Let 𝐴 be an algebra, and let 𝜃 , 𝜙 be ring automorphisms of 𝐴 . An additive mapping 𝐻 𝐴 𝐴 is called a ( 𝜃 , 𝜙 ) -derivation if 𝐻 ( 𝑥 𝑦 ) = 𝐻 ( 𝑥 ) 𝜃 ( 𝑦 ) + 𝜙 ( 𝑥 ) 𝐻 ( 𝑦 ) for all 𝑥 , 𝑦 𝐴 . Moreover, an additive mapping 𝐹 𝐴 𝐴 is said to be a generalized ( 𝜃 , 𝜙 ) -derivation if there exists a ( 𝜃 , 𝜙 ) -derivation 𝐻 𝐴 𝐴 such that 𝐹 ( 𝑥 𝑦 ) = 𝐹 ( 𝑥 ) 𝜃 ( 𝑦 ) + 𝜙 ( 𝑥 ) 𝐻 ( 𝑦 ) for all 𝑥 , 𝑦 𝐴 . In this paper, we investigate the superstability of generalized ( 𝜃 , 𝜙 ) -derivations in non-Archimedean algebras by using a version of fixed point theorem via Cauchy’s functional equation.
