### For continuous functions, preimage of open set is open.

Let $f$ be a continuous function from a metric space $X$ into $Y$. If $V\subset Y$ and $V$ is open, then show that $f^{-1}(V)$ is open. The proofs I've seen of the fact that open sets have open ...

### Continuous function vs Uniformly continuous function

Can you give me an example of the function in metric space which is continuous but not uniformly continuous. Definitions are almost the same for both terms. This is what I found on wiki: ''The ...

### No direct proofs of “if $f: (X, d_X) \to (Y, d_Y)$ is continuous and $X$ is compact then $f$ is uniformly continuous.”

I am studying the theorem "if $f:(X,d_X)\to (Y,d_Y)$ is continuous and $X$ is compact, then $f$ is uniformly continuous." I am not looking for a proof, but I have an argument against any attempt at a ...

### Why the continuity of a function on a metric space doesn't depend on metrics?

In the definition of the continuous function on a metric space, it seems to me that a continuous function depends on the metric of the given metric space. Could somebody explain Why the continuity of ...

### Does continuity of $f$ imply $f^{-1}(\bar A)\subset\overline{f^{-1}(A)}$?

I'm struggling to prove or disprove that the continuity of $f$ implies $f^{-1}(\bar A)\subset\overline{f^{-1}(A)}$. $f:X\to Y$ is a map between metric spaces $(X,d),(Y,d')$ while $\bar M$ denotes the ...

### Analogue of closed graph theorem

This is the analogue of closed graph theorem for compact space Suppose that $X$ and $K$ are metric spaces, that $K$ is compact, and that the graph of $f: X \rightarrow K$ is a closed subset ...

### Detail on a theorem of continuity and compactness

I have come across a proof in a book. I have trouble convincing myself on a statement on said proof. The theorem is a well-known one. I am stating the version I found on Ross's "Elementary Analysis." ...

### About the continuity of a function in the closed graph theorem proof

I'm reading Functional Analysis book of Rudin, and in the proof of the closed graph theorem, there's one point that I don't understand. Can someone please explain it to me? I really appreciate this. ...

### if a map and its inverse are continuous, does that imply injection?

I've proved that a mapping of one topology to another and its inverse are both continuous. so since f and f inverse are continuous, can I therefore say that they're injective?

### Prove B is a closed subset of X given the f and g are continous?

Let $(X;\rho)$, $(Y;\sigma)$ be metric spaces. Let $f,g : X \to Y$ be continuous. Prove that the set $B=\{x\in X: f(x)=g(x)\}$ is a closed subset of $X$

### Prove that the identity map $(C[0,1],d_1) \rightarrow (C[0,1],d_\infty)$ is not continuous

$$d_\infty = \max|x_i - y_i|$$ $$d_1 = \sum_{i=1}^n |x_i - y_i|$$ The first part of this question was to prove that the identity map $$(C[0,1],d_\infty) \rightarrow (C[0,1],d_1)$$ is continuous, ...

### $\sup_n \inf_{y \in X} (F(y) + n d(x,y))= F(x)$

Let $(X,d)$ be a metric space and $F : X \rightarrow [0, +\infty)$ a lower semicontinuous function. Then $$\sup_n \inf_{y \in X} (F(y) + n d(x,y))= F(x).$$ Is this true? Intuitively it works since ...

### Proving that half an isometry is a homeomorphism

Let $(K,d)$ be a compact metric space and $f:K\rightarrow K$ such that $$\forall x \in K, \forall y \in K, d(f(x),f(y)) \geq d(x,y)$$ Prove that $f$ is a homeomorphism. What I managed to prove is ...
### Isn't the result true for any $A\subset X?$
There's a problem in my text which reads as: Let $f: (X, d)\to(Y, d)$ be continuous. Let $A\subset X$ be open. Show that the restriction $f|_A$ of $f$ to $A$ is a continuous function from the metric ...
