In this paper, we define -admissible and --fuzzy cone contraction in fuzzy cone metric space to prove some fixed point theorems. Some related sequences with contraction mappings have been discussed. Ultimately, our theoretical results have been utilized to show the existence of the solution to a nonlinear integral equation. This application is also illustrative of how fuzzy metric spaces can be used in other integral type operators.

1. Introduction

The concept of fuzzy metric space (FM space) was first introduced by Kramosil and Michale [1] while George and Veeramani [2] illustrated some well-known FM space properties. In the sense of Kramosil and Michale [1], George and Sapena [3] and Grabice [4] introduced the idea of fuzzy contraction of complete FM spaces and developed some fixed point (FP) results. Some more related results can be found in [58]. Samet et al. [9] proposed the concept of --contraction in complete metric spaces in 2012. Later, Gopal and Vetro [10] presented the concepts of and fuzzy contractive mappings, as well as several novel FP theorems in FM spaces. More FP results in the context of FM spaces can be found in references (see, for example, [1115]). Mohammadi et al. [16] proved some generalized contraction results in FM spaces with application in integral equations. Recently, the rational type fuzzy contraction concept in complete FM space is given by Rehman et al. [17], and they proved some FP results with an application.

Oner et al. [18] introduced the idea of fuzzy cone metric space (FCM space), proved some basic properties, and developed the first version of “Banach contraction principle for fixed point” in FCM spaces which is stated as follows: “let be a complete FCM space in which fuzzy cone contractive sequences are Cauchy and let be a fuzzy cone contractive mapping being the contractive constant. Then, has a unique fixed point.” Ur Rehman et al. [19] presented some extended “fuzzy cone Banach contraction results” in FCM spaces for some weaker conditions. In topology and analysis, the definition of FCM spaces with different contractive conditions has been commonly used. For further reading, refer to [2028].

The definition of admissibility has been applied to certain directions by several writers. For a pair of functions, some authors expanded the concept of admissibility. We may advise readers to look for more work in the field of admissibility, as well as references (see [2933]). Recently, Islam et al. [34] established some FP results in cone -metric space by using generalized -admissible Hardy–Rogers’ contractions over Banachs algebras with application.

In this paper, we define that a mapping is -admissible with respect to and fuzzy cone contraction in FCM space. By using the concept of -admissibility with respect to under mapping , we establish some FP theorems under the fuzzy cone contraction conditions in FCM space with an example. In support of our work, we present an integral type application. By using this concept, one can prove different contractive type FP results for nonlinear mappings with different types of applications in the context of FM spaces. The paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we introduce the preliminary concepts to support our work. In Section 3, we present some FP results by using different types of contraction conditions in FCM spaces with an illustrative example. In Section 4, we present an integral equation application to validate the concept defined in the paper. Finally, in Section 5, we discuss the conclusion.

The continuous -norm is defined by by Schweizer and Sklar [35].

Definition 1 (see [35]). An operation is called continuous -norm if it satisfies the following conditions:(i) is commutative, associative, and continuous(ii) and , whenever, and , for each The basic -norms, i.e., product, minimum, and Lukasiewicz continuous -norms are defined as follows (see [35]):(i)(ii)(iii)

Definition 2 (see [36]). A subset of a real Banach space is called cone if(i), closed, and (ii) and , then (iii), then A cone and is a partial ordering on via which is defined by iff . stands for and , while stands for . All the cones in this paper have a nonempty interior.

Definition 7. Let be a FCM space, and let be two functions.
