Document Type: Special Issue on Fixed Point Theory


Department of Mathematics, West Bengal State University, Barasat, 24 Parganas (North), Kolkata-700126, West Bengal, India


In this paper, we introduce the notion of strictly (α,ψ,ξ)-G-contractive mappings in b-metric spaces endowed with a graph G. We establish a sufficient condition for existence and uniqueness of points of coincidence and common fixed points for such mappings. Our results extend and unify many existing results in the literature. Finally, we construct some examples to analyze and support our results.
