Using the fixed point method, we prove the generalized Hyers-Ulam stability of the following additive-quadratic-cubic-quartic functional equation in Banach spaces.
The stability problem of functional equations is originated from a question of Ulam [1] concerning the stability of group homomorphisms. Hyers [2] gave a first affirmative partial answer to the question of Ulam for Banach spaces. Hyers' Theorem was generalized byAoki [3] for additive mappings and by Th. M. Rassias [4] for linear mappings by considering an unbounded Cauchy difference. The paper of Th. M. Rassias [4] has provided a lot of influence in the development of what we call generalized Hyers-Ulam stability or as Hyers-Ulam-Rassias stability of functional equations. A generalization of the Th. M. Rassias theorem was obtained by Găvruţa [5] by replacing the unbounded Cauchy difference by a general control function in the spirit of Th. M. Rassias' approach.
The functional equation
is called a quadratic functional equation. In particular, every solution of the quadratic functional equation is said to be a quadratic mapping. A generalized Hyers-Ulam stability problem for the quadratic functional equation was proved by Skof [6] for mappings , where is a normed space and is a Banach space. Cholewa [7] noticed that the theorem of Skof is still true if the relevant domain is replaced by an Abelian group. Czerwik [8] proved the generalized Hyers-Ulam stability of the quadratic functional equation. The stability problems of several functional equations have been extensively investigated by a number of authors, and there are many interesting results concerning this problem (see [9–19]).
In [20], Jun and Kim considered the following cubic functional equation
which is called a cubic functional equation, and every solution of the cubic functional equation is said to be a cubic mapping.
In [21], Lee et al. considered the following quartic functional equation
which is called a quartic functional equation and every solution of the quartic functional equation is said to be a quartic mapping. Quartic functional equations have been investigated in [22, 23].
Let be a set. A function is called a generalized metric on if satisfies

In 1996, Isac and Th. M. Rassias [26] were the first to provide applications of stability theory of functional equations for the proof of new fixed point theorems with applications. By using fixed point methods, the stability problems of several functional equations have been extensively investigated by a number of authors (see [27–32]).
This paper is organized as follows. In Section 2, we prove the generalized Hyers-Ulam stability of the additive-quadratic-cubic-quartic functional equation
