In this paper, we determine conditions for the existence of an epimorphism between two finite 4-valued modal algebras and state a method to obtain it. Furthermore, we obtain formulas which generalize those indicated by R. Sikorski for finite Boolean algebras [1], and by M. Abad and A. V. Figallo for finite 3-valued ukasiewicz algebras [2].
