Let C be a closed convex subset of a complete metrizable topological vector space (X,d) and T:CC a mapping that satisfies d(Tx,Ty)ad(x,y)+bd(x,Tx)+cd(y,Ty)+ed(y,Tx)+fd(x,Ty) for all x,yC, where 0<a<1, b0, c0, e0, f0, and a+b+c+e+f=1. Then T has a unique fixed point. The above theorem, which is a generalization and an extension of the results of several authors, is proved in this paper. In addition, we use the Mann iteration to approximate the fixed point of T.
