An equivalent definition of functions of the first Baire class. (English) Zbl 0970.26004
Let \(f:X \to Y\) be a mapping between complete separable metric spaces \((X,d_X)\) and \((Y,d_Y)\). Then \(f\) is of the first Baire class if and only if for each \(r > 0\) there is a function \(\eta > 0\) on \(X\) such that \(d_Y(f(x),f(y)) < r\) whenever \(d_X(x,y) < \min(\eta (x),\eta (y))\).
