The purpose of this paper is to prove some new common fixed point theorems in metric spaces for weakly compatible mapping satisfying an implicit relation under a different set of conditions, which unify and generalize most of the existing relevant fixed point theorems. While proving our results, we utilize an implicit function due to Popa et al. [Using implicit relations to prove unified fixed point theorems in metric and $2$-metric spaces. Bull. Malays. Math. Sci. Soc. (2) 33 (1) (2010), 105-120] keeping in view their unifying power. Our results improve some recent results contained in Imdad and Ali [Jungck's common fixed point theorem and (E.A) property. Acta Math. Sinica, Eng. Ser. 24(1) (2008), 87-94]. Some related results and illustrative examples to highlight the realized improvements are also furnished.
