We show some geometric conditions on a Banach space X concerning the Jordan-von Neumann constant, Zbăganu constant, characteristic of (separation) noncompact convexity, and the coefficient R(1, X), the weakly convergent sequence coefficient, which imply the existence of fixed points for multivalued nonexpansive mappings.
