We define the concept of the generalized 𝑢 0 -concave operators, which generalize the definition of the 𝑢 0 -concave operators. By using the iterative method and the partial ordering method, we prove the existence and uniqueness of fixed points of this class of the operators. As an example of the application of our results, we show the existence and uniqueness of solutions to a class of the Hammerstein integral equations.
