Abstract: We use purely topological methods to prove the semicontinuity of the $ \mod 2$ spectrum of local isolated hypersurface singularities in $ \mathbb{C}^{n+1}$, using Seifert forms of high-dimensional non-spherical links, the Levine-Tristram signatures and the generalized Murasugi-Kawauchi inequality.
