The concept of a generalized metric space, where the triangle
inequality has been replaced by a more general one involving four points, has
been recently introduced by Branciari. Subsequently, some classical metric
fixed point theorems have been transferred to such a space. The aim of this
note is to show that Kannan's fixed point theorem in a generalized metric space
is a consequence of the Banach contraction principle in a metric space.
- Generalized metric space
- T-orbitally complete
- Fixed point.
