We give a mathematical formulation of a method for obtaining bounds on effective parameters developed by D. Bergman and G. W. Milton. This method, in contrast to others used before, does not rely on a variational principle, but exploits the properties of the effective parameter as an analytic function of the component parameters. The method is at present restricted to two-component media.
