In 1997, Fang proposed the concept of boundedness of $L$-fuzzy sets
in $L$-topological vector spaces. Since then, this concept has been
widely accepted and adopted in the literature. In this paper,
several characterizations of bounded $L$-fuzzy sets in
$L$-topological vector spaces are obtained and some properties of
bounded $L$-fuzzy sets are investigated.
