Hilbert lived in Germany for most of his life and that is where he had most of his accomplishments in.

He died on February 14, 1943 (age 81) in Gottingen, Germany. Life David Hilbert was known for being the first one to set forth a rigorous set of geometrical axioms in Foundations of Geometry (1899).

He invented a space-filling curve that was called Hilbert Curve.

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.

He was a chairman of mathematics at the University of Gottingen.
