A new, simple and unified approach in the theory of contractive mappings was recently given by Samet \emph{et al.} (Nonlinear Anal. 75, 2012, 2154-2165) by using the concepts of $\alpha$-$\psi$-contractive type mappings and $\alpha$-admissible mappings in metric spaces. The purpose of this paper is to present a new class of contractive pair of mappings called generalized $\alpha$-$\psi$ contractive pair of mappings and study various fixed point theorems for such mappings in complete metric spaces. For this, we introduce a new notion of $\alpha$-admissible w.r.t $g$ mapping which in turn generalizes the concept of $g$-monotone mapping recently introduced by Ćirić et al. (Fixed Point Theory Appl. 2008(2008), Article ID 131294, 11 pages). As an application of our main results, we further establish common fixed point theorems for metric spaces endowed with a partial order as well as in respect of cyclic contractive mappings. The presented theorems extend and subsumes various known comparable results from the current literature. Some illustrative examples are provided to demonstrate the main results and to show the genuineness of our results.
