The theory of Fixed Points is one of the most powerful tools of modern mathematics. This book contains a clear, detailed and well-organized presentation of the major results, together with an entertaining set of historical notes and an extensive bibliography describing further developments and applications.
From the reviews: "I recommend this excellent volume on fixed point theory to anyone interested in this core subject of nonlinear analysis." --MATHEMATICAL REVIEWS
