# Contraction on Complete Rectangular Metric Spaces

**Academic Editor:**Nageswari Shanmugalingam

#### Abstract

In this paper, we present some fixed point results for generalized contraction in the framework of compete rectangular metric spaces. Further, we establish some fixed point theorems for this type of mappings defined on such spaces. Our results generalize and improve many of the well-known results. Moreover, to support our main results, we give an illustrative example.

#### 1. Introduction

The well-known Banach contraction theory is one of the methods used, which states that if is a complete metric space and is self-mapping with contraction, then has a unique fixed point [1].

In 2000, Branciari [2] introduced the notion of generalized metric spaces, for example, the triangle inequality is replaced by the inequality for all pairwise distinct points , , , and . Since then, several results have been proposed by many mathematicians on such spaces (see [3â€“8]).

The concept of metric space, as an ambient space in fixed point theory, has been generalized in several directions, such as, metric spaces [9] and generalized metric spaces.

Combining conditions are used for definitions of *b*-metric and generalized metric spaces. Roshan et al. [10] announced the notion of rectangular *b*-metric space.

Hussain et al. [11] introduced the concept of complete rectangular metric space and proved certain results of fixed point theory on such spaces.

In this paper, we provide some fixed point results for generalized contraction in the framework of compete rectangular metric spaces, and also we give two examples to support our results.

Zheng et al. [12] introduced a new type of contractions called -contractions in metric spaces and proved a new fixed point theorems for such mapping.

*Definition 2. *(see [13]). We denote by the set of functions , satisfying the following conditions:â€‰ is increasingâ€‰ for each sequence â€‰ is continuous on

*Definition 3. *(see [12]). We denote by the set of functions : satisfying the following conditions:â€‰ : is nondecreasingâ€‰ for each , â€‰ is continuous on

Lemma 2. *(see [12]). If , then and for each .**In 2014, Hussain et al. [14] introduced a weaker notion than the concept of completeness and called it -completeness for metric spaces.*

*Definition 4. *(see [14]). Let and :. We say that is a triangular admissible mapping ifâ€‰, â€‰, â€‰ for all â€‰ for all

*Definition 5. *(see [14]). Let be a *b*-rectangular metric space and let : be two mappings. The space is said to be as follows:(a)*T* is continuous mapping on , if for given point and sequence in , and for all imply that .(b)*T* is subcontinuous mapping on , if for given point and sequence in , and for all imply that *T*.(c)*T* is continuous mapping on , if for given point and sequence in , and or for all imply that .The following definitions were given by Hussain et al. [11].

*Definition 6. *(see [11]). Let be a rectangular *b*-metric space and let : be two mappings. The space is said to be(a)complete, if every Cauchy sequence in with for all converges in (b), if every Cauchy sequence in with for all converges in (c)complete, if every Cauchy sequence in with or for all converges in

*Definition 7. *(see [11]). Let be a rectangular *b*-metric space and let : be two mappings. The space is said to be(a) is -regular, if , where for all implies for all (b) is subregular, if , where for all implies for all (c) is -regular, if , where or for all implies that or for all .
