Abstract: Let *C* be a simple closed Liapounov contour in the complex plane and *A* an invertible matrix-valued function on *C* with bounded measurable entries. There is a well-known concept of factorization of the matrix function *A* relative to the Lebesgue space . The notion of local factorization of *A* relative to at a point in *C* is introduced. It is shown that *A* admits a factorization relative to if and only if *A* admits a local factorization relative to at each point in *C*. Several problems connected with local factorizations relative to are raised.
