Abstract: Hyers and Ulam proved a stability result for convex functions, defined in a subset of $ {\Re ^n}$. Here we give an example showing that their result cannot be extended to those functions defined in infinite-dimensional normed spaces. Also, we give a positive result for a particular class of approximately convex functions, defined in a Banach space, whose norm satisfies the so-called convex approximation property.
