At École Polytechnique, many other documents can be found in the Fonds Cholesky. They consist of military documents (Section 5.1), documents related to the École Spéciale du Bâtiment et des Travaux Publics (Section 5.2), and other manuscripts (Section 5.3). There are also handwritten notes taken by Cholesky during the lectures he followed at École Polytechnique when he was a student there, and some printed materials related to them. The most important document is an unpublished hand written course entitled Cours de Calcul Graphique of 83 pages on 15.5 × 20 cm sheets. Chapter  7 is devoted to it. It is reproduced in Appendix C. We will detail the two books written by Cholesky in Section 5.4.
