m], all the eigenvalues are bigger than 1 and bounded from above, if [lambda] = [[lambda].

The common term is monotone increasing in [xi], thus it can be bounded from above by its limit as [xi] - [varies]:

We can thus conclude that the effective conditioning of the continuous preconditioned problem is bounded from above by

k] (A) can be bounded from above by a geometric quantity involving Z, namely a multiple of the [L.

k](UA)/SS(A)] is bounded from above by a multiple of the [L.

Now (1) implies that the cumulative running time of recursive calls of procedure color in (C2) is

bounded from above by C [(n - 1).

3) bounded from above by some fixed constant on some semicircles, whose radii tend to infinity.

The infinite sum of integrals is therefore bounded from above by a constant times the finite integral

k]'s, bounded from above by the counting function no corresponding to the case of [a.

For isotropic meshes it is then bounded from above by 1 (see Section 4).

We end this section by showing that the approximation measure a is bounded from above by 1 for isotropic meshes:

Each of these two parameters is bounded from above.
