The stability problems of functional equations have been originated by Ulam in 1940 (see ). One of the first assertions to be obtained is the following result, essentially due to Hyers , that gives an answer for the question of Ulam.
In 1950-1951 this result was generalized by the authors Aoki  and Bourgin [4, 5]. Unfortunately, no results appeared until 1978 when Th. M. Rassias generalized the Hyers' result to a new approximately linear mappings . Following the Rassias' result, a great number of the papers on the subject have been published concerning numerous functional equations in various directions [6–16]. For more precise descriptions of the Hyers-Ulam stability and related results, we refer the reader to the paper of Moszner . Among the results, the stability problem in a restricted domain was investigated by Skof, who proved the stability problem of the inequality (1.1) in a restricted domain . Developing this result, Jung considered the stability problems in restricted domains for the Jensen functional equation  and Jensen type functional equations . The results can be summarized as follows: let and be a real normed space and a real Banach space, respectively. For fixed , if satisfies the functional inequalities (such as that of Cauchy, Jensen and Jensen type, etc.) for all with , the inequalities hold for all . We also refer the reader to [18–26] for some interesting results on functional equations and their Hyers-Ulam stabilities in restricted conditions.
We call the functions satisfying (1.5)logarithmic functions. As a direct consequence of Theorem 1.1, we obtain the stability of the logarithmic functional equation, viewing as a multiplicative group (see also the result of Forti ).
This completes the proof.
From Theorem 2.4, using the same approach as in the proof of Theorem 2.3 we have the following.
Corollary 2.6 (see ).
Using Theorem 2.3, we have the following.
Using Theorem 2.4, we have the following.
Using Theorem 2.5, we have the following.
In this section, we consider asymptotic behaviors of the inequalities (1.4) and (2.1).
Similarly using Theorems 2.3 and 2.5, we have the following.
Using Corollaries 2.6 and 2.8 we have the following.
Using Corollaries 2.7 and 2.9 we have the following.
