## Definition

Let [ilmath](X,d)[/ilmath] be a metric space. Let [ilmath]A\in\mathcal{P}(X)[/ilmath] be an arbitrary subset of [ilmath]X[/ilmath]. Then we say "[ilmath]A[/ilmath] is bounded in [ilmath](X,d)[/ilmath]" if:

• [ilmath]\exists C<\infty\ \forall a,b\in A[d(a,b)<C][/ilmath] - where [ilmath]C[/ilmath] is real[Note 1]

If a set is not bounded it is "unbounded" (that link redirects to this line)

## Equivalent conditions

Let [ilmath](X,d)[/ilmath] be a metric space and let [ilmath]A\in\mathcal{P}(X)[/ilmath] be an arbitrary subset of [ilmath]X[/ilmath]. Then the following are all logical equivalent to each other[Note 2]:

1. [ilmath]\exists C<\infty\ \forall a,b\in A[d(a,b)<C][/ilmath] - [ilmath]A[/ilmath] is bounded (the definition)
2. [ilmath]\forall x\in X\exists C<\infty\forall a\in A[d(a,x)<C][/ilmath]
