we prove the Hyers-Ulam-Rassias stability of C-algebra homomorphisms and of generalized derivations on C-algebras for the following Cauchy-Jensen functional equation 2f((x+y)/2+z)=f(x)+f(y)+2f(z), which was introduced and investigated by Baak (2006). The concept of Hyers-Ulam-Rassias stability originated from the stability theorem of Th. M. Rassias that appeared in (1978).
