Abstract: Let be a metrizable topological space, be the family of all metrics on X whose metric topologies are . Assume that the semigroup F of maps from X into itself, with composition as its semigroup operation, is equicontinuous under some ; then we have the following results: I. There exists such that f is nonexpansive under for each . II. If F is countable, commutative, and for each , there is such that the sequence converges to , then there exists such that f is contractive under for each . III. If there is such that (1) and , (2) there is a neighbourhood B of p such that for any choice of , and the limit depends on m only, then for each with , there exists such that each f in F is a Banach contraction under with Lipschitz constant .
