Summary: Fifteen years ago, Berkovich suggested a new viewpoint on analytic geometry over a non-archimedean complete field; the main difference between this viewpoint and the preceeding ones is that Berkovich’s spaces are locally compact and locally arcwise connected. This approach has been very fruitful; for example it had applications to vanishing cycles, or to some \(p\)-adic analogous of classical complex theories: potential, dessins d’enfants, integration along a path, dynamical systems….
