Abstract: We consider the space $D(X,Y)$ of densely continuous forms introduced by Hammer and McCoy \cite5 and investigated also by Hola \cite6. We show some additional properties of $D(X,Y)$ and investigate the subspace $D^*(X)$ of locally bounded real-valued densely continuous forms equipped with the topology of pointwise convergence $\tau_p$. The largest part of the paper is devoted to the study of various cardinal functions for $(D^*(X),\tau_p)$, in particular: character, pseudocharacter, weight, density, cellularity, diagonal degree, $\pi$-weight, $\pi$-character, netweight etc.

Keywords: locally bounded densely continuous form, topology of pointwise convergence, cardinal function, weight, density, netweight, cellularity
