Fixed point theory for admissible pairs and maps in Frechet spaces via degree theory


New fixed point results are presented for admissible pairs and maps (admissible in the sense of Gorniewicz) defined on subsets of a Frechet space E. The proof relies on the notion of a pseudo open set, degree theory, and on viewing E as the projective limit of a sequence of Banach spaces.
