We introduce the class of generalized ( 𝜓 , 𝜙 ) -weak contractive set-valued mappings on a metric space. We establish that such mappings have a unique common end point under certain weak conditions. The theorem obtained generalizes several recent results on single-valued as well as certain set-valued mappings.
