We also discuss some fixed point theorems in uniformly convex metric spaces. Our results can be applied to obtain the existence of a fixed point of a generalized asymptotically nonexpansive mapping in both uniformly convex hyperbolic spaces and CAT(0) spaces. Keywords: Generalized asymptotically nonexpansive mappings, uniformly convex metric spaces, uniformly convex hyperbolic spaces, CAT(0). MSC: 47H09, 47H10 [ Fulltextpdf (115 KB)] for subscribers only.
