Can we define a particular metric ( except for discrete metric ) on any given set in which continuity implies uniform continuity ?

Thanks for any help .

All compact metric spaces, since a continuous function on a compact metric space is uniformly continuous.

  • $\begingroup$ It feels as if the converse holds: If $X$ is a metric space with no isolated points and every continuous $f:X\to\mathbb RR$ is uniformly continuous, then $X$ is compact. Is that true? $\endgroup$ – Hagen von Eitzen Sep 6 '12 at 15:13
  • $\begingroup$ @HagenvonEitzen I do not know. In any case I think $X$ should be complete. $\endgroup$ – Julián Aguirre Sep 6 '12 at 18:16

In all compact metric spaces continuity and uniform continuity is equivalent.
