Fixed point theorems in a new type of modular metric spaces
Fixed Point Theory and Applications volume 2018, Article number: 25 (2018)
Abstract
In this paper, considering both a modular metric space and a generalized metric space in the sense of Jleli and Samet (Fixed Point Theory Appl. 2015:61, 2015), we introduce a new concept of generalized modular metric space. Then we present some examples showing that the generalized modular metric space includes some kind of metric structures. Finally, we provide some fixed point results for both contraction and quasicontraction type mappings on generalized modular metric spaces.
1 Introduction
In 1990, the fixed point theory in modular function spaces was initiated by Khamsi, Kozlowski, and Reich [10]. Modular function spaces are a special case of the theory of modular vector spaces introduced by Nakano [13]. Modular metric spaces were introduced in [2, 3]. Fixed point theory in modular metric spaces was studied by Abdou and Khamsi [1]. Their approach was fundamentally different from the one studied in [2, 3]. In this paper, we follow the same approach as the one used in [1].
Generalizations of standard metric spaces are interesting because they allow for some deep understanding of the classical results obtained in metric spaces. One has always to be careful when coming up with a new generalization. For example, if we relax the triangle inequality, some of the classical known facts in metric spaces may become impossible to obtain. This is the case with the generalized metric distance introduced by Jleli and Samet in [6]. The authors showed that this generalization encompasses metric spaces, bmetric spaces, dislocated metric spaces, and modular vector spaces.
In this paper, considering both a modular metric space and a generalized metric space in the sense of Jleli and Samet [6], we introduce a new concept of generalized modular metric space. Then we proceed to proving the Banach contraction principle (BCP) and Ćirić’s fixed point theorem for quasicontraction mappings in this new space. To prove Ćirić’s fixed point theorem in this new space, we take the contraction constant \(k<\frac{1}{C}\), where C is as given in Definition 1.1. For readers interested in metric fixed point theory, we recommend the book by Khamsi and Kirk [8], and for more details, see [5, 7, 9, 11, 12].
First, we give the definition of generalized modular metric spaces.
Definition 1.1
Let X be an abstract set. A function \(D:(0,\infty)\times X \times X \to[0,\infty]\) is said to be a regular generalized modular metric (GMM) on X if it satisfies the following three axioms:
 (\(\mathit{GMM}_{1}\)):

If \(D_{\lambda}(x,y) = 0\) for some \(\lambda >0\), then \(x=y\) for all \(x,y \in X\);
 (\(\mathit{GMM}_{2}\)):

\(D_{\lambda}(x,y)=D_{\lambda}(y,x)\) for all \(\lambda>0\) and \(x,y \in X\);
 (\(\mathit{GMM}_{3}\)):

There exists \(C > 0 \) such that, if \((x, y) \in X \times X\), \(\{x_{n}\} \subset X\) with \(\lim_{n \to\infty} D_{\lambda}(x_{n},x)=0\) for some \(\lambda>0\), then
$$D_{\lambda}(x, y) \leq C \limsup_{n \to\infty} D_{\lambda}(x_{n}, y). $$
The pair \((X,D) \) is said to be a generalized modular metric space (GMMS).
It is easy to check that if there exist \(x, y \in X\) such that there exists \(\{x_{n}\} \subset X\) with \(\lim_{n \to\infty} D_{\lambda}(x_{n},x)=0\) for some \(\lambda>0\), and \(D_{\lambda}(x, y) < \infty\), then we must have \(C \geq1\). In fact, throughout this work, we assume \(C \geq1\).
Let D be a GMM on X. Fix \(x_{0} \in X\). The sets
are called generalized modular sets. Next, we give some examples that inspired our definition of a GMMS.
Example 1.1
(Modular vector spaces \((\mathit{MVS})\) [13])
Let X be a linear vector space over the field \(\mathbb {R}\). A function \(\rho: X \to[0,\infty] \) is called regular modular if the following hold:

(1)
\(\rho(x)=0\) if and only if \(x=0\),

(2)
\(\rho(\alpha x) = \rho(x)\) if \(\alpha = 1\),

(3)
\(\rho(\alpha x+(1 \alpha)y) \leq\rho(x)+\rho(y)\) for any \(\alpha\in[0,1]\),
for any \(x,y \in X\). Let ρ be regular modular defined on a vector space X. The set
is called a MVS. Let \(\{x_{n}\}_{n \in \mathbb {N}}\) be a sequence in \(X_{\rho}\) and \(x \in X_{\rho}\). If \({\lim_{n \to\infty}\rho (x_{n}x)=0}\), then \(\{x_{n}\}_{n \in \mathbb {N}}\) is said to ρconverge to x. ρ is said to satisfy the \(\Delta_{2}\)condition if there exists \(K \neq0\) such that
for any \(x \in X_{\rho}\). Moreover, ρ is said to satisfy the Fatou property(FP) if
whenever \(\{x_{n}\}\) ρconverges to x for any \(x, y, x_{n} \in X_{\rho}\). Next, we show that a MVS may be embedded with a GMM structure. Indeed, let \((X,\rho)\) be a MVS. Define \(D: (0, +\infty) \times X \times X \to[0,+\infty]\) by
Then the following hold:

(i)
If \(D_{\lambda}(x,y)=0\) for some \(\lambda> 0\) and any \(x, y \in X\), then \(x=y\);

(ii)
\(D_{\lambda}(x,y)=D_{\lambda}(y,x)\) for any \(\lambda> 0\) and \(x, y \in X\);

(iii)
If ρ satisfies the FP, then for any \(\lambda>0\) and \(\{x_{n}\}\) such that \(\{x_{n}/ \lambda\}\) ρconverges to \(x/ \lambda \), we have
$$\rho \biggl(\frac{xy}{\lambda} \biggr) \leq\liminf_{n \to \infty} \rho \biggl(\frac{x_{n}y}{\lambda} \biggr) \leq\limsup_{n \to\infty} \rho \biggl( \frac{x_{n}y}{\lambda} \biggr), $$which implies
$$D_{\lambda}(x,y) \leq\liminf_{n \to\infty}D_{\lambda}(x_{n},y) \leq\limsup_{n \to\infty}D_{\lambda}(x_{n},y) $$for any \(x, y,x_{n} \in X_{\rho}\).
Therefore, \((X, D)\) satisfies all the properties of Definition 1.1 as claimed. Note that the constant C which appears in the property \((\mathit{GMM}_{3})\) is equal to 1 provided the FP is satisfied by ρ.
In the next example, we discuss the case of modular metric spaces.
Example 1.2
(Modular metric spaces (MMS) [2, 3])
Let X be an abstract set. For a function \(\omega: (0,+\infty) \times X \times X \to[0,\infty]\), we will write
The function \(\omega:(0, \infty) \times X \times X \rightarrow[0, \infty]\) is said to be a regular modular metric(MM) on X if it satisfies the following axioms:

(i)
\(x=y\) if and only if \(\omega_{ \lambda}(x,y)=0\) for some \(\lambda>0\);

(ii)
\(\omega_{ \lambda}(x,y)= \omega_{ \lambda}(y,x) \) for all \(\lambda>0\) and \(x,y \in M\);

(iii)
\(\omega_{ \lambda+ \mu}(x,y) \leq\omega_{ \lambda}(x,z)+ \omega_{\mu}(z,y)\) for all \(\lambda, \mu>0\) and \(x,y,z \in X\).
Let ω be regular modular on X. Fix \(x_{0} \in X\). The two sets
are called modular spaces (around arbitrarily chosen \(x_{0}\)). It is clear that \(X_{\omega}\subset X_{\omega}^{\ast}\), but this inclusion may be proper in general. Let \(X_{\omega}\) be a MMS. If \(\lim_{n \rightarrow\infty} \omega_{\lambda}(x_{n},x) = 0\) for some \(\lambda>0\), then we may not have \(\lim_{n \rightarrow \infty} \omega_{\lambda}(x_{n},x) = 0\) for all \(\lambda>0\). Therefore, as it is done in MVS, we will say that ω satisfies the \(\Delta _{2}\)condition if this is the case, i.e., \(\lim_{n \rightarrow\infty} \omega_{\lambda}(x_{n},x) = 0\) for some \(\lambda>0\) implies \(\lim_{n \rightarrow\infty} \omega_{\lambda }(x_{n},x) = 0\) for all \(\lambda>0\). We will say that the sequence \(\{ x_{n}\}_{n\in\mathbb{N}}\) in \(X_{\omega}\) is ωconvergent to \(x\in X_{\omega}\) if \(\lim_{n \to\infty} \omega_{\lambda}(x_{n},x) = 0\) for some \(\lambda> 0\). The modular function ω is said to satisfy the FP if \(\{x_{n}\}\) is such that \(\lim_{n \rightarrow\infty} \omega_{\lambda }(x_{n},x) = 0\) for some \(\lambda> 0\), we have
for any \(y \in X_{\omega}\). Let \(X_{\omega}\) be a MMS, where ω is a regular modular. Define \(D: (0, +\infty) \times X_{\omega}\times X_{\omega}\to[0,+\infty]\) by
Then the following hold:

(i)
If \(D_{\lambda}(x,y)=0\) for some \(\lambda> 0\) and \(x, y \in X_{\omega}\), then \(x=y\);

(ii)
\(D_{\lambda}(x,y)=D_{\lambda}(y,x)\) for any \(\lambda> 0\) and \(x, y \in X_{\omega}\);

(iii)
If ω satisfies the FP, then for any \(x \in X_{\omega}\) and \(\{x_{n}\} \subset X_{\omega}\) such that \(\lim_{n \rightarrow\infty} D_{\lambda}(x_{n},x) = 0\) for some \(\lambda>0\), we have
$$\omega_{\lambda}(x,y) \leq\liminf_{n \to\infty} \omega_{\lambda}(x_{n},y) \leq\limsup_{n \to\infty} \omega_{\lambda}(x_{n},y) $$for any \(y \in X_{\omega}\), which implies
$$D_{\lambda}(x,y) \leq\liminf_{n \to\infty}D_{\lambda}(x_{n},y) \leq\limsup_{n \to\infty}D_{\lambda}(x_{n},y). $$
In other words, \((X_{\omega}, D)\) is a GMMS.
Example 1.3
(Generalized metric spaces (GMS) [6])
Throughout the paper X is an abstract set. For a function \(\mathcal{D} : X \times X \to[0,\infty]\) and \(x \in X\), we will introduce the set
According to [6], the function \(\mathcal{D} : X \times X \to[0,\infty]\) is said to define a generalized metric (GM) on X if it satisfies the following axioms:
 (\(\mathcal{D}_{1}\)):

For every \((x,y) \in X \times X\), we have \(\mathcal{D}(x,y)=0 \Rightarrow x=y\);
 (\(\mathcal{D}_{2}\)):

For every \((x,y) \in X \times X\), we have \(\mathcal{D}(x,y)=\mathcal{D}(y,x)\),
 \((\mathcal{D}_{3})\) :

There exists \(C > 0 \) such that, if \((x, y) \in X \times X, \{x_{n}\} \in\mathcal{C}(\mathcal{D},X,x)\), we have
$$\mathcal{D}(x,y)\leq C \limsup_{n \to\infty} \mathcal{D}(x_{n},y). $$
The pair \((X,\mathcal{D})\) is then called a GMS. Let us show that such a structure may be seen as a GMMS. Indeed, let \((X,\mathcal{D})\) be a GMS. Define \(D: (0, +\infty) \times X \times X \to[0,+\infty]\) by
Clearly, if \(\{x_{n}\} \in\mathcal{C}(\mathcal{D},X,x)\) for some \(x \in X\), then we have
for any \(\lambda>0\). Then the following hold:

(i)
If \(D_{\lambda}(x,y)=0\) for some \(\lambda> 0\) and \(x, y \in X\), then \(x=y\);

(ii)
\(D_{\lambda}(x,y)=D_{\lambda}(y,x)\) for any \(\lambda> 0\) and \(x, y \in X\);

(iii)
There exists \(C > 0 \) such that, if \((x, y) \in X \times X, \{x_{n}\} \in\mathcal{C}(D_{\lambda},X,x)\) for some \(\lambda>0\), we have
$$D_{\lambda}(x,y)\leq C\limsup_{n \to\infty} D_{\lambda}(x_{n},y). $$
These properties show that \((X,D)\) is a GMMS.
2 Fixed point theorems (FPT) in GMMS
The following definition is useful to set new fixed point theory on GMMS.
Definition 2.1
Let \((X_{D}, D)\) be a GMMS.

(1)
The sequence \(\{x_{n}\}_{n\in \mathbb {N}}\) in \(X_{D}\) is said to be Dconvergent to \(x\in X_{D}\) if and only if \(D_{\lambda }(x_{n},x)\rightarrow0\), as \(n\rightarrow\infty\), for some \(\lambda>0\).

(2)
The sequence \(\{x_{n}\}_{n\in \mathbb {N}}\) in \(X_{D}\) is said to be DCauchy if \(D_{\lambda}(x_{m},x_{n})\rightarrow0\), as \(m,n\rightarrow \infty\), for some \(\lambda>0\).

(3)
A subset C of \(X_{D}\) is said to be Dclosed if for any \(\{x_{n}\}\) from C which Dconverges to x, \(x \in C\).

(4)
A subset C of \(X_{D}\) is said to be Dcomplete if for any \(\{x_{n}\}\) DCauchy sequence in C such that \(\lim_{n,m \to \infty} D_{\lambda}(x_{n},x_{m})=0\) for some λ, there exists a point \(x \in C\) such that \(\lim_{n,m \to\infty} D_{\lambda}(x_{n},x)=0\).

(5)
A subset C of \(X_{D}\) is said to be Dbounded if, for some \(\lambda>0\), we have
$$\delta_{D, \lambda}(C)= \sup\bigl\{ D_{\lambda}(x,y);x,y\in C\bigr\} < \infty. $$
In general, if \(\lim_{n \rightarrow\infty} D_{\lambda}(x_{n},x) = 0\) for some \(\lambda>0\), then we may not have \(\lim_{n \rightarrow\infty} D_{\lambda}(x_{n},x) = 0\) for all \(\lambda>0\). Therefore, as it is done in modular function spaces, we will say that D satisfies \(\Delta_{2}\)condition if and only if \(\lim_{n \rightarrow\infty} D_{\lambda}(x_{n},x) = 0\) for some \(\lambda>0\) implies \(\lim_{n \rightarrow\infty} D_{\lambda}(x_{n},x) = 0\) for all \(\lambda>0\).
Another question that comes into this setting is the concept of Dlimit and its uniqueness.
Proposition 2.1
Let \((X_{D},D)\) be a GMMS. Let \(\{x_{n}\}\) be a sequence in \(X_{D}\). Let \((x,y)\in X_{D} \times X_{D}\) such that \(D_{\lambda}(x_{n},x)\rightarrow0\) and \(D_{\lambda }(x_{n},y)\rightarrow0\) as \(n \to\infty\) for some \(\lambda> 0\). Then \(x = y\).
Proof
Using the property (\(\mathit{GMM}_{3}\)), we have
which implies from the property (\(\mathit{GMM}_{1}\)) that \(x = y\). □
3 The main results
3.1 The Banach contraction principle (BCP) in GMMS
Now, we show an extension of the BCP to the setting of GMMS presented formerly. From now on, we mean 1 instead of λ for the same reason Abdou and Khmasi used in their work [1].
Definition 3.1
Let \((X_{D},D) \) be a GMMS and \(f:X_{D} \to X_{D}\) be a mapping. f is called a Dcontraction mapping if there exists \(k \in (0,1)\) such that
x is said to be a fixed point of f if \(f(x) = x\).
Proposition 3.1
Let \((X_{D},D) \) be a GMMS. Let \(f:X_{D} \to X_{D}\) be a Dcontraction mapping. If \(\omega_{1}\) and \(\omega_{2}\) are fixed points of f and \(D_{1}(\omega_{1},\omega_{2}) < \infty\), then we have \(\omega_{1} = \omega_{2}\).
Proof
Let \(\omega_{1},\omega_{2} \in X_{D}\) be two fixed points of f such that \(D_{1}(\omega_{1},\omega_{2})<\infty\). As f is a Dcontraction, there exists \(k \in(0,1)\) such that
Since \(D_{1}(\omega_{1},\omega_{2})<\infty\), we conclude that \(D_{1}(\omega _{1},\omega_{2})=0\), which implies \(\omega_{1} = \omega_{2}\) from \((\mathit{GMM}_{1})\). □
Let \((X_{D},D) \) be a GMMS and \(f:X_{D} \to X_{D}\) be a mapping. For any \(x \in M\), define the orbit of x by
Set \(\delta_{D,\lambda}(x) = \sup\{D_{\lambda}(f^{n}(x),f^{t}(x)); n,t \in \mathbb {N}\}\), where \(\lambda>0\). The following result may be seen as an extension of the BCP in GMMS.
Theorem 3.1
Let \((X_{D},D)\) be a GMMS. Assume that \(X_{D}\) is Dcomplete. Let \(f :X_{D} \to X_{D}\) be a Dcontraction mapping. Assume that \(\delta_{D,1}(x_{0})\) is finite for some \(x_{0} \in X_{D}\). Then \(\{ f^{n}(x_{0})\}\) Dconverges to a fixed point ω of f. Moreover, if \(D_{1}(x,\omega)<\infty\) for \(x \in X_{D}\), then \(\{f^{n}(x)\}\) Dconverges to ω.
Proof
Let \(x_{0} \in X_{D}\) be such that \(\delta_{D,1}(x_{0})< \infty\). Then
for any \(n, p \in\mathbb{N}\). Since \(k<1\), \(\{f^{n}(x_{0})\}\) is DCauchy. As \(X_{D}\) is Dcomplete, then there exists \(\omega\in X_{D}\) such that \(\lim_{n \to\infty} D_{1}(f^{n}(x_{0}),\omega) = 0\). Since
we have \(\lim_{n \to\infty} D_{1}(f^{n}(x_{0}),f(\omega)) = 0\). Proposition 2.1 implies that \(f(\omega) = \omega\), i.e., ω is a fixed point of f. Let \(x \in X_{D} \) be such that \(D_{1}(x,\omega) < \infty\). Then
for any \(n \geq1\). Since \(k<1\), we get \(\lim_{n \to\infty} D_{1}(f^{n} (x), \omega) = 0\), i.e., \(\{f^{n}(x)\}\) Dconverges to ω. □
If \(D_{1}(x,y)<\infty\) for any \(x,y \in X_{D}\), then f has at most one fixed point. Moreover, if \(X_{D}\) is Dcomplete and \(\delta _{D,1}(x)<\infty\) for any \(x \in X_{D}\), then all orbits Dconverge to the unique fixed point of f. In metric spaces, \(d(x,y)\) is always finite. Because of this reason, any contraction will have at most one fixed point. Moreover, the orbits of the contraction are all bounded. Indeed, let \(f:M \to M\) be a contraction, where M is a metric space endowed with a metric distance d. We have
for any \(n \in\mathbb{N}\) and \(x \in M\), which implies by using the triangle inequality
since \(k < 1\). Hence
for any \(x \in M\).
Next, we investigate the extension of Ćirić’s FPT [4] for quasicontraction type mappings in GMMS and give a correct version of Theorem 4.3 in [6] since its proof is wrong [7].
3.2 Ćirić quasicontraction in generalized modular metric spaces
First, let us introduce the concept of quasicontraction mappings in the setting of GMMS.
Definition 3.2
Let \((X_{D},D) \) be a GMMS. The mapping \(f :X_{D} \to X_{D}\) is said to be a Dquasicontraction if there exists \(k \in(0,1)\) such that
for any \((x,y) \in X_{D} \times X_{D}\).
Proposition 3.2
Let \((X_{D},D) \) be a GMMS. Let \(f:X_{D} \to X_{D}\) be a Dquasicontraction mapping. If ω is a fixed point of f such that \(D_{1}(\omega, \omega) < \infty\), then we have \(D_{1}(\omega, \omega) = 0\). Moreover, if \(\omega_{1}\) and \(\omega_{2}\) are two fixed points of f such that \(D_{1}(\omega_{1},\omega_{2}) < \infty, D_{1}(\omega _{1},\omega_{1}) < \infty\), and \(D_{1}(\omega_{2},\omega_{2}) < \infty\), then we have \(\omega_{1} = \omega_{2}\).
Proof
Let ω be a fixed point of f, then
Since \(k<1\) and \(D_{1}(\omega,\omega)<\infty\), then \(D_{1}(\omega,\omega )=0\). Let \(\omega_{1},\omega_{2} \in X_{D}\) be two fixed points of f such that \(D_{1}(\omega_{1},\omega_{2})<\infty, D_{1}(\omega_{1},\omega_{1})<\infty\), and \(D_{1}(\omega_{2},\omega_{2})<\infty\). Since f is a Dquasicontraction, there exists \(k<1\) such that
Since \(D_{1}(\omega_{1},\omega_{1}) < \infty\) and \(D_{1}(\omega_{2},\omega_{2}) < \infty\), then \(D_{1}(\omega_{1},\omega_{1})=D_{1}(\omega_{2},\omega_{2})=0\). Now we have
Since \(D_{1}(\omega_{1},\omega_{2})<\infty\) and \(k<1\), then \(D_{1}(\omega _{1},\omega_{2})=0\). □
The following result may be seen as an extension of Ćirić’s FPT [4] for quasicontraction type mappings in GMMS.
Theorem 3.2
Let \((X_{D},D)\) be a Dcomplete GMMS. Let \(f :X_{D} \to X_{D}\) be a Dquasicontraction mapping. Assume that \(k<\frac{1}{C}\), where C is the constant from \((\mathit{GMM}_{3})\), and there exists \(x_{0} \in X_{D}\) such that \(\delta_{D,1}(x_{0})<\infty\). Then \(\{f^{n}(x_{0})\}\) Dconverges to some \(\omega\in X_{D}\). If \(D_{1}(x_{0},f(\omega))< \infty\) and \(D_{1}(\omega,f(\omega))<\infty\), then ω is a fixed point of f.
Proof
Let f be a Dquasicontraction, then there exists \(k \in (0,1)\) such that, for all \(p,r,n \in \mathbb {N}\) and \(x \in X_{D}\), we have
Hence \(\delta_{D,1}(f(x)) \leq k \delta_{D,1}(x)\) for any \(x \in X_{D}\). Consequently, we have
for any \(n\geq1\). Using the above inequality, we get
for every \(n,m \in \mathbb {N}\). Since \(\delta_{D,1}(x_{0})<\infty\) and \(k < 1/C \leq1\), we have
which implies that \(\{f^{n}(x_{0})\}\) is a DCauchy sequence. Since \(X_{D}\) is Dcomplete, there exists \(\omega\in X_{D}\) such that \(\lim_{n \to \infty} D_{1}(f^{n}(x_{0}),\omega)=0\), i.e., \(\{f^{n}(x_{0})\}\) Dconverges to ω. Next, we assume \(D_{1} (x_{0},f(\omega))<\infty\) and \(D_{1}(\omega ,f(\omega))<\infty\). Using inequality (2) and the property \((\mathit{GMM}_{3})\), we get
for every \(n,m \in \mathbb {N}\).
Hence,
and, using (1), (2), (3), and \(k < 1/C \leq1\), we have
Progressively, by induction, we can get
for every \(n \geq1\). Moreover, we have
when \(D_{1}(x_{0},f(\omega))<\infty\) and \(\delta_{D,1}(x_{0})<\infty\). Again the property \((\mathit{GMM}_{3})\) implies
Since \(k C<1\) and \(D_{1}(\omega,f(\omega))<\infty\), then \(D_{1}(\omega ,f(\omega))=0\), i.e., \(f(\omega)=\omega\). □
