In the present paper we obtain a common fixed point theorem by
employing the notion of g- reciprocal continuity in probabilistic metric space.
We demonstrate that g- reciprocal continuity ensures the existence of common
xed point under strict contractive conditions, which otherwise do not ensure
the existence of fixed points.


Probabilistic metric space, fixed point theorem, g- reciprocal continuity, noncompatible mappings, g- compatible.
