Document Type: Special Issue on Fixed Point Theory


Department of Mathematics, Maharshi Dayanand University, Rohtak, India


In this paper, we establish some best proximity point theorems using new proximal contractive mappings in asymmetric $G_{p}$-metric spaces. Our motive is to find an optimal approximate solution of a fixed point equation. We provide best proximity points for cyclic contractive mappings in $G_{p}$-metric spaces. As consequences of these results, we deduce fixed point results in $G_{p}$-metric spaces. We also provide examples to analyze and support our results.
