On démontre ici qu’il existe un seul simplexe métrisable S dont les points extrémaux sont denses. Ce simplexe est homogène au sens que pour tout couple de face F 1 , F 2 affinement homéomorphes, il existe un automorphisme de S qui transforme F 1 en F 2 . Tout simplexe métrisable est affinement homéomorphe à une face de S. L’ensemble des points extrémaux de S est homéomorphe à l’espace de Hilbert 2 . On caractérise les matrices qui représentent A(S).
It is proved that there is a unique metrizable simplex S whose extreme points are dense. This simplex is homogeneous in the sense that for every 2 affinely homeomorphic faces F 1 and F 2 there is an automorphism of S which maps F 1 onto F 2 . Every metrizable simplex is affinely homeomorphic to a face of S. The set of extreme points of S is homeomorphic to the Hilbert space 2 . The matrices which represent A(S) are characterized.
