  bounded 
 
    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}.
