Abstract: The layered compression-expansion fixed point theorem is an alternative approach to the Krasnoselskii fixed point theorem for perturbed operators. The layered compression-expansion fixed point theorem is used to verify the existence of a fixed point to an operator of the form $T = R+S$ (sum of operators) by verifying the existence of a fixed point for the operator defined by $M(r,s) = (R(r+s),S(r+s))$. This result is extended to the sum of $k$ operators. Moreover, an example illustrating this technique applied to a conformable right focal boundary value problem is provided.
Keywords: Fixed-point theorems, cross product, alternate inversion, compression-expansion, layered, sum of operators, conformable derivative, right focal problem.
