Fixed Point Theory and Applications 2011, 2011:75  doi:10.1186/1687-1812-2011-75

In this article, we introduce the concept of a Banach operator pair in the setting of modular function spaces. We prove some common fixed point results for such type of operators satisfying a more general condition of nonexpansiveness. We also establish a version of the well-known De Marr's theorem for an arbitrary family of symmetric Banach operator pairs in modular function spaces without Δ2-condition.
