We give the presentation of exceptional bounded symmetric domains using the Albert algebra and exceptional Jordan triple systems. The first chapter is devoted to Cayley-Graves algebras, the second to exceptional Jordan triple systems. In the third chapter, we give a geometric description of the two exceptional bounded symmetric domains, their boundaries and their compactification.
