He made 23 problems called the Hilbert problems. They were 23 problems in which he thought mathematicians should devote themselves to.
He also proved Waring's theorem. Expertise He developed important tools that are used today in modern mathematical physics.
He was a member of the Royal Society.
He received a Bolyai Prize in 1910.
He was one of the first people to distinguish the difference between mathematics and metamathematics. Other Contributions One problem of his 23 Hilbert problems are still not solved today.
