bounded

(theory)
In domain theory, a subset S of a cpo X is bounded if there exists x in X such that for all s in S, s <= x. In other words, there is some element above all of S. If every bounded subset of X has a least upper bound then X is boundedly complete.

The space [C.sub.p](X)) has a fundamental bounded resolution if and only if X is countable.
Although it can be easily seen that each metrizable locally convex space E has a fundamental bounded resolution, if the locally convex space [C.sub.c](X) has a fundamental bounded resolution, unlike what happens with [C.sub.p](X)), the space X needs not be countable and moreover [C.sub.c](X) needs not be metrizable.
Child Protection Officer (Legal) of CPB, Sumaira Advocate told reporter that CPB managed to rescue 16 children from different parts of the city who were involved in bounded child labour at hotels, workshops etc and produced them before the court.
Similar reasoning shows that [VaR.sub.q](S) is bounded below by A:= LT[VaR.sub.q]([S.sub.c]), and the bound A is sharp (attainable) if and only if the quantile function of S is taking the constant value A on [0, q).
Note that Hurlimann (2002) extends these results to the case of bounded variables.

In particular, it is surprising that [Rho]([Laplace]) grows with n when the average aspect ratio is bounded, but not if the worst-case aspect ratio is bounded.
As an alternative to optimality, bounded rationality has lurked in the academic background since its description 40 years ago by psychologist Herbert Simon of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh.
Sargent's literature survey is effective because it clearly contrasts modeling with bounded rationality and modeling with rational expectations.
