Summary

In 2000, the mathematician Jacques Tits resigned his Chair in group theory at the Collège de France. On this occasion, the Collège and the Institut des hautes études scientifiques organized two days of lectures in his honor, on May 3 and 4, 2000. Ten well-known mathematicians testify to the contributions of Jacques Tits and explain the significance of his theory of buildings.
