DAVID HILBERT                                        
            David Hilbert was born on January 23, 1862 and died on February 14,1943. He was a German mathematician. He invented and discovered many ideas. they including Invarent theory and the axiomatization of geometry. He also invented the Theory of Hilbert spaces.
                David went to the Friedrichskolleg Gymnasium. After he realized that he did not like the school, he transferred to the Wilhelm Gymnasium and graduated from there. After he graduated he attended University of Konigsberg. David recieved his doctorate in 1885.   After getting his doctorate he stayed at the same university to be a professor. He also married Kathe Jerosch. She was the daughter of a Konigsberg merchant. After he had his son he was given the position of Chaiman of Mathematics.
                  Hilbert's first work on invariant functions led him to the demonstration of his famous finiteness theorem. That was in 1888. David Hilbert made the most influential list of unsolved problems at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Paris. There was 23 problems on that list. The 23 problems was launched as a talk "The Problems of Mathematics" presented during the course of the Second International Congress of Mathematicians held in Paris. Here is the introduction of the speech that Hilbert gave:
Who among us would not be happy to lift the veil behind which is hidden the future; to gaze at the coming developments of our science and at the secrets of its development in the centuries to come? What will be the ends toward which the spirit of future generations of mathematicians will tend? What methods, what new facts will the new century reveal in the vast and rich field of mathematical thought?

              Around 1909, Hilbert dedicated himself to the study of differential and integral equations.His work had direct consequences for important parts of modern functional analysis. In order to carry out...
