# Equivalent condition for continuity in topological space.

In metric spaces, we have this condition that a map $f$ is continuous at a point $x$ iff for each seq. $(X_n)$ converging to $x$ the seq. $(f(X_n))$ converges to $f(X)$. Is the same true in case of a topological space? i.e. is it true, A map $f$ on a topological space is continuous at a point $x$ iff for each net $(X_n)$ converging to $x$ the net $(f(X_n))$ converges to $f(x)$?

It's not true for sequences. See this post. – David Mitra Feb 1 '13 at 16:24
