The classical Brouwer’s fixed point theorem for single-valued mappings and its extension to multi-valued mappings due to Kakutani are widely used to prove the existence of an equilibrium in several contexts. Among the many other existing fixed point theorems, one of the oldest, simplest but nevertheless most useful ones is Banach’s principle for contractive mappings from a complete metric space into itself. A metric space is a mathematical structure consisting of a set X and a function d assigning a non-negative real number d(x, y) to each ordered pair x, y of elements in X.
