• Bounded growth, occurs when the growth rate of a mathematical function is constantly increasing at a decreasing rate
• Bounded operator, a linear transformation L between normed vector spaces for which the ratio of the norm of L(v) to that of v is bounded by the same number over all non-zero vectors v
