**Boundedness** or **bounded** may refer to:

==Linguistics==

* Boundedness (linguistics), whether a situation has a clearly defined beginning or end

==Mathematics==

* Boundedness axiom, the axiom schema of replacement

* Bounded deformation, a function whose distributional derivatives are not quite well-behaved-enough to qualify as functions of bounded variation, although the symmetric part of the derivative matrix does meet that condition
* 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*
* Bounded poset, a partially ordered set that has both a greatest and a least element
* Bounded set, a set that is finite in some sense
** Bounded function, a function or sequence whose possible values form a bounded set
:*Bounded set (topological vector space), a set in which every neighborhood of the zero vector can be inflated to include the set
:*Bounded variation, a real-valued function whose total variation is bounded
:*Bounded pointer, a pointer that is augmented with additional information that enable the storage bounds within which it may point to be deduced
