We extend the notion of approximately multiplicative to approximately n-multiplicative maps between locally multiplicatively convex algebras and study some properties of these maps. We prove that every approximately n-multiplicative linear functional on a functionally continuous locally multiplicatively convex algebra is continuous. We also study the relationship between approximately multiplicative linear functionals and approximately n-multiplicative linear functionals.
