The Epsilon Calculus
The epsilon calculus is a logical formalism developed by David Hilbert in the service of his program in the foundations of mathematics. The epsilon operator is a term-forming operator which replaces quantifiers in ordinary predicate logic. Specifically, in the calculus, a term x A denotes some x satisfying A x ), if there is one. In Hilbert's Program, the epsilon terms play the role of ideal elements; the aim of Hilbert's finitistic consistency proofs is to give a procedure which removes such terms from a formal proof. The procedures by which this is to be carried out are based on Hilbert's epsilon substitution method. The epsilon calculus, however, has applications in other contexts as well. The first general application of the epsilon calculus was in Hilbert's epsilon theorems, which in turn provide the basis for the first correct proof of Herbrand's theorem. More recently, variants of the epsilon operator have been applied in linguistics and linguistic philosophy to deal with anaphoric pronouns.

Mathematical Problems
Lecture delivered before the International Congress of Mathematicians at Paris in 1900
By Professor David Hilbert
Who of us would not be glad to lift the veil behind which the future lies hidden; to cast a glance at the next advances of our science and at the secrets of its development during future centuries? What particular goals will there be toward which the leading mathematical spirits of coming generations will strive? What new methods and new facts in the wide and rich field of mathematical thought will the new centuries disclose? History teaches the continuity of the development of science. We know that every age has its own problems, which the following age either solves or casts aside as profitless and replaces by new ones. If we would obtain an idea of the probable development of mathematical knowledge in the immediate future, we must let the unsettled questions pass before our minds and look over the problems which the science of today sets and whose solution we expect from the future. To such a review of problems the present day, lying at the meeting of the centuries, seems to me well adapted. For the close of a great epoch not only invites us to look back into the past but also directs our thoughts to the unknown future. The deep significance of certain problems for the advance of mathematical science in general and the important role which they play in the work of the individual investigator are not to be denied. As long as a branch of science offers an abundance of problems, so long is it alive; a lack of problems foreshadows extinction or the cessation of independent development. Just as every human undertaking pursues certain objects, so also mathematical research requires its problems. It is by the solution of problems that the investigator tests the temper of his steel; he finds new methods and new outlooks, and gains a wider and freer horizon.

The History of Algebra in the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries
April 21, 2003 to April 25, 2003 Organized By: Jeremy J. Gray and Karen Hunger Parshall
Historians of mathematics have come to focus seriously on the history of modern algebra only within the last twenty-five years. That history originally tended to be done from the very technical point of view of the history of ideas, an approach typified in, for example, Morris Kline's massive Mathematical Thought from Ancient to Modern Times (1972), although Kline tended to give algebra in general rather short shrift in that work. In 1985, B. L. van der Waerden provided a more synthetic and focused account in

Normal subjects will choose a matching ratio of red to green light that falls within a fairly narrow range of values. Subjects with anomalous color vision will choose a ratio of red to green that falls outside this range, and red-green dichromats will accept any ratio of red to green as forming a match.

48. Leonard Nelson
Biography from the Friesian School site. Includes some excerpts pertaining to the relationship between david hilbert and Nelson.
Leonard Nelson (1882-1927)
Leonard Nelson, described by Karl Popper as an "outstanding personality," produced a great quantity of work (collected in the nine volumes of the Gesammelte Schriften ) in a tragically short life. The quantity and the tragedy may have both happened because Nelson was an insomniac who worked day and night and exhausted himself into a fatal case of pneumonia. Nelson's greatest contributions to philosophy were his rediscovery of Jakob Fries , his exposition, systematization, and expansion of Friesian philosophy, the use and theory of Socratic Method in his pedagogy, and his engagement with the mathematical issues of Kantian philosophy in relation to his personal and professional involvement with one of the great mathematicians of the Twentieth Century, David Hilbert (1862-1943) . Hilbert's concern with the axiomatization of geometry and all of mathematics strongly paralleled Nelson's work in the Friesian theories of truth and justification . Nelson recognized the important parallel between Hilbert's conception of meta-mathematics and Fries' distinction between critique and metaphysics Hilbert is now often overshadowed by later mathematicians; and Hilbert's desire to complete mathematics by reducing it to a finished and closed axiomatic system is now often only mentioned in the context that this was shown to be impossible by

Brief biography with references.
David Hilbert (1862-1943)
For many years, Hilbert held the position at the Mathematical Institute at the University of Göttingen that was recognized as the most prestigious mathematical position in Germany, and possibly, in the world. His mathematical accomplishments, methods, and influence have been the subject of much study and writing, all well represented by two particular works: Constance Reid, Hilbert, Springer-Verlag, New York-Heidelberg-Berlin, 1970; Hermann Weyl, "David Hilbert and His Mathematical Work," Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society A shortened version of Weyl's article is reprinted in Reid's book, which is also the source of the image of Hilbert seen here. The image dates from 1912, a time when portraits of professors were popular on postcards sold in Göttingen. Hilbert's name is remembered in connection with Emmy Noether in at least three ways: (1) her transition from Gordan's constructivist methods to Hilbert's axiomatic and existential methods, largely through her work with Ernst Fischer while she was still at Erlangen; (2) Hilbert and Klein's invitation for Noether to join them at Göttingen, where she became one of the world's leading algebraists; and (3) Hilbert's often quoted rejoinder on Noether's behalf at a meeting of the University Senate. Opposers to Noether's application for the position of Privatdozent had argued, according to Reid: "How can it be allowed that a woman become a Privatdozent? Having become a Privatdozent, she can then become a professor and a member of the University Senate. Is it permitted that a woman enter the Senate?" They argued informally, "What will our soldiers think when they return to the University and find that they are expected to learn at the feet of a woman?"

David Hilbert One of the greatest mathematicians in the 20th century, and a formalist philosopher of mathematics. Aside from many creative works in mathematics, he refined the axiomatic method ( Grundlagen der Geometrie , 1899, and later works on the foundations of mathematics), proposed the Finitism (mathematics within strict finite means), and advocated Hilbert's Program which seeks to prove consistency of an axiomatized mathematics by means of Finitism. Although this program is now generally considered to have failed, it inspired many logicians such as Bernays, Goedel, Gentzen, or Herbrand. See a biography in MacTutor History of Math.

The Mathematical Problems of David Hilbert
About Hilbert's address and his 23 mathematical problems
Hilbert's address of 1900 to the International Congress of Mathematicians in Paris is perhaps the most influential speech ever given to mathematicians, given by a mathematician, or given about mathematics. In it, Hilbert outlined 23 major mathematical problems to be studied in the coming century. Some are broad, such as the axiomatization of physics (problem 6) and might never be considered completed. Others, such as problem 3, were much more specific and solved quickly. Some were resolved contrary to Hilbert's expectations, as the continuum hypothesis (problem 1). Hilbert's address was more than a collection of problems. It outlined his philosophy of mathematics and proposed problems important to his philosophy. Although almost a century old, Hilbert's address is still important and should be read (at least in part) by anyone interested in pursuing research in mathematics. In 1974 a symposium was held at Northern Illinois University on the Mathematical developments arising from Hilbert problems.

MIA Encyclopedia of Marxism : Glossary of People
Hilbert, David (1862-1943) German mathematician who reduced geometry to a series of axioms and contributed substantially to the establishment of Formalism in foundations of mathematics. His work in 1909 on integral equations led to 20th-century research in functional analysis; his Formalism , which treats mathematics as a series of symbols which can be rearranged according to various formal rules, sheds no light on the obvious relevance of mathematics to natural science, but led to the development of meta-mathematics, the systematic study of the comparative structures of mathematical theories, which was essential to subsequent elucidation of the problems of the foundations of mathematics by and others. Hilbert introduced a highly original approach to the consideration of mathematical invariants which allowed the structure of mathematical theories to be themselves the subject of mathematical analysis in a way hither to unimagined. An invariant is that aspect of something which remains the same when a corresponding transformation is applied to something. The meaning of invariant is most easily understood in terms of geometrical transformations such as displacement (where shape and size are invariant) or dilation (where shape but not size are invariant). Hilbert proved that

Hilbert, David German mathematician, philosopher, and physicist whose work was fundamental to 20th-century mathematics. He founded the formalist school with Grundlagen der Geometrie/Foundations of Geometry 1899, which was based on his idea of postulates.
Studying algebraic invariants, Hilbert had by 1892 not only solved all the known central problems of this branch of mathematics, he had introduced sweeping developments and new areas for research, particularly in algebraic topology.
From 1909 Hilbert worked on problems of physics, such as the kinetic theory of gases and the theory of relativity.
