(related to Theorem: Continuous Real Functions on Closed Intervals are Uniformly Continuous)

- Let $[a,b]$ be a closed real interval, $\mathbb R$ be the set of real numbers and \(f:[a,b]\mapsto \mathbb R\) a continuous function.
- We have to show that \(f\) is uniformly continuous.
- The absolute value of a difference is a distance function which makes the real numbers a metric space.
- All closed real intervals are compact, so is $[a,b]$.
- Thus, $f$ is a continuous function mapping a compact domain $[a,b]$ to a metric space $\mathbb R$.
- Since all continuous functions on compact domains are uniformly continuous , so is $f$.∎
