#### Abstract

In this article, certain fixed point results for Geraghty-type contractions in the setting of -Complete extended fuzzy -metric spaces are established. An example is elaborated, and a supporting application is also established. Many known existing results are special cases of our obtained results.

#### 1. Introduction

Kramosoil and Michalek [1] defined the notion of a fuzzy metric space (FMS) by using the concept of fuzzy sets introduced by Zadeh [2]. Grabiec [3] gave the concept of weak Cauchy sequences, which is called a -Cauchy sequence and proved the Banach contraction principle (BCP) [4] in the setting of a FMS. George and Veermani [5] modified the definition of a FMS given by Kramosil and Michalek [1] and established some fixed point results. For more works in FMSs, see [6–10].

In 1989, Bakhtin [11] introduced the notion of a -metric space (BMS). Later on, the concept of a BMS was further used by Czerwick [12] to establish different fixed point results on this platform. The study of -metric space endows an imperative place in fixed point theory with multiple aspects. Many mathematicians (Abdeljawad et al. [13, 14], Akkouchi [15], Chifu and Karapinar [16], Kadelburg and Radenović [17], Chauhan and Gupta [18], Kamran et al. [19] and Gupta [20], etc) led the foundation to improve fixed point theory in BMSs. Another innovative task has been achieved by Kamran et al. [21] in 2017 by introducing the notion of an extended -metric space (EBMS), which generalizes the notion of a BMS. Some fixed point results are proved in this new setting. See for instance, the works shown in [22, 23].

By considering an auxiliary function, Geraghty [24] established a generalisation of the Banach contraction principle in the complete metric spaces. Later on, Gupta et al. [25] proved the fixed point theorems for -Geraghty contraction type maps in ordered metric spaces. For more results using Geraghty contraction type maps in metric spaces can be seen in [26–30].

Nǎdǎban [31] generalized the notion of -metric space (BMS) by introducing the concept of fuzzy -metric space. The idea of an extended fuzzy -metric space (EFBMS) was introduced by Mahmood et al. in [32]. In the present article, some fixed point results for Geraghty-type contractions in -complete EFBMS are established. Our results are generalizations of many existing results on FMS. See, for example, [32–35]. At the end, by applying our results, we give a real application.

#### 2. Preliminaries

Recently, the concept of an EFBMS in [32] has been introduced as follows:

*Definition 1 (see [32]). *Let be a non empty set. Given and let be a continuous -norm. A fuzzy set in is called an extended fuzzy -metric on if for all , the following conditions hold: ; if and only if ; ; ; is left continuous, and .Here, is called an EFBMS.

*Remark 1. *Taking , the notion of a FBMS defined in [31] is obtained and by taking , the notion of a FMS defined in [1] is obtained.

*Example 1 (see [32]). *Let and define by . Clearly, is a BMS. Define the mapping byLet be defined byand take the continuous -norm , that is, . Then is an EFBMS.

The notions of convergence, Cauchyness and completeness in an EFBMS can be generalized naturally as follows:

*Definition 2 (see [32]). *Let be an EFBMS.(i)A sequence in is said to be convergent if there exits such that Grabiec [3] gave the concept of weak Cauchyness which we will denote by -Cauchyness as follows:(ii)A sequence in is said to be a -Cauchy sequence if for all and (iii)An EFBMS in which every -Cauchy sequence is convergent is called a -complete EFBMS.
