N. Toosi University of Technology, P.O. Box 16315-1618, Tehran, Iran.Journal Article20170121In this paper, we give a fixed point theorem for $(psi,varphi)$-weakly contractive mappings in complete $b$-metric spaces. We also give a common fixed point theorem for such mappings in complete $b$-metric spaces via altering functions. The given results generalize two known results in the setting of metric spaces. Two examples are given to verify the given results.http://scma.maragheh.ac.ir/article_26524_8a6a402e1e1be61df43bb98824f5b617.pdf
