Library Home || Full Table of Contents || Library Help
|The "embassy" of French mathematics and theoretical physics. Founded in 1928, the Institut Henri Poincaré (IHP) hosts quarterly thematic programs; doctoral courses; seminars such as Mathematic Park, a biweekly mini-class for high school and university students; and conferences such as the cycle "Une question, un chercheur." It also publishes The Annals of the Institute Henri Poincaré and produces documentary films on figures such as Lagrange, Einstein, and Patrice Jeener, "The Engraver of Mathematics." See, in particular, the Institute's searchable Library within the collections of the Pierre & Marie Curie University (UMPC). Through the Poincaré Chair, the IHP and the Clay Mathematics Institute offer exceptionally talented young mathematicians ideal working conditions to "develop profound and audacious research projects and to build their international recognition."|
