  • Abstract

For a subset K of a metric space (X,d) and x ∈ X,P_K(x)={y∈K : d(x, y)= d(x, K) ≡inf{d(x, k) : k ∈K}} is called the set of best K-approximant to x. An element g◦ ∈ K is said to be a best simultaneousapproximation of the pair y1,y2 ∈ X ifmaxd(y1, g◦), d(y2, g◦)}= inf_{g∈K} max{d(y_1, g), d(y_2, g)}. In this paper, some results on the existence of common fixed points for Banach operatorpairs in the framework of convex metric spaces have been proved. For self mappings Tand S on K, results are proved on both T- and S- invariant points for a set of best simultaneousapproximation. Some results on best K-approximant are also deduced. The resultsproved generalize and extend some results of I. Beg and M. Abbas[1], S. Chandok and T.D.Narang[2], T.D. Narang and S. Chandok [11], S.A. Sahab, M.S. Khan and S. Sessa[14], P.Vijayaraju[20] and P. Vijayaraju and M. Marudai[21].
