This textual content offers an creation to a couple of the best-known fixed-point theorems, with an emphasis on their interactions with subject matters in research. the extent of exposition raises steadily through the ebook, construction from a easy requirement of undergraduate skillability to graduate-level sophistication. Appendices offer an advent to (or refresher on) a number of the prerequisite fabric and routines are built-in into the textual content, contributing to the volume’s skill for use as a self-contained textual content. Readers will locate the presentation specifically priceless for self sustaining examine or as a complement to a graduate path in fixed-point theory.

The fabric is divided into 4 elements: the 1st introduces the Banach Contraction-Mapping precept and the Brouwer Fixed-Point Theorem, in addition to a range of fascinating purposes; the second one makes a speciality of Brouwer’s theorem and its program to John Nash’s paintings; the 3rd applies Brouwer’s theorem to areas of limitless measurement; and the fourth rests at the paintings of Markov, Kakutani, and Ryll–Nardzewski surrounding mounted issues for households of affine maps.

1 Contraction Mappings 29 Proof. , limn d(xn , p) = 0. Then the continuity of F insures that xn+1 = F(xn ) → F(p). , xn+1 → p, so (because limits in metric spaces are unique) p = F(p). If we assume further that F is a strict contraction, then there results a very strong converse. 4. Suppose F is a strict contraction on a metric space. If p is a fixed point of F then every iterate sequence converges to p. Proof. 1) above. Fix x0 ∈ S and define the iterate sequence (xn ) in the usual way: x1 = F(x0 ), .

Suppose A is a positive, stochastic, N × N matrix. 6) that A takes ΠN into itself. We’re claiming that there exists a positive number c strictly less than 1 such that Ax − Ay 1 ≤ c x−y 1 (x, y ∈ ΠN ) . 2) Let ai, j denote the matrix A’s entry in the i-th row and j-th column. Since each of these numbers is positive we may choose a positive number ε that is strictly less than all of them. Since each column of A sums to 1 we know that N ε < 1 (Proof: for j an index, 1 = ∑i ai, j > N ε ). Thus we may form the new N × N matrix B, whose (i, j)-entry is ai, j − ε .

In this way the three original vertices e1 = (1, 0, 0), e2 = (0, 1, 0), and e3 = (0, 0, 1), get the labels “1,” “2,” and “3,” respectively. For example, f (e1 ) = e1 , so the first coordinate of f (e1 ) must be strictly less than 1, and similarly for the other two vertices of Δ. Each vertex on the {1, 2} edge of ∂ Δ (the line segment joining e1 to e2 ) has third coordinate zero, so this coordinate cannot strictly decrease when that vertex is acted upon by f . Thus (since that vertex is not fixed by f ) at least one of the other coordinates must strictly decrease, so each vertex on the {1, 2}-edge gets only the labels “1” or “2,” as required by Sperner labeling.
