We point out a vital error in the paper of Gaba et al. (2019), showing that a (ρ,η,µ) interpolative Kannan contraction in a complete metric space need not have a fixed point. Then we give an appropriate restriction on a (ρ,η,µ)-interpolative Kannan contraction that guarantees the existence of a fixed point and provide an equivalent formulation. Moreover, we show that this formulation can be extended to the interpolative Reich-Rus-Ćirić type contraction.
- (ρ, η, µ)-interpolative Kannan contraction
- Fixed point
- Metric space
