La naissance de la théorie des capacités: réflexion sur une expérience personnelle. (The birth of the theory of capacities: reflection on a personal experiment). (French) Zbl 0607.01017
From the preface written by André Lichnerowicz: ”Les témoignages concernant les chemins de la découverte et émanant de grands mathématiciens sont rares et précieux... De tels témoignages, on connaît par exemple ceux célébres d’Henri Poincaré ou de Jacques Hadamard. Il nous a paru intéressant de leur ajouter ici, sur un thème de première importance, celui d’un Gustave Choquet”.
