A note to readers: This book is in French.

Let \(k\) be an algebraically closed field of characteristic zero and let \(R\) be the Laurent polynomial ring in two variables over \(k\). The main motivation behind this work is a class of infinite dimensional Lie algebras over \(k\), called extended affine Lie algebras (EALAs). These algebras correspond to torsors under algebraic groups over \(R\).

In this work the author classifies \(R\)-torsors under classical groups of large enough rank for outer type \(A\) and types \(B, C, D\), as well as for inner type \(A\) under stronger hypotheses. The author can thus deduce results on EALAs and also obtain a positive answer to a variant of Serre's Conjecture II for the ring \(R\): every smooth \(R\)-torsor under a semi-simple simply connected \(R\)-group of large enough rank of classical type \(B,C,D\) is trivial.
