Jacques Tits held the chair of Group Theory at the Collége de France from 1973 to 2000. The present volume reproduces the summaries of his lectures, taken from the "Annuaires du Collège de France". The topics are either the work of other mathematicians, such as G. Margulis and R. Griess, or his own, e.g., on the theory of buildings; most of the results they contain have not been published elsewhere.

A publication of the Société Mathématique de France, Marseilles (SMF), distributed by the AMS in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Orders from other countries should be sent to the SMF. Members of the SMF receive a 30% discount from list.
