1. Introduction

The first stability problem concerning group homomorphisms was raised by Ulam [1] in 1940. He stated that if is a group and let be a metric group with metric: Given, does there exist a δ > 0 such that if a mapping satisfies the inequality for all, then there exists a homomorphism with for all?

The case of approximately additive functions was solved by D. H. Hyers [2] under the assumption that both E_{1} and E_{2} are Banach spaces. He stated that for and such that for all, then there exists a unique additive mapping such that for all. This result is called Hyers-Ulam stability.

Hyers Theorem was generalized by Th. M. Rassias [3] for linear mappings by considering an unbounded Cauchy difference. The stability problem of several functional equations has been extensively investigated by a number of authors, and there are many interesting results concerning this problem [4] - [17] .

Very recently the general solution and the stability of the quintic and sextic functional equation in quasi-b-normed spaces via fixed point method were discussed by [18] . The general solution, the stability of the septic and Octic functional equations, viz.

and

in quasi-b -normed spaces were investigated by T. Z. Xu et al. [18] .

J. M. Rassias and Mohamed Eslamian discussed the general solution of a Nonic functional equation

and proved the stability of nonic functional equation [19] in quasi-b-normed spaces by applying the fixed point method.

A fixed point approach for the stability of Decic functional equation

in quasi-b-normed spaces was investigated by K. Ravi et al. [20] .

Very recently, K. Ravi and Senthil Kumar discussed the undecic and duodecic functional equation and its stability in quasi-b-normed spaces.

In this paper, the authors are interested in finding the general solution and stability of Quattuordecic functional equation

(1)

where in quasi-b-normed spaces by using fixed point method.

The functional Equation (1) is called Quattourdecic functional equation because the function satisfies the Equation (1).

In Section 2, we have given necessary definitions. In Section 3, we discuss the general solution of the functional Equation (1). In Section 4, we investigate the stability of Quattuordecic functional Equation (1) in quasi-b-normed spaces and we provide a counter example to show that the functional Equation (1) is not stable.

2. Preliminaries

We recall some basic concepts concerning quasi-b-normed spaces introduced by J. M. Rassias and H. M. Kim [14] in 2009. Let b be a fixed real number with, and let K denote either R or C. Let X be linear space over K. A quasi-b-norm is a real valued function on X satisfying the following three conditions:

1), for all; and iff,

2) for all, and all,

3) there is a constant such that.

For all. A quasi-b -normed space is a pair, where is a quasi-b on X. The smallest possible K is called the modules of concavity of. A quasi-b-Ba- nach space is a complete quasi-b-normed space. A quasi-b-norm is called a

-norm if .

In this space a quasi-b-Banach space is called a -Banach space. We can refer to [18] for the concept of quasi-normed spaces and p-Banach spaces. Given a p -norm, the formula gives us a translation invariant metric on X. By the Aoki-Rolewicz theorem, each quasi-norm is equal to some p-norm. Since it is much easier to work with p-norms then quasi-norms, we restrict our attention mainly to p-norms.

Using fixed point theorem, Xu et al. [18] proved the following impotent lemma.

Lemma 1. Let be fixed, with, and be a function such that there exists an with for all. Let be a mapping satisfying

(2)

Then there exists a uniquely determined mapping such that

3. General Solution of Functional Equation

In this section, let X and Y be vector spaces. In the following Theorem, we investigate the general solution of the functional Equation (1).

On the other hand, one can rewrite the functional Equation (1) in the form

4. Stability of Quattuordecic Functional Equation

Throughout this section, we assume that X is a linear space, Y is a Banach space with -norm. Let K be the modulus of concavity of. We establish the following stability for the Quarttuordecic functional equation in quasi b-normed spaces. For a given mapping, we define the difference operator

Suppose on the contrary that there exists a Quattuordecic mapping and constant such that Then there exists a constant such that for all rational numbers x (see (25)). So we obtain the following inequality
