Fixed Point Theory and Applications 2012, 2012:31  doi:10.1186/1687-1812-2012-31

Published: 29 February 2012


Coupled fixed point results for nonlinear contraction mappings having a mixed monotone property in a partially ordered G-metric space due to Choudhury and Maity are extended and unified. We also provide example to validate the main results in this article.
