For all t, f_t(x) = f(x,t) is uniformly continuous.

Is this correct?

A collection of funtions { fj:X -> Y | j in J } is equicontinous
when for open V, there's some open U with for all j in J, x,y in X,
(x,y in U implies fj(x), fj(y) in V.

For metric spaces.

A collection of funtions { fj:X -> Y | j in J } is equicontinous
when for all r > 0 there's some s > 0 with for all j in J, x,y in X,
(d(x,y) < s implies d(fj(x),fj(y) < r)
