A solution to the problem of a closed-form representation for the inverse of a matrix polynomial about a unit root is provided by resorting to a Laurent expansion in matrix notation, whose principal-part coefficients turn out to depend on the non-null derivatives of the adjoint and determinant of the matrix polynomial at the root. Some basic relationships between principal-part structure and rank properties of algebraic function of the matrix polynomial at the unit root as well as informative closed-form expressions for the leading coefficient matrices of the matrix-polynomial inverse are established.
