In the mathematical field of complex analysis, the Bloch space, named after André Bloch and denoted \mathcal{B} or ℬ, is the space of holomorphic functions f defined on the open unit disc D in the complex plane, such that the function


is bounded.[1] \mathcal{B} is a Banach space, with the norm defined by

 \|f\|_\mathcal{B} = |f(0)| + \sup_{z \in \mathbf{D}} (1-|z|^2) |f'(z)|.

This is referred to as the Bloch norm and the elements of the Bloch space are called Bloch functions.
