Motivated by experience from computer science, Matthews (1994) introduced a nonzero self-distance called a partial metric. He also extended the Banach contraction principle to the setting of partial metric spaces. In this paper, we show that fixed point theorems on partial metric spaces (including the Matthews fixed point theorem) can be deduced from fixed point theorems on metric spaces. New fixed point theorems on metric spaces are established and analogous results on partial metric spaces are deduced.
