## Definition

Let $M_1 = \struct {A_1, d_1}$ and $M_2 = \struct {A_2, d_2}$ be metric spaces.

Let $f: A_1 \to A_2$ be a mapping from $A_1$ to $A_2$.

$f$ is **continuous from $\struct {A_1, d_1}$ to $\struct {A_2, d_2}$** if and only if it is continuous at every point $x \in A_1$.

## Also known as

A mapping which is **continuous from $\struct {A_1, d_1}$ to $\struct {A_2, d_2}$** can also be referred to as **$\tuple {d_1, d_2}$-continuous**.
