Abstract: The aim of this paper is to prove the stability (in the sense of Ulam) of the functional equation:

$\displaystyle f(t) = \alpha (t) + \beta (t)f(\phi (t)),$

where $ \alpha $ and $ \beta $ are given complex valued functions defined on a nonempty set $ S$ such that $ \sup \{ \vert\beta (t)\vert:t \in S\} < 1$ and $ \phi $ is a given mapping of $ S$ into itself.
