Abstract

In the world of mathematics, it is often necessary to approximate the solution to a problem by using an iterative method. One such method, not totally dependent on the initial guess, is the contraction mapping method. This paper will explore the contraction mapping principle for the real line, some extensions of it, and the principle in other contexts.
