Abstract: Let $T$, $X$, $Y$ be topological spaces and $F:\; T \times X \mapsto n(Y)$ be a set-valued function. We consider the Nemytskii operator generated by $F$ which associates with every set-valued function $G:\; T \mapsto n(X)$ the superposition $F(\cdot, G(\cdot)):\; T \mapsto n(Y)$. Conditions under which this superposition is lower or upper semicontinuous are presented.

Keywords: Superposition operator, set-valued functions, continuity, midconvex functions
