This article shows that discrete or topological Kac–Moody groups defined over finite fields are in many cases 2-generated. We provide explicit bounds on the minimal number of generators for arbitrary Kac–Moody groups.

On montre que les groupes de Kac–Moody topologiques ou discrets définis sur des corps finis sont 2-engendrés dans de nombreux cas. On exhibe ensuite des bornes explicites sur le nombre minimal de générateurs pour un groupe de Kac–Moody arbitraire.
