The Annales de Mathématiques Pures et Appliquées, commonly known as the Annales de Gergonne, was a mathematical journal published in Nimes, France from 1810 to 1831 by Joseph-Diaz Gergonne. The annals were largely devoted to geometry, with additional articles on history, philosophy, and mathematics education showing interdisciplinarity.[1][2]

"In the Annales, Gergonne established in form and content a set of exceptionally high standards for mathematical journalism. New symbols and new terms to enrich mathematical literature are found here for the first time. The journal, which met with instant approval, became a model for many another editor. Cauchy, Poncelet, Brianchon, Steiner, Plucker, Crelle, Poisson, Ampere, Chasles, and Liouville sent articles for publication."[3]

Operational calculus was developed in the journal in 1814 by Francois-Joseph Servois.[4]
