Following some older ideas of ours and some more recent ones due to Yao, we give a self contained (except some well known results) and relatively short proof of the Rockafellar's sum theorem for the largest possible class of maximally monotone operators on a non reflexive Banach space.
Keywords: C0-maximally monotone operator, convex function, convex set, Fitzpatrick function, maximally monotone operator, monotone operator, operator of type (FPV), sum theorem.
