Abstract

We introduce the concept of multivalued pseudo-Picard (MPP) operator on a metric space. This concept is weaker than multivalued weakly Picard (MWP) operator, which is given by M. Berinde and V. Berinde (2007). Then, we give both fixed point results and examples for MPP operators. Also, we obtain some ordered fixed point results for multivalued maps as application.
