Almost ℓ−continuity, K-almost c−continuity, Semi continuity, Super continuity, δ−continuity, Nearly continuity, Change of topology, Multifunction


This paper considers six classes of multifunctions between topological spaces, namely almost ℓ−continuous multifunctions, K-almost c−continuous multifunctions, nearly continuous multifunctions, almost nearly continuous multifunctions, super continuous multifunctions, and δ−continuous multifunctions. We relate these classes of multifunctions to others, and provide characterizations of related concepts especially in terms of appropriate changes of topology.
