Foundations of geometry by David Hilbert( Book )

287 editions published between 1891 and 2014 in 10 languages and held by 3,022 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 )

258 editions published between 1924 and 2013 in 5 languages and held by 2,915 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

The theory of algebraic number fields by David Hilbert( Book )

13 editions published between 1897 and 2011 in English and German and held by 249 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
