In the present paper a solution of the generalized quadratic functional equation
f(kx+ y)+f(kx+\sigma(y))=2k^{2}f(x)+2f(y),\phantom{+} x,y\in{E}$$
is given where $\sigma$ is an involution of the normed space $E$ and $k$ is a fixed positive integer. Furthermore we investigate the Hyers-Ulam-Rassias stability of the functional equation. The Hyers-Ulam stability on unbounded domains is also studied. Applications of the results for the asymptotic behavior of the generalized quadratic functional equation are provided.
