If R is a commutative 2-torsion free ring and (f, [partial derivative]) : R [right arrow] R be a generalize Jordan derivation then (f, [partial derivative]) is a generalize derivation.
Let R be a non commutative 2-torsion free semi prime ring and (f, [partial derivative]) : R [right arrow] R be a generalize Jordan derivation then (f, [partial derivative]) is a generalize where [partial derivative] is symmetric.
Orthogonal generalize derivations on semi prime rings
In this section, we gave some necessary and sufficient conditions for tow generalized derivation of type (2), to be orthogonal and also we show that the image of two orthogonal generalize derivations are different from each other except for both are is zero.
For any generalize derivation (f, [[partial derivative].
Thus (h, [partial derivative]) is a generalize derivation on S.
