Les publications mathématiques de l’IHES

Published internationally in three languages, Les Publications mathématiques de l’IHES is one of the most prestigious journals in its field.


Les Publications mathématiques de l’IHES was created in 1959 under the leadership of Léon Motchane, and Jean Dieudonné, professor at the institute.

Issues were first published at irregular intervals and in four languages: French, English, German and Russian. (The latter language has now been abandoned). Gradually, IHES published two annual volumes totalling 400 pages. Since 2012, the journal has had a circulation of 320 printed copies. It is also available on line and on numdam.org.

Les Publications mathématiques de l’IHES is an international journal publishing papers of highest scientific level. Thanks to its worldwide distribution (it can be found in the libraries of the major mathematical institutions in the world), to its tradition of publishing landmark articles and to its broad coverage of the discipline, it has won international recognition.

Jean Dieudonné was the journal’s first editor-in-chief. Jacques Tits succeeded him in 1980 to 1998, followed by Etienne Ghys until 2009.

The editorial board has expanded over the years. Pierre Deligne, Dennis Sullivan, René Thom, all IHES professors, were the first to join the committee in 1980.

They were followed by Mikhail Gromov in 1982, Jean Bourgain in 1987, Maxim Kontsevich in 1996, Laurent Lafforgue in 1999 and Claire Voisin in 2007.

Les Publications mathématiques de l’IHES was managed in 2010 and 2011 by Claire Voisin and Sergiu Klainerman and  by Claire Voisin from January 2012 until June 2019. Nicolas Bergeron has taken over as managing editor since July 2019.
