Abstract

It is difficult for me to express adequately my appreciation of the honour which has been conferred upon me by inviting me to address this audience. So I immediately start with the topic of this lecture, but before I have to stress that its genre is unusual for me. Unlike in lectures any mathematician is used to deliver, I’m not going to try to increase your store of knowledge. I’ll rather express some feelings and a certain mood. For some technical reasons the sources I could use in preparing this lecture were scarce. This explains the excessive use of my personal experience and memory for which I apologize in advance.
