Transcript of David Hilbert

David Hilbert
Vital Statistics
Name: David Hilbert.
Lifespan: 1862-1943.
Birthplace: Kaliningrad, Russia.
Age at death: 81 years old.
Three historic events that occurred during his life.
1. Hilbert was from a Protestant middle class family that had settled in the seventeenth century.
2. Hilbert studied at the University of Kaliningard from 1880-1884, except for his second semester, when he went to Heidelberg.
3. Hilbert was appointed to a chair at Golttingon University in 1895. In 1925, he fell sick with pernicious anemia, and died later on in 1943 and was not able to complete his scientific activity.

Education Of David Hilbert
In September 1879, Hilbert transferred from the Friedrichskolleg to the Wilhelm Gymnasium, where he spent his final schooling .The following year of 1845, he was awarded a Doctorate.After Hilbert graduate from the Wilhelm Gymnasium, he entered the University Of Konigsberg in the autumn of 1880. In his second semester, he went to Heidelberg, where he attended lectures, and returning to Konigsberg for the start of session 1881-82. Hilbert study invariant properties of certain algebraic forms.
Marital and Family Status
David Hilbert accepted a prossorship in mathematics at the University of Gottingen at which he remained for the rest of his life. He also intense interest in mathematical physics also contributed to the university 's reputation in physics.

David Hilbert's father, Otto Hilbert, was a respectable city judge. Hilbert's mother, Maria, was a philosophy and astronomy enthusiast. She's interested in mathematics like shapes, and prime numbers. This is probably the reason why David Hilbert was interested into Math at an early age.
Three Contributions To Mathematics
1. David Hilbert was a great leader and spokesperson for the discipline of mathematics in the early 20th century.
2. Hilbert was unfailing optimistic about the future of mathematics, never doubting that his 23 problems would soon be solved.
3. Later on, Hilbert could not actually construct this finite set of equations, just prove that it must exist.
Two Interesting events from his life.
1. In 1892, Hilbert was appointed professor extraordinary to replace Adolf Hurwitz at Koningsberg, and in the same year he got married to Kathe Jerosch.
2. Later on, he taught the mathematics how to axiomatize and what to do with an axiomatic system.
David Hilbert enter his first school at 8 years old but then, he was supposed to enter at the age of 6 years old. in his first semester, he took courses on integral calculusm, the theory of determinants and the curvature of surfaces. One of Hilberts chosen propositions was on physics, the other on philosphy.
