Gustave Choquet

Gustave Choquet (1 March 1915 – 14 November 2006) was a French mathematician.

His contributions include work in functional analysis and potential theory. He is known for creating the Choquet theory and the Choquet integral.

He did postgraduate work at the École Normale Supérieure Paris where his advisor was Arnaud Denjoy.He was Professor at the University of Paris (subsequently Paris VI) from 1940 to 1984 and was also Professor at the [École Polytechnique] from 1960 to 1969.His honours and awards included being a Member of the Académie des Sciences, and an Officier of the Légion_d’Honneur.

His students include Haïm Brezis, Gilles Godefroy, Nassif Ghoussoub and Michel L. Lapidus.

He was married to mathematician and mathematical physicist Yvonne Choquet-Bruhat
