Theorem 23. *Letbe a complete ordered metric space and letbe a mapping such that for eachandwith, there existssatisfying

*Proof. *Defineby
By using hypothesis of corollary and definition of, we have. Asimplies, by using the definitions ofand, we have thatimplies. Moreover, it is easy to check thatis an integral type-contractive mapping. Therefore, by Theorem 14, there exists an orbitofatandsuch that. Moreover,is a fixed point ofif and only ifisorbitally lower semicontinuous at.

Consideringandfor each, Theorem 23 reduces to following result.

Corollary 24. *Letbe a complete ordered metric space and letbe a nondecreasing mapping such that, for eachwith, we have
**
where. Assume that there existssuch that. Then there exists an orbitofatandsuch that. Moreover,is a fixed point ofif and only ifisorbitally lower semicontinuous at.*

Consider an integral equation of the form where is continuous and nondecreasing.

Theorem 25. *Assume that*(i)*for, withfor each, we have
for each, where;*(ii)*for each, there exists such that
**Then there exists an iterative sequence, starting from, and such that. Moreover,is a solution of (53) if and only ifis lower semicontinuous at, where.*

*Proof. *It is easy to see that is complete with respect to the metric. We define partial ordering onas followsif and only iffor each. Defineby, where, for each. From (ii), we have. For, letand; that is, and, for each. Then, for eachwith, we have
That is, for eachwith. Clearly,is nondecreasing. Therefore, all conditions of Corollary 24 hold and the conclusions follow from Corollary 24.
