Abstract: Let be convex subsets of the Banach space *X*, with and closed and open in . If *f* is a compact mapping of into *X* such that and for some , then *f* has a fixed point in . (This extends a result of F. E. Browder published in 1959.) Also, if is a continuous flow on the Banach space *X*, are convex subsets of *X* with and compact and open in , and for some , where for all , then there exists such that for all . Minor extensions of Browder's work on ``nonejective'' and ``nonrepulsive'' fixed points are also given, with similar results for flows.
