\[ \'Tx - Ty\' \le k\,\'x - y\' + r \quad (x,y \in M). \]

To state fixed-point properties of such a mapping, the self-Jung constant is used, which is defined as the supremum of the ratio \( 2\,r_{\conv S}(S)/\diam S \) over all non-empty, non-singleton and bounded subsets of some normed linear space , where \( r_{\conv S}(S) = \inf_{x\in\conv S} \sup_{y\in S} \'x - y\' \) is the self-radius of and \( \diam S \) is its diameter. If is a closed and convex subset of some finite-dimensional normed space and if is -roughly -contractive, then for all \( \e > 0 \) there exists such that

\[ \'x^* - Tx^*\' < {\t{1\over 2}}\,J_s(X)\, r + \e. \]

If , or is some two-dimensional strictly convex normed space, or is some Euclidean space, then there is satisfying \( \'x^* - Tx^*\' \le {1 \over 2}\,J_s(X)\,r \).
