### 1. Introduction

In 2007, cone metric space was introduced by Huang and Zhang ^{[4]}, they replaced set of real numbers by an ordered Banach space and proved some fixed point theorems for contractive type conditions in cone metric spaces. Subsequently, many authors for e.g. (see, ^{[1, 2, 3, 5]}) extended, improved and generalized the results of Huang and Zhang ^{[4]}. Recently, Rezapour et. al. ^{[6]} generalized the results of Huang and Zhang ^{[4]} and omitting the normality. In this paper, we proved a fixed point theorem for pair of mappings in cone metric spaces with using the normality. Our result is generalization of the results of Abbas and Jungck ^{[1]}.

### 2. Preliminaries

The following are the basic concepts on cone metric space due to Huang and Zhang ^{[4]}, which are needful in our main results.

**2.1 **^{[4]}** Definition **

Let B be a real Banach space** **and** **P be a subset of B, P is called a cone if

(i) P is closed, non-empty and P ≠ {0};

(ii) a, b are non-negative real numbers and x,y∈P ⇒ ax+by∈P;

(iii) P ∩ (-P) = {0}.

For a given cone P ⊆ B, we define a partial ordering ≤ with respect to P by x ≤ y if and only if y-x∈P, x<y stand for x ≤ y and x ≠ y, while x y will stand for y-x∈int P, where int P denotes the interior of P.

**2.2**** **^{[4]}** ****Definition **

The cone P is called normal if there is a number M >0 such that for all x, y∈M,

The least positive number satisfying the above is called the normal constant of P.

**2.3**** **^{[4]}** ****Definition **

Let X be a nonempty set of B. Suppose that the mapping d: X X→B, satisfies:

(1) 0 ≤ d(x, y) for all x, y∈X and d(x, y) = 0 if and only if x = y;

(2) d(x, y) = d(y, x) for all x, y∈X;

(3) d(x, y)d(x, z) + d(z, y) for all x, y, z∈X.

Then d is called a cone metric on X, and (X, d) is called a cone metric space.

It is clear that the concept of a cone metric space is more general than that of a metric space.

**2.4**** **^{[4]}** Example**

Let B =^{2}, P = {(x, y)∈B: x, y ≥ 0}⊂ ^{2}, X = and d: X × X→B such that d(x, y) = (│x - y│, α│x - y│), where α ≥ 0 is a constant. Then (X, d) is a cone metric space.

**2.5**** **^{[4]}** ****Definition **

Let (X, d) be a cone metric space. We say that {x_{n}} is

(i) a convergent sequence if for any c>>0, there is a natural number N such that for all n>N, d(x_{n,} x) <<c, for some fixed x in X .We write this x_{n}x (as n.

(ii) a Cauchy sequence if for every c in B with c>>0, there is a natural number N such that for all n, m>N, d(x_{n},x_{m})<<c;

The space (X, d) is called a complete cone metric space, if every Cauchy sequence is convergent ^{[4]}.

**2.6 ****Definition **

Suppose S and T are self-maps of X, if xX such that S(x) = T(x) = x , then x is called a common fixed point of S and T.

**2.7**** **^{[1]}** ****Definition**

Let f and g be self maps of a set X. If w = fx = gx for some x in X, then x is called a coincidence point of f and g, and w is called a point of coincidence of f and g.

**2.8**** **^{[1]}** ****Definition **

A pair (f, T) of self-mappings on X is said to be weakly compatible if they commute at their coincidence point (i.e., fTx = Tfx whenever fx = Tx).

**2.9**** **^{[2]}** Proposition**

Let f and g be weakly compatible self maps of a set X. If f and g have a unique point of coincidence w = fx = gx, then w is a unique common fixed point of f and g.

### 3. Fixed Point Theorem

**3.1 Theorem** Let (X, d) be a cone metric space, and the mappings f, g: X→X satisfy the contractive condition

(1) |

where, λ∈[0, 1) is a constant. If the range of g contains the range of f and g(X) is a complete subspace of X. Moreover, if f and g are weakly compatible, then f and g have a unique common fixed point.

**Proof:** Let x_{0} be an arbitrary point in X. Since f(X) ⊆ g(X), then there exists x_{1} ∈X such that f(x_{0}) = g(x_{1}). By the induction, a sequence {x_{n}} can be chosen such that fx_{n} = gx_{n+1 }(n = 0, 1, 2, 3…). Thus by (1),

Then, for n > m,

(2) |

Let 0<< c be given, choose a natural number N_{1} such that d(gx_{1}, gx_{0}) << c , for all m ≥ N_{1}.

Thus, d(gx_{n }, gx_{m}) << c, for n>m.

Therefore, {gx_{n}} is a Cauchy sequence. Since, g(X) is complete, there exist a point q in g(X) such that gx_{n }→ q as n → ∞ and there exist p∈X such that gp = q. Hence, by (1), we have

Letting, n → ∞ , we get that

Therefore, d(q_{ }, fp) = 0.

That is, q = fp.

Therefore, fp = q = gp.

Now, we show that f and g have a unique point of coincidence. For this, assume that there exist another point u in X such that fu = gu.

Thus, by (1), we have

That is, gu = gp.

Since, f and g are weakly compatible, f and g have a unique point of coincidence, then by the Proposition (2.9), we get that f and g have a unique common fixed point.

**3.4 ****Remark****.** In the above Theorem 3.1 with P is a normal cone, then we get that Theorem 2.1 of Abbas and Jungck ^{[1]}.

**3.5 ****Remark. **If we take g = I_{x} is the identity map on X and X is a complete metric space in the above Theorem 3.1, then we get that Theorem 2.3 of Rezapour et. al. ^{[6]}.

**3.6 ****Remark **If we take g = I_{x} is the identity mapping on X and X is a complete metric space with P is a normal cone in the above Theorem 3.1, then we get that Theorem1 Huang and Zhang ^{[4]}.

### 4. Conclusion

Our Theorem 3.1 in the main result is a generalization result of Abbas and Jungck ^{[1]}.
