We introduce random interlacements for transient vertex-reinforced jump processes on a general graph G. Using increasing finite subgraphs Gn of G with wired boundary conditions, we show convergence of the vertex-reinforced jump process on Gn observed in a finite window to the random interlacement observed in the same window.

Nous introduisons les entrelacs aléatoires pour le processus de sauts renforcé par sommets sur un graphe général G. A l’aide d’une suite croissante de sous-graphes Gn de G avec condition aux limites de Dirichlet, nous montrons la convergence du processus de sauts renforcé par sommets sur Gn observé sur une fenêtre finie vers l’entrelacs aléatoire observé sur la même fenêtre.
