A concept of g-monotone mapping is introduced, and some fixed and common fixed point theorems for g-non-decreasing generalized nonlinear contractions in partially ordered complete metric spaces are proved. Presented theorems are generalizations of very recent fixed point theorems due to Agarwal et al. (2008).
