## Abstract

In digital topology, it is well-known that, in 2D and in 3D, a digital set is emphdigitally well-composed (DWC), i.e., does not contain any critical configuration, if its immersion in the Khalimsky grids *H*^{n} is emphwell-composed in the sense of Alexandrov (AWC), i.e., its boundary is a disjoint union of discrete (*n* − 1)-surfaces. We show that this is still true in *n*-D, , which is of prime importance since today 4D signals are more and more frequent.
