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.

This paper considers one direction in which perfect rationality has been relaxed, replacing the assumption that rational agents deduce equilibrium strategies with the assumption that boundedly rational agents must learn which strategies work well.

For example, one approach relaxes the assumption of perfect rationality (Akerlof and Yellen 1985), while other approaches consider concepts of e-equilibria (Radner 1980) or probabilistic choice models of boundedly rational behavior (Rosenthal 1989).
87) To the extent that imperfect rationality within the state is a necessary condition for considering states as boundedly rational actors (unitary or non-unitary, depending on one's definitions), it is quite easily satisfied.
Experts themselves are boundedly rational and expertise is merely a specialized heuristic: a sophisticated but nonetheless simplified model for solving problems without understanding the full complexity of the real world.

Third, a detailed list of covered and excluded interventions would provide far too much information for boundedly rational consumers to take into account at the time of contracting.
Also the tendency of boundedly rational decision-makers to anchor the process of considering other options so that they devote less time and resources to exploring adaptation possibilities would explain the substantive similarity of FRLs within these clusters compared to the rational learning model that would predict a greater degree of adaptation.
