 The development of this textbook is based on a generalized use of the concept of “torseur” (in French). We think that this concept is not really used in the English textbooks. We will call this concept as “torsor”. In the textbook, the English formulation was thus transposed from the French formulation.

► The author would be highly grateful with whoever would bring any element likely to be able to make progress the development, and thus comprehension, of the textbook.
