ABSTRACT: A substitution is a non-erasing morphism of the free monoid. The notion of multidimensional substitution of non-constant length acting on multidimensional words introduced in [AI01,ABS04] is proved to be sell-defined on the set of two-dimensional words related to discrete approximations of irrational planes. Such a multidimensional substitution can be associated to any usual Pisot unimodular substitution. The aim of this paper is to try to extend the domain of definition of such multidimensional substitutions. In particular, we study an example of a multidimensional substitution which acts on a stepped surface in the sense of [Jam04,JP04].
