A note to readers: This book is in French.

Given a fixed point for a surface homeomorphism, one can define a rotation set around this fixed point, which is a conjugacy invariant. The author initiates the study of this invariant. In particular, he explores the links with other dynamical properties such as the existence of periodic orbits, the differentiability at the fixed point, the Poincaré-Lefschetz index when the fixed point is isolated.
