Abstract: Let $X$ be a normed linear space. We investigate properties of vector functions $F\colon[a,b] \to X$ of bounded convexity. In particular, we prove that such functions coincide with the delta-convex mappings admitting a Lipschitz control function, and that convexity $K_a^b F$ is equal to the variation of $F'_+$ on $[a,b)$. As an application, we give a simple alternative proof of an unpublished result of the first author, containing an estimate of convexity of a composed mapping.
Keywords: bounded convexity, delta-convex mapping, bounded variation, Banach space
