Let 3n, and 3kn be positive integers. Let A be an algebra and let X be an A-bimodule. A -linear mapping d:AX is called a generalized (n,k)-derivation if there exists a (k1)-derivation δ:AX such that d(a1a2an)=δ(a1)a2an+a1δ(a2)a3an++a1a2ak2δ(ak1)akan+a1a2ak1d(ak)ak+1an+a1a2akd(ak+1)ak+2an+a1a2ak+1d(ak+2)ak+3an++a1an1d(an) for all a1,a2,,anA. The main purpose of this paper is to prove the generalized Hyers-Ulam stability of the generalized (n,k)-derivations.
