Generalized Geraghty type fuzzy mappings on
complete metric spaces are introduced and a fixed point theorem that
generalizes some recent comparable results for fuzzy mappings in
contemporary literature is obtained. Example is provided to show the
validity of obtained results over comparable classical results for fuzzy
mappings in fixed point theory. As an application, existence of coincidence
fuzzy points and common fixed fuzzy points for hybrid pair of single valued
self mapping and a fuzzy mapping is also established.
