**MSC:**- 47H10 Fixed-point theorems, See also {54H25, 55M20, 58C30}
- 54H25 Fixed-point and coincidence theorems, See also {47H10,

in which a mapping takes each point of a metric space into a

closed (resp.\ closed and bounded) subset of the same

(cf.~\cite{pami3, pami4, pami5, pami7, pami10, pami11}). Hybrid

fixed point theory for nonlinear mappings is relatively a recent

development within the ambit of fixed point theory of point to set

mappings (multivalued mappings) with a wide range of applications

(see, for instance, \cite{pami2, pami8, pami12, pami13, pami14,

pami15, pami16}). Recently, in an attempt to improve /generalize

certain results of Naidu, Sastry and Prasad \cite{pami11} and

Kaneko \cite{pami4} and others, Chang \cite{pami1} obtained some

fixed point theorems for a hybrid of multivalued and singlevalued

mappings.
