DESCRIPTION:In 1933\, lattice theory was a new subject\, put forth by Garr
ett Birkhoff. In contrast\, in 1940\, it was already a mature subject\, wo
rth publishing a book on. Indeed\, the first monograph\, written by the sa
me G. Birkhoff\, was the result of these 7 years of working on a lattice t
heory. In my talk\, I would like to focus on this fast development. I will
present the notion of a theory not only as an actors' category but as an
historical category. Relying on that definition\, I would like to focus on
some collaborations around the notion of lattices. In particular\, we wil
l study lattice theory as a meeting point between the works of G. Birkhoff
and two other mathematicians: John von Neumann and Marshall Stone.\nSpeak
