Abstract: A subset of a topological space is said to be semi-open if there exists an open set such that where denotes the closure of . The class of semi-open sets of a given topological space is denoted . In the paper *Semi-open sets and semi-continuity in topological spaces*, Amer. Math. Monthly **70** (1963), 36-41, Norman Levine states in Theorem 10 that if and are two topologies for a set such that , then . In a corollary to this theorem, Levine states that if , then . An example is given which shows the above-mentioned theorem and its corollary are false. This paper shows how different topologies on a set which determine the same class of semi-open subsets can arise from functions, and points out some of the implications of two topologies being related in this manner.
