On the existence of best proximity points for generalized contractions
Keywords:Fixed points, Generalized contractions, $P$-property, best proximity point.
AbstractIn this article we establish the existence of a unique best proximity point for some generalized non self contractions on a metric space in a simpler way using a geometric result. Our results generalize some recent best proximity point theorems and several fixed point theorems proved by various authors.
