    Real Analysis and Metric Spaces question

    Let (X,dx) and (Y,dy) be two metric spaces and f: X-->Y be a mapping satisfying the Lipshitz condition

    dy(f(x),f(y))<(or equal to) Ldx(x,y), L does not equal zero, for all x,y elements of X.

    is this uniform continuous and if so how would does anyone know what proof would be used well to prove it?

    i'll check it this site very frequently so any help will be appreciated. thnx.

    Just use the \varepsilon / \delta definition of the limit. If you take \varepsilon>0, you can find a \delta which works (it can be expressed with \varepsilon and L).

    thank you. the epsilon delta definition is where you put in a modulus the function - the limit? i'll look it up now coz i haven't felt that comfortable with the epsilon delta definition in the past really.

    btw why do you guys like helping so much. is it because you're like phd's and it helps you revise what you know or keep you fresh on it? or does having a good rank on here look good on your cv or what?

    Because L>0, if c>0 then so is \tfrac{c}{L}.
    In the definition let \delta=\tfrac{c}{L}.

    Now it just falls out.

    so 0< \mid\ x\ -\ c\mid\ <\ c/L\rightarrow \mid\ f(x)-L\mid <\ \epsilon

    otherwise is see limf(x) =f(c) as x approaches c but i don't see how that related to the epsilon delta definition. ie what i'd substitute in.
