Let (X,d) be a Polish space, CB(X) the family of all nonempty closed and bounded subsets of X, and (Ω,Σ) a measurable space. A pair of a hybrid measurable mappings f:Ω×XX and T:Ω×XCB(X), satisfying the inequality (1.2), are introduced and investigated. It is proved that if X is complete, T(ω,), f(ω,) are continuous for all ωΩ, T(,x), f(,x) are measurable for all xX, and f(ω×X)=X for each ωΩ, then there is a measurable mapping ξ:ΩX such that f(ω,ξ(w))T(ω,ξ(w)) for all ωΩ. This result generalizes and extends the fixed point theorem of Papageorgiou (1984) and many classical fixed point theorems.
