#### Abstract

We define the notion of -contractive mappings for cone metric space and obtain fixed points of multivalued mappings in connection with Hausdorff distance function for closed bounded subsets of cone metric spaces. We obtain some recent results of the literature as corollaries of our main theorem. Moreover, a nontrivial example of -contractive mapping satisfying all conditions of our main result has been constructed.

#### 1. Introduction

Banach contraction principle is widely recognized as the source of metric fixed point theory. Also, this principle plays an important role in several branches of mathematics. For instance, it has been used to study the existence of solutions for nonlinear equations, systems of linear equations, and linear integral equations and to prove the convergence of algorithms in computational mathematics. Because of its importance for mathematical theory, Banach contraction principle has been extended in many directions.

In 2007, Huang and zhang [1] introduced cone metric space with normal cone, as a generalization of metric space. Rezapour and Hamlbarani [2] presented the results of [1] for the case of cone metric space without normality in cone. Many authors work out on it (see [3, 4]). Cho and Bae [5] introduced the Hausdorff distance function on cone metric spaces and generalized the result of [6] for multivalued mappings.

In 2012, Samet et al. [7] introduced the concept of --contractive type mappings. Their results generalized some ordered fixed point results (see [7]). In [8], Karapinar et al. introduced the notion of a -Meir-Keeler contractive mapping and established some fixed point theorems for the G-Meir-Keeler contractive mapping in the setting of G-metric spaces. For more details in fixed point theory related to our paper, we refer to the reader [9–19]. Asl et al. [20] introduced the notion of --contractive mappings and improved the concept of --contractive mappings along with some fixed point theorems in metric space. Consequently, Ali et al. [21], Mohammadi et al. [22] and Salimi et al. [23] studied the concept of --contractive mappings for proving fixed point results by using generalized contractive conditions in complete metric spaces.

In this paper, we first define the notion of --contractive mappings for cone metric spaces and then we use it to study fixed point theorems for multivalued mappings satisfying --contractive conditions in a complete cone metric space without the assumption of normality. We also furnish a nontrivial example to support our main result.

#### 2. Preliminaries

In the following, we always suppose that is a real Banach space, is a cone in with nonempty interior, and is the partial ordering with respect to . By , we denote the zero element of . A subset is called a cone if and only if(i)is closed, nonempty, and ;(ii);(iii).

For a given cone we define a partial ordering with respect to by if and only if ; will stand for and , while stand for , where denotes the interior of .

*Definition 1 (see [1]). *Let be a nonempty set. A function is said to be a metric, if the following conditions hold:) for all and if and only if ;() for all ;() for all .

The pair is then called a metric space.

Lemma 2 (see [1]). *Let be a metric space, , and let be a sequence in . Then *(i)* converges to whenever for every with there is a natural number such that , for all . We denote this by ;*(ii)* is a Cauchy sequence whenever for every with there is a natural number such that , for all ;*(iii)* is complete cone metric if every Cauchy sequence in is convergent.*

*Remark 3 (see [3]). * The results concerning fixed points and other results, in case of cone spaces with nonnormal cones, cannot be provided by reducing to metric spaces, because in this case neither of the conditions of the lemmas 1–4, in [1] hold. Further, the vector cone metric is not continuous in the general case; that is, from , it need not follow that .

Let be a cone metric space. The following properties of cone metric spaces have been noticed [3]. If and , then . If and , then . If and , then . If for each , then . If , for each , then .() be a sequence in . If and (as ), then there exists such that for all , we have .

With some modifications, we have the following definition from [24].
