The study delves into multiplicative contractions, exploring the existence and uniqueness of common fixed points for a weakly compatible pair of mappings. Those mappings adhere to specific multiplicative contraction conditions characterized by exponents expressed as fraction multiplicative metric spaces. It is noted that a metric can induce a multiplicative metric, and conversely, a multiplicative metric can give a rise to a metric on a nonempty set. As an application, another proof of the existence and uniqueness of the solution of a multiplicative initial problem is given.
Key words: weakly compatible pair of mappings / common fixed point / multiplicative metric space

0 Introduction
Fixed point theory provides essential tools for solving the existence of unique solutions to many problems in mathematics and applications. The Banach contraction mapping principle, one of the fundamental and most widely applied fixed point theorems, has been generalized. These expansions generally proceed along two lines: one is extending the domain of mappings, and another is considering a more general contractive condition on mappings; the fixed points or common fixed points of mappings satisfying certain contraction conditions on a specific space have received much research^{[16]}. Bashirov et al introduced the notion of multiplicative metric spaces and studied some fundamental theorems of multiplicative calculus. and Cevikel studied some topological properties of multiplicative metric spaces and proved an analogous result to the Banach contraction principle in multiplicative metric spaces. Since then, some fixedpoint and common fixedpoint results have been obtained in multiplicative metric spaces^{[913]}.
This paper shows some common fixedpoint results for two mappings satisfying specific multiplicative contraction conditions with exponents of fraction expression in multiplicative metric spaces.
