#### Abstract

We investigate the approximation properties of a special class of twice continuously differentiable functions by solutions of the Cauchy-Euler equation.

#### 1. Introduction

Throughout this paper, let be a positive integer, let be a nondegenerate interval of , and let denote either or . We will consider the (linear) differential equation of th orderdefined on , where is an times continuously differentiable function.

For arbitrary , assume that an times continuously differentiable function satisfies the differential inequalityfor all . If for each function satisfying inequality (2) there exists a solution of the differential equation (1) such thatfor any , where depends on only and satisfies , then we say that the differential equation (1) satisfies (or has) the Hyers-Ulam stability (or the local Hyers-Ulam stability if the domain is not the whole space ). If the above statement also holds when we replace and with some appropriate and , respectively, then we say that the differential equation (1) satisfies the generalized Hyers-Ulam stability (or the Hyers-Ulam-Rassias stability). We may apply these terminologies for other differential equations. For more detailed definition of the Hyers-Ulam stability and recent papers on this subject, refer to [1–4].

Obłoza seems to be the first author who investigated the Hyers-Ulam stability of linear differential equations (see [5, 6]). Let be continuous functions with , where and are real constants. Assume that is an arbitrary real number. Obłoza proved that if a differentiable function satisfies the inequality for all and if a function satisfies for all and for some , then there exists a constant such that for all .

Thereafter, Alsina and Ger [7] proved that if a differentiable function satisfies the differential inequality , then there exists a solution of the differential equation such that for any . This result of Alsina and Ger was generalized by Takahasi et al. They proved in [8] that the Hyers-Ulam stability holds for the Banach space valued differential equation (see also [9–13]). For a recent result on the Hyers-Ulam stability for second-order linear differential equations, we refer to [14, 15].

In this paper, we consider the (inhomogeneous) Cauchy-Euler equationwhere and are real-valued constants and is a continuous function, and we investigate the approximation properties of twice continuously differentiable functions by solutions of the Cauchy-Euler equationwhich is associated with (4).

#### 2. Preliminaries

Recently, Choi and Jung [16, Corollary 4.2] proved the Hyers-Ulam stability of the Cauchy-Euler equation (4) for the case of .

Theorem 1. *Assume that the real-valued constants , are given with and is an arbitrarily given positive constant. Let be a positive real-valued constant and let , be given as If is a differentiable function and is a twice continuously differentiable function such that the inequalityholds for any , then there exists a solution of the inhomogeneous Cauchy-Euler equation (4) such that for all .*

For the case of , the Hyers-Ulam stability of the inhomogeneous Cauchy-Euler equation (4) was proved in [16, Corollary 4.4].

Theorem 2. *Assume that the real-valued constants and are given with , and is an arbitrarily given positive constant. Let be a positive real-valued constant and let . If is a differentiable function and is a twice continuously differentiable function such that the inequality holds for all , then there exists a solution of the inhomogeneous Cauchy-Euler equation (4) with such that for all .*

Finally, the Hyers-Ulam stability of the Cauchy-Euler equation (4) was also proven in [16, Theorem 4.5] for the case of .

Theorem 3. *Assume that the real-valued constants and are given with and is an arbitrarily given positive constant. Let be a given real-valued constant and let If a differentiable function and a twice continuously differentiable function satisfy inequality (7) for all , then there exists a solution of the inhomogeneous Cauchy-Euler equation (4) such that for all .*

*Remark 4. *Cîmpean and Popa [14] proved the Hyers-Ulam stability of the linear differential equations of th order with constant coefficients. Indeed, they proved a general theorem for the Hyers-Ulam stability which includes Theorems 1, 2, and 3 as its corollaries with the inequality However, Theorems 1, 2, and 3 have the advantage of more exact local approximation over the result of Cîmpean and Popa as we see in Theorems 5, 6, and 7.

#### 3. Approximation Properties

We denote by the set of all twice continuously differentiable functions for which there exists a constant such thatfor all , where and are real-valued constants.

If we define for all and , then is a vector space over . This fact implies that the set is large enough to be a vector space.

In the following theorems, we investigate approximation properties of functions of by solutions of the Cauchy-Euler equation (5).

Theorem 5. *Let be a given real number and let be given with . If , then there exists a solution of the Cauchy-Euler equation (5) such that as .*

*Proof. *We define and by the formulas given in Theorem 1; that is, and are the distinct roots of the indicial equation . Since , we have . Since , there exists a constant such that inequality (14) holds for all .

According to Theorem 1 with , there exists a solution of the Cauchy-Euler equation (5) such that for any .

We will only estimate the following limit for the case of by applying L’Hospital’s rule: which implies the validity of this theorem.

We now consider the case of and use Theorem 2 to prove the following theorem.

Theorem 6. *Let and be real numbers and let . If , then there exists a solution of the Cauchy-Euler equation (5) with such that as .*

*Proof. *Since , there exists a constant such that inequality (14) holds for all . According to Theorem 2 with , there exists a solution of the Cauchy-Euler equation (5) with such that for all .

Therefore, we estimate the limit by applying L’Hospital’s rule: which implies the validity of this theorem.

Finally, we investigate the approximation property of each function of by a solution of the differential equation (5) when .

Theorem 7. *Let be a given real number and let be given with . If , then there exists a solution of the Cauchy-Euler equation (5) such that as .*

*Proof. *Let us define Since , there exists a constant such that inequality (14) holds for all . According to Theorem 3 with , there exists a solution of the Cauchy-Euler equation (5) such that for all .

If we substitute , then we have Hence, we further apply L’Hospital’s rule to obtain which implies the validity of this theorem.
