Foundations of geometry by
David Hilbert(
Book
)
132 editions published between 1891 and 2014 in 5 languages and held by 2,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Along with the writings of Hilbert's friend and correspondent Frege, Hilbert's Grundlagen der Geometrie is the major prop that set the stage for Russell and Whitehead's Principia Mathematica. Hilbert presents a new axiomatization of geometry, the reduction of geometry to algebra, and introduces the distinction between mathematics and metamathematics, with a new theory of proof. This edition is translated from the tenth German edition, including all the improvements which Hilbert derived from his own reflections and the contributions of other writers. Back cover

Methods of mathematical physics by
Richard Courant(
Book
)
250 editions published between 1924 and 2013 in 4 languages and held by 2,274 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since the first volume of this work came out in Germany in 1924, this book, together with its second volume, has remained standard in the field. Courant and Hilbert's treatment restores the historically deep connections between physical intuition and mathematical development, providing the reader with a unified approach to mathematical physics. The present volume represents Richard Courant's second and final revision of 1953

The theory of algebraic number fields by
David Hilbert(
Book
)
12 editions published between 1998 and 2011 in English and held by 252 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is an English translation of Hilbert's Zahlbericht, the monumental report on the theory of algebraic number field which he composed for the German Mathematical Society. In this magisterial work Hilbert provides a unified account of the development of algebraic number theory up to the end of the nineteenth century. He greatly simplified Kummer's theory and laid the foundation for a general theory of abelian fields and class field theory. David Hilbert (18621943) made great contributions to many areas of mathematics  invariant theory, algebraic number theory, the foundations of geometry, integral equations, the foundations of mathematics and mathematical physics. He is remembered also for his lecture at the Paris International Congress of Mathematicians in 1900 where he presented a set of 23 problems "from the discussion of which an advancement of science may be expected"His expectations have been amply fulfilled

David Hilbert's lectures on the foundations of mathematics and physics, 18911933 by
David Hilbert(
Book
)
11 editions published in 2004 in German and English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This volume contains six sets of notes for lectures on the foundations of geometry held by Hilbert in the period 18911902. It also reprints the first edition of Hilbert's Grundlagen der Geometrie of 1899, together with the important additions which appeared first in the French translation of 1900. The lectures document the emergence of a new approach to foundational study (the 'axiomatic method'), which concentrates on assessing the logical weight of central propositions by exploiting to the full the method of independence proofs by modelling. This culminates in the lectures of 1898/1899 (the immediate precursor of the 1899 monograph) and 1902. The lectures contain many reflections and investigations which never found their way into print."Jacket
