We discuss the superstability of generalized module left derivations and generalized module derivations on a Banach module. Let be a Banach algebra and a Banach -module, and . The mappings , and are defined and it is proved that if (resp., is dominated by then is a generalized (resp., linear) module- left derivation and is a (resp., linear) module- left derivation. It is also shown that if (resp., is dominated by then is a generalized (resp., linear) module- derivation and is a (resp., linear) module- derivation.
The study of stability problems had been formulated by Ulam in  during a talk in 1940: under what condition does there exist a homomorphism near an approximate homomorphism? In the following year 1941, Hyers in  has answered affirmatively the question of Ulam for Banach spaces, which states that if and is a map with , a normed space, , a Banach space, such that
for all in . In addition, if the mapping is continuous in for each fixed in , then the mapping is real linear. This stability phenomenon is called the Hyers-Ulam stability of the additive functional equation . A generalized version of the theorem of Hyers for approximately additive mappings was given by Aoki in  and for approximate linear mappings was presented by Rassias in  by considering the case when the left-hand side of (1.1) is controlled by a sum of powers of norms. The stability result concerning derivations between operator algebras was first obtained by Šemrl in , Badora in  gave a generalization of Bourgin's result . He also discussed the Hyers-Ulam stability and the Bourgin-type superstability of derivations in .
Singer and Wermer in  obtained a fundamental result which started investigation into the ranges of linear derivations on Banach algebras. The result, which is called the Singer-Wermer theorem, states that any continuous linear derivation on a commutative Banach algebra maps into the Jacobson radical. They also made a very insightful conjecture, namely, that the assumption of continuity is unnecessary. This was known as the Singer- Wermer conjecture and was proved in 1988 by Thomas in . The Singer-Wermer conjecture implies that any linear derivation on a commutative semisimple Banach algebra is identically zero . After then, Hatori and Wada in  proved that the zero operator is the only derivation on a commutative semisimple Banach algebra with the maximal ideal space without isolated points. Based on these facts and a private communication with Watanabe , Miura et al. proved the Hyers-Ulam-Rassias stability and Bourgin-type superstability of derivations on Banach algebras in . Various stability results on derivations and left derivations can be found in [14–20]. More results on stability and superstability of homomorphisms, special functionals, and equations can be found in [21–30].
Recently, Kang and Chang in  discussed the superstability of generalized left derivations and generalized derivations. Indeed, these superstabilities are the so-called "Hyers-Ulam superstabilities." In the present paper, we will discuss the superstability of generalized module left derivations and generalized module derivations on a Banach module.
Let and be one of the following cases: (a) a unital algebra; (b) a Banach algebra with an approximate unit; (c) a -algebra. Then module- left derivations, module- derivations, generalized module- left derivations, and generalized module- derivations on become left derivations, derivations, generalized left derivations, and generalized derivations on discussed in .
