History of the annals
Annals of the Institut Henri Poincaré
From 1930, IHP started its own journal, the Annales de l'Institut Henri Poincaré. Among the first authors were Einstein, Darwin, Fermi, De Donder, Pólya, Lévy, Kostitzin, Born, Brillouin, Bloc, Dirac, Carleman, etc. Aside them, contributors to the first years of the journal included: Birkhoff (the collaborator of É. Borel in the foundation of the IHP) in dynamic systems; the founders of the mathematical theory of probabilities (other than Lévy) Cantelli, de Finetti, von Mises; the philosopher Reichenbach, physicists Schrödinger, Pauli, Gamow, etc.
All issues have been digitized and are available onNumdam.org.
Annales Henri Poincaré and Annales de l’IHP – B/C/D
The Annals of the Institut Henri Poincaré were split in 1964 into two thematic branches (corresponding to the two disciplines which motivated the founding of the institute in 1928): series A for theoretical physics, and series B for probabilities and statistics.
Twenty years later series C was created for nonlinear analysis.
In 2000 series A merged with Helvetica Physica Acta to give the Annales Henri Poincaré.
Finally in 2014 series D was created, dedicated to the theme: combinatorics, physics and interactions.
Thus the original Annales de l'Institut Henri Poincaré became the Annales Henri Poincaré, and the Annales de l'Institut Henri Poincaré B, C and D. They belong to the Association Publications de l'Institut Henri Poincaré, jointly with the Swiss Physical Society for the first title.
Association Publications de l’Institut Henri Poincaré
In 1982, an association under the 1901 law was created entitled Institut Henri Poincaré, with the aim of "developing, animating and coordinating the outreach activities of mathematicians, among themselves and with the public".
In 1999 this association was renamed Publications de l'Institut Henri Poincaré (PIHP) and its goal became "to develop, animate and coordinate publishing activities in mathematics and physics, and to support the development of the Institut Henri Poincaré.
The PIHP association is traditionally chaired by the director of IHP.

The two journals Annales de l'Institut Henri Poincaré, physique théorique and Helvetica Physical Acta merged into a single new journal under the name Annales Henri Poincaré - A Journal of Theoretical and Mathematical Physics edited jointly by the Institut Henri Poincaré and by the Swiss Physical Society.
The goal of the journal is to serve the international scientific community in theoretical and mathematical physics by collecting and publishing original research papers meeting the highest professional standards in the field. The emphasis will be on analytical theoretical and mathematical physics in a broad sense.
The journal is organized into eighteen sections:

- Conformal Field Theory
- Constructive Field Theory
- Dynamical Systems
- Equilibrium and Nonequilibrium Statistical Mechanics
- General Relativity and Geometric Partial Differential Equations

The Nonlinear Analysis section of the Annales de l'Institut Henri Poincaré is an international journal created in 1983 which publishes original and high quality research articles. It concentrates on all domains concerned with nonlinear analysis, specially applicable to PDE, mechanics, physics, economy, without overlooking the numerical aspects.

The unfolding of new ideas in physics is often tied to the development of new combinatorial methods, and conversely some problems in combinatorics have been successfully attacked using methods inspired by statistical physics or quantum field theory.
The journal is dedicated to publishing high-quality original research articles and survey articles in which combinatorics and physics interact in both directions. Combinatorial papers should be motivated by potential applications to physical phenomena or models, while physics papers should contain some interesting combinatorial development.
Both rigorous mathematical proof and heuristic physical reasoning have a place in this journal, but each must be clearly labeled. Definitions and proofs should be presented with the precision and rigor that are expected in a mathematics journal. Conjectures based on heuristic physical arguments and/or numerical evidence are warmly encouraged, but they should be clearly labeled as such and should be stated as precisely as possible.
Authors should remember that readers of the journal will come from a wide variety of backgrounds, both mathematical (not only combinatorics but also algebra, topology, geometry, analysis, probability, etc) and physical (quantum field theory, statistical mechanics, quantum gravity etc). Therefore, authors should write with such a diverse audience in mind and should take care to provide, in the introductory section of their article, a clear statement of the problem to be studied and the mathematical and/or physical background from which it arises. Authors are also encouraged to provide, in the second section of the article, a brief pedagogical review of the mathematical or physical tools that will be used in their work.
The list of specific subject areas in which articles are anticipated includes:
- Combinatorics of renormalization
- Combinatorics of cluster, virial and related expansions
- Discrete geometry and combinatorics of quantum gravity
- Graph polynomials and statistical-mechanics models
- Topological graph polynomials and quantum field theory
- Physical applications of combinatorial Hopf algebras, matroids, combinatorial species, and other combinatorial structures
- Exact solutions of statistical-mechanical models
- Combinatorics and algebra of integrable systems
- Computational complexity and its relation with statistical physics
- Computational/algorithmic aspects of combinatorial physics
- Interactions of combinatorial physics with topology, geometry, probability theory, or computer science
Each year, editorial boards of Annals A, B and C award a prize which recognizes the most outstanding article(s) published in their respective journals.
