On the closedness of sets with the fixed point property for contractions
Keywords:fixed point property, complete metric spaces, Banach spaces
AbstractIt is proved by examples that there exist (connected) non-closed sets with the fixed point property for contractions in complete metric spaces. In a Banach space, a convex set with nonvoid interior having the fixed point property for contractions is necessarily closed.
