Functional Equations on Hypergroups

  • László Székelyhidi


This paper presents some recent results concerning functional equations on hypergroups. The aim is to give some idea for the treatment of classical functional equation problems in the hypergroup setting. The general form of additive functions, exponentials and moment functions of second order on discrete polynomial hypergroups is given. In addition, stability problems for additive and exponential functions on hypergroups are considered.
