Methods of mathematical physics by Richard Courant ( Book )
87 editions published between 1930 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 2,193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the first volume of this work came out in Germany in 1924, this book has remained a classic in its field. Courant and Hilbert's treatment restores the historically deep connections between physical intuition and mathematical development, providing t

Grundlagen der Geometrie by David Hilbert ( Book )
207 editions published between 1899 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 1,593 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Klappentext: David Hilberts bahnbrechendes Werk "Grundlagen der Geometrie" erscheint seit 1899 im Verlag B. G. Teubner. Diese klassische axiomatische Grundlegung der Geometrie ist aus einem Ferienkurs für Lehrer und einer sich daran anschließenden Vorlesung in Göttingen hervorgegangen. Die von Michael Toepell im Rahmen der Sammlung "TEUBNER-ARCHIV zur Mathematik" herausgegebene Edition enthält neben Hilberts Originaltext und den Supplementen von Paul Bernays auch aktuelle Beiträge sowie bisher unveröffentlichte Archivalien. Der Herausgeber schreibt in seinem Vorwort: Hilberts Buch "markiert den Übergang von der empirisch verankerten zur formal-deduktiven Geometrie. Sein klarer axiomatischer Aufbau wurde zugleich richtungsweisend für das mathematische Denken des 20. Jahrhunderts."
Foundations of geometry by David Hilbert ( Book )
82 editions published between 1891 and 2013 in English and German and held by 1,481 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Along with the writings of Hilbert's friend and correspondent Frege, Hilbert's Grundlagen der Geometrie is the major prop that set the stage for Russell and Whitehead's Principia Mathematica. Hilbert presents a new axiomatization of geometry, the reduction of geometry to algebra, and introduces the distinction between mathematics and metamathematics, with a new theory of proof. This edition is translated from the tenth German edition, including all the improvements which Hilbert derived from his own reflections and the contributions of other writers. --Back cover

The theory of algebraic number fields by David Hilbert ( Book )
40 editions published between 1897 and 2011 in 4 languages and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is an English translation of Hilbert's Zahlbericht, the monumental report on the theory of algebraic number field which he composed for the German Mathematical Society. In this magisterial work Hilbert provides a unified account of the development of algebraic number theory up to the end of the nineteenth century. He greatly simplified Kummer's theory and laid the foundation for a general theory of abelian fields and class field theory. David Hilbert (1862-1943) made great contributions to many areas of mathematics - invariant theory, algebraic number theory, the foundations of geometry, integral equations, the foundations of mathematics and mathematical physics. He is remembered also for his lecture at the Paris International Congress of Mathematicians in 1900 where he presented a set of 23 problems "from the discussion of which an advancement of science may be expected"--His expectations have been amply fulfilled

High ethanol fuel endurance a study of the effects of running gasoline with 15% ethanol concentration in current production outboard four-stroke engines and conventional two-stroke outboard marine engines : June 16, 2010-June 30, 2011 by David Hilbert ( )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 194 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Three Mercury Marine outboard marine engines were evaluated for durability using E15 fuel - gasoline blended with 15% ethanol. Direct comparison was made to operation on E0 (ethanol-free gasoline) to determine the effects of increased ethanol on engine durability. Testing was conducted using a 300-hour wide-open throttle (WOT) test protocol, a typical durability cycle used by the outboard marine industry. Use of E15 resulted in reduced CO emissions, as expected for open-loop, non-feedback control engines. HC emissions effects were variable. Exhaust gas and engine operating temperatures increased as a consequence of leaner operation. Each E15 test engine exhibited some deterioration that may have been related to the test fuel. The 9.9 HP, four-stroke E15 engine exhibited variable hydrocarbon emissions at 300 hours - an indication of lean misfire. The 300HP, four-stroke, supercharged Verado engine and the 200HP, two-stroke legacy engine tested with E15 fuel failed to complete the durability test. The Verado engine failed three exhaust valves at 285 endurance hours while the 200HP legacy engine failed a main crank bearing at 256 endurance hours. All E0-dedicated engines completed the durability cycle without incident. Additional testing is necessary to link the observed engine failures to ethanol in the test fuel
