An alternative functional equation related to the quadratic equation


Choodech Srisawat

 
ABSTRACT:     Given a rational number ? ?= 2, we establish a criterion for the existence of the general solution of an alternative quadratic functional equation of the form f (x y) + f (x y?1 ) = 2f (x) + 2f ( y) or f (x y) + f (x y?1 ) = ?f (x) + 2f ( y), where f is a mapping from an abelian group (G,?) to a uniquely divisible abelian group (H,+). We also find the general solution in the cases when G is a 6-divisible abelian group and G is a cyclic group.
