Bounded linear operator

In functional analysis, a linear transformation L between normed vector spaces is said to be bounded, or to be a bounded linear operator, if the ratio of the norms of L(v) and v is bounded above, over all non-zero vectors v.

It is simple to prove that this is the same condition on L as continuity, for the topologies induced from the norms.
