Let G be a locally compact group, and take with . We prove that, for any left -multiinvariant functional on and for any weight function on , the approximate amenability of the Banach algebra implies the left -amenability of , but in general the opposite is not true. Our proof uses the notion of multinorms. We also investigate the approximate amenability of .
