The self-mappings satisfying implicit relations were introduced in a previous study [Popa, Fixed point theorems for implicit contractive mappings, Stud. Cerc. St. Ser. Mat. Univ. Bacau 7 (1997), 129-133]. In this study, we introduce self-operators satisfying an ordered implicit relation and hence obtain their fixed points in the cone metric space under some additional conditions. We obtain a homotopy result as an application.
