# Compactly continuous map

(diff) ← Older revision | Latest revision (diff) | Newer revision → (diff)
A map $f$ of topological spaces $X \rightarrow Y$ with the property that the restriction of $f$ to any compact subspace of $X$ is continuous. Clearly any continuous map is compactly continuous, and the converse holds if $X$ is a locally compact space. The composite of compactly continuous maps is again compactly continuous.
