Foundations of geometry
by David Hilbert
(
Book
)
210 editions published between 1899 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,451 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
)
10 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 241 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

High ethanol fuel endurance a study of the effects of running gasoline with 15% ethanol concentration in current production outboard fourstroke engines and conventional twostroke outboard marine engines : June 16, 2010June 30, 2011
by David Hilbert
(
)
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 177 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 (ethanolfree gasoline) to determine the effects of increased ethanol on engine durability. Testing was conducted using a 300hour wideopen 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 openloop, nonfeedback 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, fourstroke E15 engine exhibited variable hydrocarbon emissions at 300 hours  an indication of lean misfire. The 300HP, fourstroke, supercharged Verado engine and the 200HP, twostroke 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 E0dedicated engines completed the durability cycle without incident. Additional testing is necessary to link the observed engine failures to ethanol in the test fuel
