In a preprint by J. Wood, V. Lomadze, and E. Rogers, chains and boundary maps were defined for 2-D discrete behavioral systems. The corresponding homology groups were studied and tied to trajectory properties. Indeed, the homology groups encapsulated the concepts of autonomy, controllability, and signal restriction. We shall present an extension of their work to n-D discrete behavioral systems. In particular, we shall streamline the construction of the chain groups, the boundary maps between chains, and the study of the resultant homology groups. While constructing this machinery, we shall point out intrinsic flaws in their approach that make extension of their results less systematic. Finishing remarks shall be made on using the homology groups to determine system properties and potentially classify forms of controllability.
