In functional analysis, a branch of mathematics, a bounding point of a subset of vector space is a conceptual extension of the boundary of the set.

Definition[edit]

Let A \subset X for some vector space X. Then x \in X is a bounding point for A if it is neither an internal point for A nor its complement.[1]
