ON SEHGAL'S MAPS WITH A CONTRACTIVE ITERATE AT A POINTLjubomir \'Ciri\'cKatedra za matematiku, Masinski fakultet, Beograd, YugoslaviaAbstract: Let $(X,d)$ be a complete metric space and $T$ a mapping of $X$ into itself. Suppose that for each $x\in X$ there exists a positive integer $n=n(x)$ such that for all $y\in X$, $$ d(T^nx,T^ny)\leq \alpha\max\{d(x,y), d(x,Ty), d(x,T^2y),\dots, d(x,T^ny), d(x,T^nx)\}, $$ holds tor some $\alpha<1$. With these assumptions our main result states that $T$ has a unique fixed point. This generalizes an earlier result of V.\ M.\ Sehgal and a recent result of the author. Keywords: Mappings with contractive iteration at a point, fixed points, convergence of iterations Classification (MSC2000): 54H25; 47H10 Full text of the article:
