Abstract: Given a Banach space ($ X$,$ \Vert\cdot\Vert$), we study the connection between uniformly convex functions $ f:X \to \mathbb{R}$ bounded above by $ \Vert\cdot\Vert^p$ and the existence of norms on $ X$ with moduli of convexity of power type. In particular, we show that there exists a uniformly convex function $ f:X \to \mathbb{R}$ bounded above by $ \Vert\cdot\Vert^2$ if and only if $ X$ admits an equivalent norm with modulus of convexity of power type 2.
