In this paper, we prove the following generalization of the classical Darbo fixed point principle : Let X be a Banach space and µ be a montone measure of noncompactness on X which satisfies the generalized Cantor intersection property. Let C be a nonempty bounded closed convex subset of X and T : C → C be a continuous mapping such that for any countable set Ω ⊂ C, we have µ(T(Ω)) ≤ (Ω), where k is a constant, 0 ≤ k < 1. Then T has at least one fixed point in C. The proof is based on a combined use of topological methods and partial ordering techniques and relies on the Schauder and the Knaster-Tarski fixed point principles.
