## The stability of a cubic type functional equation with the fixed point alternative.(English)Zbl 1077.39026

The authors prove that a function $$f$$ between real vector spaces satisfies the functional equation $\begin{split} f(x+y+2z)+f(x+y-2z)+f(2x)+f(2y)\\=2[f(x+y)+2f(x+z)+2f(x-z)+f(y+z)+2f(y-z)]\end{split}\tag{$$*$$}$ if and only if $$f$$ is cubic, i.e. it satisfies $$f(2x+y)+f(2x-y)=2f(x+y)+2f(x-y)+12f(x)$$.
Using the fixed point alternative theorem, they establish the generalized Hyers-Ulam-Rassias stability of the equation $$(*)$$. The same technique for establishing stability of other equations can be found in the papers of L. Cadariu and V. Radu [JIPAM, J. Inequal. Pure Appl. Math. 4, No. 1, Paper No. 4 (2003; Zbl 1043.39010)] and of K.-H. Park and Y.-S. Jung [Commun. Korean Math. Soc. 19, No. 2, 253–266 (2004)].
