Worked in integral equations led to research in functional analysis
Hilbert space

University of Göttingen had large mathematics tradition because of other famous mathematicians
Tradition continued to grow into 20th century because of Hilbert
His interest in physics also contributed to university's reputation in physics
His last years
In 1909 he proved the conjecture in number theory that for any n, all positive integers are sums of a certain fixed number of nth powers; for example, 5 = 22 + 12, in which n = 2.
