In this paper a systematic study of the local behavior of a multivarlable transfer function T_{1}(p) is undertaken. Starting from a Laurent expansion of the transfer function in a pole or zero, spaces generated by block-Toeplitz matrices are defined and a systematic calculus for these spaces is developed. The relationship between these objects, classical Smith-McMillan theory and coprime factorization techniques is discussed and a number of Interesting results are deduced, e.g., an algorithm to determine characteristics of the inverse system T^{-1}(p) without actually computing the inverse. Finally, the main result Is deduced: necessary and sufficient conditions for a given T_{1}(p) to be a minimal factor of T(p) . The theorem provides the mathematical conditions needed for cascade synthesis of a multivarlable system. This result shows how classical Smith-McMillan theory or coprime factorization techniques do not provide enough information on T(p) to allow a cascade synthesis. The Toeplitz calculus developed in the paper does provide the correct information needed, and appears to be the natural vehicle for multivariable cascade synthesis.
