## Abstract

Let *P*(*nE,F*) be the space of the continuous *n*-homogeneous polynomials from *E* into *F* and *Hb*(*E,F*) be the space of the holomorphic mappings from *E* into *F* that are bounded in the bounded subsets of *E*, both spaces endowed with the topology *τb* of uniform convergence on the bounded subsets of *E*. The reflexivity of *P*(*nE,F*) is studied in connection with the density of the space of the finite type *n*-homogeneous polynomials in *P*(*nE,F*) and in connection with the equality [*P*(*nE,F*), *τb*] = [P(nE,F), _τ_0]' in case *E* is a reflexive countable direct sum of complex Banach spaces and *F* is a reflexive complex Banach space. The reflexivity of *Hb*(*E*) is also considered.
