Cauchy sequences and continuity versus uniform continuity

  1. Dec 14, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    This isn't really a problem but it is just something I am curious about, I found a theorem stating that you have two metric spaces and f:X --> Y is uniform continuous and (xn) is a cauchy sequence in X then f(xn) is a cauchy sequence in Y.

    2. Relevant equations

    This proposition is for uniform continuity but I am wondering if it also holds true for just regular continuity.

    Think about f(x)=1/x
