-Weak Contractions in Neutrosophic Cone Metric Spaces via Fixed Point Theorems
In this manuscript, we obtain common fixed point theorems in the neutrosophic cone metric space. Also, notion of -weak contraction is defined in the neutrosophic cone metric space by using the idea of altering distance function. Finally, we review many examples of cone metric spaces to verify some properties.
The concept of fuzzy sets was introduced by Zadeh . The study of fuzzy topological spaces was initiated by Chang . The notion of intuitionistic fuzzy sets was introduced by Atanassov . The notion of intuitionistic -topological spaces was introduced by Atanassov and Stoeva  by extending -topology to intuitionistic -fuzzy setting. The notion of the intuitionistic fuzzy topological space was introduced by Çoker . The concept of generalized fuzzy closed set was presented by Balasubramanian and Sundaram . Smarandache extended the intuitionistic fuzzy sets to neutrosophic sets . After the introduction of the neutrosophic set concept [8, 9] in 2019 by Smarandache and Shumrani on the nonstandard analysis, the nonstandard neutrosophic topology was developed. In recent years, neutrosophic algebraic structures have been investigated. Neutrosophy has laid the foundation for a whole family of new mathematical theories, generalizing both their classical and fuzzy counterparts, such as a neutrosophic theory in any field, see [10, 11]. Recently, there were introduced neutrosophic mapping and neutrosophic connectedness. The concept of the neutrosophic metric space presented by  Al-Omeri et al. is a generalization of the intuitionistic fuzzy metric space due to Veeramani and George . In 2019 and 2020, Smarandache generalized the classical Algebraic Structures to NeutroAlgebraic Structures (or NeutroAlgebras) whose operations and axioms are partially true, partially indeterminate, and partially false as extensions of Partial Algebra and to AntiAlgebraic Structures (or AntiAlgebras) whose operations and axioms are totally false. And in general, he extended any classical structure, in no matter what field of knowledge, to a NeutroStructure and an AntiStructure, see [14, 15]. In 2007, Huang and Zhang  introduced the concept of cone metric space and proved some fixed point theorems for contractive mappings. Recently, Öner et al.  introduced the concept of the fuzzy cone metric space that generalized the corresponding notions of the fuzzy metric space by George and Veeramani  and proved the fuzzy cone Banach contraction theorem. In 2010, Vetro et al.  extended the notion of -weak contraction to fuzzy metric spaces and proved some common fixed point theorems for four mappings in fuzzy metric spaces by using the idea of an altering distance function. Gupta et al. and Wasfi et al. [19, 20] introduced the notions of E. A and common E. A on the modified intuitionistic generalized fuzzy metric space. They extended the notions of the common limit range property and E. A property for coupled maps on modified intuitionistic fuzzy metric spaces. This paper is devoted to the study of extending and generalizing the -weak contraction to the neutrosophic cone metric space and prove some results. In Section 2, we will recall some materials which will be used throughout this paper. In Section 3, we give definitions and present the cone neutrosophic metric space and explain a number of properties. In Section 4, the results obtained from theorems and theoretical application of the neutrosophic fixed point are also presented. The last section contains the conclusions of the paper.

Proof. Let be an arbitrary point. Let point such that . This can be done since . Continuing this process, we obtain a sequence such that . We assume that for all ; otherwise, and have a coincidence point. Now, we getwhich suppose that mapping is nondecreasing; hence, . Hence, is an increasing sequence of positive real numbers in . Let . We prove that . If not, there exists such that . Then, from the above inequality on taking , we obtainwhich is a contradiction. Therefore, as . Now, for each , by Definition 18, we getIt follows that . At the same time, we havein which considering that the mapping is nondecreasing, then . Thus, is a decreasing sequence of positive real numbers in . Let . We show that for all . If this is not the case, there exists such that . Then, it follows from (5), by taking , that , which is a contraction. Therefore, as . Now, for each , by Definition 14 (9), we haveIt follows that . Hence, is a Cauchy sequence.

In this paper, the definition of the neutrosophic cone metric space is introduced and studied. Based on this definition, we also stated and proved some fixed point theorems on the neutrosophic CMS. We provided a description of the example and investigated some properties in Section 3. We established and extended the definition of the -weak contraction in the intuitionistic generalized fuzzy cone metric space.
