A long-lasting publishing house

The SMF  has published  mathematical articles since 1873, when the first SMF Bulletin was published.

An active publishing house

Today, the SMF publishes several journals and book collections. Its publications are open to the international mathematical community. From Astérisque to the Revue d'Histoire des Mathématiques, from Documents Mathématiques to Bulletin et Mémoires, from Cours Spécialisés to Panoramas & Synthèses, a wide variety of facets of mathematics is highlighted. The quality of the selected texts  is a guarantee of their durability; the  journals and books  of the SMF are world-famous references still quoted decades after their publication.
