Abstract: Let be an algebra. A mapping is called a -local automorphism if for every there is an automorphism , depending on and , such that and (no linearity, surjectivity or continuity of is assumed). Let be an infinite-dimensional separable Hilbert space, and let be the algebra of all linear bounded operators on . Then every -local automorphism is an automorphism. An analogous result is obtained for derivations.
