Aggregation functions have been widely studied in literature. Nevertheless, few efforts have been dedicated to analyze those properties related with the family of operators in a global way. In this work, we analyze the stability in a family of aggregation operators The stability property for a family of aggregation operators tries to force a family to have a stable/continuous definition in the sense that the aggregation of n − 1 items should be similar to the aggregation of n items if the last item is the aggregation of the previous n − 1 items. Following this idea some definitions and results are given.
