Foundations of geometry by
David Hilbert(
Book
)
305 editions published between 1891 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 2,909 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

Methods of mathematical physics by
Richard Courant(
Book
)
283 editions published between 1924 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the first volume of this work came out in Germany in 1924, this book, together with its second volume, has remained standard in the field. Courant and Hilbert's treatment restores the historically deep connections between physical intuition and mathematical development, providing the reader with a unified approach to mathematical physics. The present volume represents Richard Courant's second and final revision of 1953

The theory of algebraic number fields by
David Hilbert(
Book
)
12 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 254 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 (18621943) 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

If the life of any 20th century mathematician can be said to be a history of mathematics in his time, it is that of David Hilbert. To the enchanted young mathematicians and physicists who flocked to study with him in Gottingen before and between the World Wars, he seemed mathematics personified, the very air around him "scientifically electric." His remarkably prescient proposal in 1900 of twentythree problems for the coming century set the course of much subsequent mathematics and remains a feat that no scientist in any field has been able to duplicate. When he died, Nature remarked that there was scarcely a mathematician in the world whose work did not derive from that of Hilbert. Constance Reid's classic biography is a moving, nontechnical account of the passionate scientific life of this man  from the early days in Konigsberg, when his revolutionary work was dismissed as "theology," to the golden years in Gottingen before Hitler came to power and within a few months destroyed the entire Hilbert school. The Copernicus paperback edition makes this book available to new generations of mathematicians who know the name Hilbert, which is everywhere in mathematics, but do not know the man

The Hilbert challenge by
Jeremy Gray(
Book
)
2 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Few problems in mathematics have had the status of those posed by David Hilbert in 1900. Mathematicians have made their reputations by solving some of them like Fermat's last theorem, but several remain unsolved including the Riemann Hypotheses, which has eluded all the great minds of this century. A hundred years later, this book takes a fresh look at the problems, the man who set them, and the reasons for their lasting impact on the mathematics of the twentieth century. In this book, the authors consider what makes this the preeminent collection of problems in mathematics, what they tell us about what drives mathematicians, and the nature of reputation, influence and power in the world of modern mathematics
