The most common form for representing digital images is the rectangular matrix where each member of the matrix is a picture element. In a small neighborhood of the image plane, there is a finite number of elements and so a topology of finite sets is needed for digital images. The concepts of digital topology provide for finite sets, but they are not perfect solutions. Problems exist in the connectivity definitions for the object and the background and in the fact that boundaries can be represented by four different sets which are either inner or outer connected and either four or eight connected.
