Fixed Points Theorems and their Applications

In this talk I will give some classical fixed point theorems and present some of their applications. The talk will be of a "Chalk and Talk" style and will include some elegant classical proofs. The down side of this is that the listener will be expected to have some familiarity with metric spaces, convexity and hopefully Zorn's Lemma.
