In this volume, the author gives a definition for measured quantum groupoids. He aims to construct objects with duality including both quantum groups and groupoids. J. Kustermans and S. Vaes' works about locally compact quantum groups the author generalizes thanks to formalism introduced by M. Enock and J. M. Vallin in the case of inclusion of von Neumann algebras. From a structure of Hopf-bimodule with left and right invariant operator-valued weights, the author defines a fundamental pseudo-multiplicative unitary. To get a satisfying duality in the general case, he assumes the existence of an antipode given by its polar decomposition. This theory is illustrated with many examples, among them the inclusion of von Neumann algebras (M. Enock) and a sub family of measured quantum groupoids with easier axiomatic.
