The (lower or upper) semicontinuous topology is a topology on the real line (or a generalization thereof) such that a continuous function (from some topological space$X$) to the real line equipped with this semicontinuous topology is the same thing as a (lower or upper) semicontinuous map from $X$ to the real line.

Thus one replaces discussion of semicontinuous maps with continuous maps by using a different topological structure.

The lower semicontinuous topology on $R$ is generated by the base (of open sets) given by the sets $L_a$; the upper semicontinuous topology on $R$ is generated by the base (of open sets) given by the sets $U_a$.
