Henri Poincaré Institute

Henri Poincaré institute

The Henri Poincaré Institute: today as always, a tool at the service of mathematicians and physicists.

The Institute Henri Poincaré provides an excellent meeting place for mathematicians and physicists, both French and foreign. It is also active in the area of interactions between mathematics and other disciplines.

An internal school of UPMC, Henri Poincaré Institute enjoys international renown, comparable to that of the most prestigious of foreign institutes (Newton Institute Cambridge, MSRI Berkeley and ITP Santa Barbara).
The Emile Borel Centre, which is part of the IHP (Henri Poincaré Institute) organises three-month or six-month thematic programmes in mathematics and theoretical physics. Within the framework of these programmes, courses, conferences and seminars ensure scientific openness and interdisciplinarity.

The IHP is home to the majority of the academic societies linked to mathematics:

- Mathematical Sciences of Paris Foundation (FSMPNouvelle fenêtre)
- French Mathematical Society (SMFNouvelle fenêtre)
- Society of Applied and Industrial Mathematics (SMAINouvelle fenêtre)
- French Physics Society (SFPNouvelle fenêtre)
- French Statistical Society (SFdS)
- Association for Women in MathematicsNouvelle fenêtre
- World Mathematical Year 2000.

The IHP is a member of ERCOMNouvelle fenêtre (European Research Centres on Mathematics) and the IMSINouvelle fenêtre (International Mathematical Sciences Institutes), which groups together, at European level and worldwide, the principal comparable research centres.  The IHP is listed by the International Centre for Scientific ResearchNouvelle fenêtre.
The IHP library is equipped with a particularly rich selection of documentary resources.
