A generalization of Rader's utility representation theorem
Rader's utility representation theorem guarantees the existence of an upper semicontinuous utility function for any upper semicontinuous total preorder on a second countable topological space. In this paper we present a generalization of Rader's theorem to not necessarily total preorders that are weakly upper semicontinuous.
