10. Old paper by Gustave Choquet

Happy and prosperous new year!

I've found out that Choquet's mammooth paper is available for free at the French server Numdam: Theory of capacities.

This paper appeared in Annales de l'institut Fourier 5 (1954), 131-295. It is one of those papers divided in chapters, so I will not try to summarize its content.

It suffices to say that it contains a handful of notions and theorems which now carry Choquet's name, including the Choquet integral and the Choquet Theorem which is essential in the theory of random sets (both of which are of minor importance in the overall context of the paper -this gives you an idea of the magnitude of this work).
