Abstract: Let $T:M \to M$ be a mapping of a metric space $(M,d)$ into itself. A mapping $T$ will be called a quasi-contraction iff $d(Tx,Ty) \leqslant q\max \{ d(x,y);d(x,Tx);d(y,Ty);d(x,Ty);d(y,Tx)\}$ for some $q < 1$ and all $x,y \in M$. In the present paper the mappings of this kind are investigated. The results presented here show that the condition of quasi-contractivity implies all conclusions of Banach’s contraction principle. Multi-valued quasi-contractions are also discussed.
