Contributions à l'étude diophantienne des polylogarithmes et des groupes algébriques

Abstract : The first part of this thesis is dedicated to irrationality of values of polylogarithms. First, we exhibit changes of variables between multiple integrals, which allow us to generalize Rhin-Viola's groups and to connect Beukers' and Vasilyev's integrals to Sorokin's. Then, in a joint work with Rivoal, we write a very general hypergeometric series as the unique solution of a Padé approximant problem. We prove in this way that among the three numbers $\Li_s(1/2)+\frac(\log(1/2)^s)((s-1)!)$, $s \in \(2,3,4\)$, at least one is irrational. The second part is about transcendence in algebraic groups. First, we prove for some varieties a conjecture of Roy which is equivalent to the algebraic independence conjecture of logarithms of algebraic numbers. Then we prove an interpolation lemma in a commutative algebraic group $G$, which is a generalization (with multiplicities) of Masser's. When $G$ is linear, this lemma (and Fourier-Borel duality) can be stated in terms of Hopf algebras.
