Fixed Point Theory and Applications 2013, 2013:9  doi:10.1186/1687-1812-2013-9

Published: 10 January 2013


In this paper, a Suzuki-type fixed fuzzy point result for fuzzy mappings in complete ordered metric spaces is obtained. As an application, we establish the existence of coincidence fuzzy points and common fixed fuzzy points for a hybrid pair of a single-valued self-mapping and a fuzzy mapping. An example is also provided to support the main result presented herein.
