  • Belaid Bouikhalene and Elhoucien Eloqrachi EMAIL logo


In [15] we obtained the Hyers–Ulam stability of the functional equation


where G is a Hausdorff locally compact topological group, K is a compact subgroup of morphisms of G, μ is a K-invariant complex measure with compact support, provided that the continuous function f satisfies some Kannappan type condition. The purpose of this paper is to remove this restriction.
