A fixed point approach to the stability of a generalized Cauchy functional equation.
(English)
[J] Banach J. Math. Anal. 2, No. 1, 105-112, electronic only (2008). ISSN 1735-8787/e

Using a fixed point method, the authors prove the Hyers-Ulam-Rassias stability of a generalized Cauchy functional equation of the form $f(\alpha x + \beta y) = \alpha f(x) + \beta f(y)$, where $\alpha$ and $\beta$ are given nonzero real numbers. Indeed, one of their main theorems states: Let $A$ be a unital $C^\ast$-algebra with unitary group $U(A)$. Assume that $X$ and $Y$ are left Banach $A$-modules. Let $\varphi : X^2 \to [0, \infty)$ be a function such that $\lim_{n \to \infty} 2^n \varphi(\frac{x}{2^n}, \frac{y}{2^n})=0$ for all $x, y \in X$ and there exists a constant $L < 1$ with $2\psi(x) \leq L\psi(2x)$ for all $x \in X$, where $\psi(x) = \varphi( \frac{x}{2\alpha}, \frac{x}{2\beta} ) + \varphi( \frac{x}{2\alpha}, 0 ) + \varphi( 0, \frac{x}{2\beta} )$. If a function $f : X \to Y$ satisfies $f(0) = 0$ and $$\| f(\alpha x + \beta ay) - \alpha f(x) - \beta af(y) \| \leq \varphi(x,y)$$ for all $x, y \in X$ and for all $a \in U(A)$, then there exists a unique $A$-linear function $T : X \to Y$ such that $\| f(x) - T(x) \| \leq \frac{1}{1-L} \psi(x)$ for all $x \in X$. \par The readers may also refer to the following literature for more information on this subject: {\it S.-M.
