But what about multidimensional abstract algebra?

From Dummit Foote, we get that we can pair up every power of X with the powers of Y that happen to be associated with that power of X, and then treat those powers of Y as coefficients of X. Do we then use the same steps that we use in our standard irreducibility criterion? (other than the division by the ideal (xy) - which can lead to degenerate cases?)
