Generalized quadratic mappings in several variables. (English) Zbl 1058.39024
The author defines the generalized quadratic mapping as an even solution $$f:X\to Y$$ ($$X$$ and $$Y$$ are given vector spaces) of the functional equation: ${(2 _{d-2}C_{l-1} - _{d-2}C_l - _{d-2}C_{l-2} )f\left(\sum_{j=1}^{d}x_j\right)+\sum_{\begin{matrix} \iota(j)=0,1\\ \sum_{j=1}^{d}\iota(j)=l\end{matrix}} f\left(\sum_{j=1}^{d}(-1)^{\iota(j)}x_j\right)}$
${ =( _{d-1}C_{l} + _{d-1}C_{l-1} + 2 _{d-2}C_{l-1} - _{d-2}C_l - _{d-2}C_{l-2})\sum_{j=1}^{d}f(x_j)}, x_1,\ldots,x_d\in X$ and satisfying $$f(0)=0$$. $$d$$ and $$l$$ are fixed integers such that $$1<l<d$$ and $$_kC_j$$ stands for the binomial coefficient $$\left(\begin{matrix} k\\ j\end{matrix}\right)$$. Indeed, all even solutions of (1) are quadratic, i.e., they satisfy the functional equation $f(x+y)+f(x-y)=2f(x)+2f(y).$ Next, the stability of the considered equation is proved, provided that $$X$$ is a normed space and $$Y$$ is a Banach space. Let $$Df(x_1,\ldots,x_d)$$ denotes the difference between the left and the right hand sides of (1). Assuming that $\| Df(x_1,\ldots,x_d)\| \leq\varphi(x_1,\ldots,x_d)$ where $$\varphi:X^d\to [0,\infty)$$ satisfies some additional assumptions, it is proved that $$f$$ can be suitably approximated by a unique quadratic mapping $$Q$$. In particular, the results may be applied to the case: $\| Df(x_1,\ldots,x_d)\| \leq\Theta\sum_{j=1}^{d}\| x_j\| ^p,\;\;\;x_1,\ldots,x_d\in X$ with $$p\neq 2$$.
