## Abstract

We give a theoretical result with respect to numerical verification of existence and local uniqueness of solutions to fixed-point equations which are supposed to have Fréchet differentiable operators. The theorem is based on Banach's fixed-point theorem and gives sufficient conditions in order that a given set of functions includes a unique solution to the fixed-point equation. The conditions are formulated to apply readily to numerical verification methods. We already derived such a theorem in [11], which is suitable to Nakao's methods on numerical verification for PDEs. The present theorem has a more general form and one may apply it to many kinds of differential equations and integral equations which can be transformed into fixed-point equations.
