Abstract
  After a brief historical excursus, we prove in a simple way some properties of Kurepa's function, the left factorial. We introduce Kurepa's hypothesis,  propose a new description, and the relation to Bezout's parameters and the Diophantine equation. A numerical analysis supports Kurepa's hypothesis ...  Read More

Abstract
  This paper aims to prove that the Lipschitz constant in the Banach contraction principle belongs to the whole interval [0, 1) for all the six classes of spaces viz. metric spaces, b-metric spaces, partial metric spaces, partial b-metric spaces, metric like space, and finally for more general spaces called ...  Read More

Abstract
  The purpose of this article is to clarify the concept of semi-interior points of positive cones by presenting some results and examples in this context.  Moreover, the new concept of E(s)-distance spaces is defined, which generalizes $E$-metric spaces. In addition, some coincidence point results ...  Read More
