Abstract In this note, we establish and improve some results on fixed point theory in topological vector spaces. As a generalization of contraction maps, the concept of quasi contraction multivalued maps on a topological vector space will be defined. Further, it is shown that a quasi contraction and closed multivalued map on a topological vector space has a unique fixed point if it is bounded value. Keywords: : Topological vector space, Quasi contraction, Fixed point, Multivalued map. 1 Introduction Fixed point theory has many applications in almost all branches of mathematics. The Banach contraction principles occupies a central position in fixed point theory. Banach s original theorem is expressed in metric spaces and some authors have extended this result in some other versions [1], [4], [6] and [7]. Kirk [5] and Edelstien [3] studied and achieved some basic results in fixed point theory. Here, we would improve their results for multivalued maps in topological vector spaces. For two sets X and Y and each element x of X we associate a nonempty subset F (x) of Y and this correspondence x F (x) is called a multivalued mapping or a multifunction from X into Y ; i.e., F is a function from X to P (Y ), where P (Y ) is the set of all nonempty subsets of Y. The lower inverse of a multivalued mapping F is the multivalued mapping F l of Y into X defined by F l (y) = {x X : y F (x)}, Corresponding author. address: 1
2 also for any nonempty subset B of Y we have, F l (B) = {x X : F (x) B }, finally it is understood that F l ( ) =. The set {x X : F (x) B} is the upper inverse of B and is denoted by F u (B). F is lower semicontinuous (upper semicontinuous), if for every open set U Y, F l (U)(F u (U)) is open in X. It is well known [2] that F is upper semicontinuous at x 0 if for each open set V containing F (x 0 ) there exists a neighborhood U of x 0 such that x U implies that F (x) V. For two multivalued maps F : X P (Y ) and G : Y P (Z) the composition GoF : X P (Z) is defined by GoF (x) = G(y). 2 Main Results y F (x) The following definition of quasi contraction is an extended definition of contraction in metric spaces and we achieve some results which they extend some results in invariant metric spaces. Definition 2.1. Suppose (X, τ) is a topological vector space. A multivalued map F : X P (X) is said to be : (a) quasi contraction map if for all x, y X and any open neighborhood U of 0 there is a constant 0 c < 1 such that x y U implies that F (x) F (y) cu. (b) closed map if x n x, y n y and y n F (x n ) imply that y F (x). (c) bounded valued map if F (x) is a bounded set in X for all x X. (d) upper semicontinuous at x 0 if for each open set V containing F (x 0 ) there exists a neighborhood U(x 0 ) such that x U(x 0 ) implies that F (x) V. It is well known that any contraction multivalued map between metric spaces is continuous. Extending this fact is our next aim. Theorem 2.1. Suppose (X, τ) is a topological vector space and F : X P (X) is quasi contraction. If 0 F (0) then F is upper semicontinuous at 0. Proof. Suppose V is any open neighborhood of F (0). Consider open neighborhood U of 0 for which cu V. Then U = U {0} U. Therefore, F (U) F (U) F (0) cu V. Corollary 2.1. Suppose (X, τ) is a topological vector space and F : X P (X) is quasi contraction. Then F is upper semicontinuous. Proof. Consider x 0 X, y 0 F (x 0 ) and V an open neighborhood of F (x 0 ). Then V y 0 = U is an open neighborhood of 0. Define G(x) = F (x + x 0 ) y 0. We claim that g is contraction, too. To see this, if W is an open neighborhood of 0 and x y W, then G(x) G(y) = (F (x + x 0 ) y 0 ) (F (y + x 0 ) y 0 ) cw. Also, G(0) = F (x 0 ) y 0 contains 0, so from Theorem 2.1 for V y 0, there is open neighborhood W of 0 such that G(W ) V y 0, so F (W + x 0 ) V. 2 ISPACS GmbH
3 Lemma 2.1. Suppose (X, τ) is a locally convex space and x X. If F : X P (X) is a contraction bounded valued map, then any sequence {y n } is a Cauchy sequence, where y n F n (x) for all n N. Proof. Let U be an open convex neighborhood of 0 which is also balanced. From the assumption F (x) and so F (x) x are bounded sets. Since U is absorbent, there is α 0 > 0 such that F (x) x αu, for all α with α α 0, so F (x) x α 0 U. Then F n+1 (x) F n (x) c n (α 0 )U. Since 0 c < 1, there is N N such that (c m + + c n )α 0 < 1 for all m, n N. Therefore, if m > n N we have This completes the proof. F m+1 (x) F n+1 (x) c m α 0 U + + c n α 0 U = (c m + + c n )α 0 U U. The following result is other version of Banach contraction Theorem. First we need to the next lemma. Theorem 2.2. Suppose (X, τ) is a sequentially complete locally convex space and F : X P (X) is a quasi contraction bounded valued map. If F is closed multivalued map, then F has a unique fixed point. Proof. Suppose U is any open neighborhood of 0 and x is any element in X. Make a sequence {y n } in Y by induction, where y 1 F (x) and y n+1 F (y n ) for all n N. Applying Lemma 2.1, {y n } is a Cauchy sequence. Since X is sequentially complete, so {y n } converges to an element y X. That y F (y) follows from closedness of F, y n F (y n 1 ) and y n 1 y. For the uniqueness, suppose x, y X are two distinct fixed points of F. Then there is a convex open neighborhood U of 0 such that x y / U. Since U is absorbent so there is α 0 > 0 such that x y α 0 U. Therefore, F (x) F (y) cα 0 U and so x y c n α 0 U for each n N. Since 0 c < 1, we can assume that c n α 0 < 1 for some n N. On the other hand, U is convex so c n α 0 U U. Consequently, x y U which is a contradiction. Remark 2.1. It should be noticed that closedness in Theorem 2.2 could be reduced to the following condition y n y and y n F (y n 1 ) = y F (y). As a special case of quasi contraction multivalued maps, we introduce the quasi contraction maps. Definition 2.2. Suppose (X, τ) is a topological vector space. A function f : X X is said to be quasi contraction if for all x, y X and any open neighborhood U of 0 there is a constant 0 c < 1 such that x y U implies that f(x) f(y) cu. 3 ISPACS GmbH
4 Corollary 2.2. Suppose (X, τ) is a sequentially complete locally convex space, also suppose f : X X is quasi contraction. Then f has a unique fixed point. Proof. It is a direct result of Theorem 2.2. Theorem 2.3. Let (X, τ) be a locally convex space and f : X X be a quasi contraction map. If for some x o X there exists a convergence subsequence f n i (x 0 ) to an element u X, then u is a fixed point for f. Proof. F is quasi contractive, so (f n (x 0 )) n is a Cauchy sequence from the proof of Lemma 2.1. Hence from the assumption f n (x 0 ) u. From Theorem 2.1, f is continuous, so f(u) = f(lim f n (x 0 )) = lim f n+1 (x 0 ) = u. Definition 2.3. A family {A j : j J} of sets in X has finite intersection property if each finite subfamily of it, has nonempty intersection. For a multivalued map F : X P (X), set O(F n (x)) = m n F m (x), where it is understood that F 0 (x) = {x}. The following result would improve a result of Ciric [4]. First we need to the following lemma. Lemma 2.2. [1] Suppose F : X P (X) is a multivalued map and there is x 0 X such that O(x 0 ) has finite intersection property. Then F has a fixed point if O(F 2 (x)) F (x) for all x X. Proof. It is easy to see that F (O(x 0 )) O(x 0 ). Set K = {A O(x 0 ) : A, F (A) A}. Then partially ordered K by inclusion. Since O(x 0 ) has finite intersection property, so from Zorns lemma K has minimal element, say C. Then F (C) C, but F (F (C)) F (C) implies that F (C) = C. Now, if u / F (u) for each u C, then from assumption u / O(F 2 (u)). Since u C, so F (u) F (C) = C, therefore F k (u) C for any nonnegative integer k. Now O(F 2 (u)) = C follows from minimality of C. Consequently, u O(F 2 (u)) which is a contradiction. Theorem 2.4. Suppose X is a topological vector space, O(x) has the finite intersection property for each x X and F : X P (X) is a multivalued map. Then F has a fixed point if x / F (x) implies that x / O(F m (x)) for all m 2. Proof. Assume x / F (x). We claim that x / O(F 2(x)). On the contrary there are two cases : (a) x = lim i y ni where n i 2, y ni F n i (x) (b) x F m (x) for some m 2. If (a) satisfies, then x (O(F m(x))) O(F m (x)) hence, from the assumption x F (x), which is a contradiction. Assume (b) satisfies, then x O(F m (x)) which is impossible again. Therefore, x / O(F 2 (x)) and so O(F 2 (x)) F (x). That F has a fixed point follows from Lemma ISPACS GmbH
