Weakly Picard mappings

Comment.Math.Univ.Carolinae 34,4 (1993) 769-773.

Abstract:In this paper we generalize the well known converse to the contraction principle due to C. Bessaga, dropping the uniqueness of the fixed point from its hypotheses. Some properties of weakly Picard mappings are given.
