Fixed Point Theory and Applications (FPTA)
Publisher: Hindawi Publishing Corporation
Fixed point theorems give the conditions under which maps (single or
multivalued) have solutions. The theory itself is a beautiful mixture of
analysis (pure and applied), topology, and geometry.
Over the last 50 years or so the theory of fixed points has been revealed as
a very powerful and important tool in the study of nonlinear phenomena. In
particular fixed point techniques have been applied in such diverse fields
as Biology, Chemistry, Economics, Engineering, Game theory, and Physics.
The aim of this Journal is to report new fixed point theorems and their
applications where the essentiality of the fixed points theorems is
highlighted. This Journal will accept high quality papers containing
original research results and survey articles of exceptional merit.
Original articles are invited and should be submitted through the FPTA
manuscript tracking system at http://www.mstracking.com/fpta/.
