David Hilbert was a German mathematician who made significant contributions to a number of fields, including algebra, analysis, geometry, and number theory. Hilbert is best known for his work on the foundations of mathematics, which helped to establish the field of mathematical logic.

Hilbert was born in 1862 in Königsberg, Prussia (now Kaliningrad, Russia). He attended the University of Königsberg, where he studied mathematics under Hermann Minkowski. Hilbert graduated from the university in 1885 with a Ph.D. in mathematics.

## He made significant contributions to a number of fields

Hilbert made significant contributions to a number of fields, including algebra, analysis, geometry, and number theory. In 1900, he published his influential paper “Mathematical Problems,” which helped to establish the field of mathematical logic. Hilbert also developed the axiomatic approach to mathematics, which is still in use today.

Hilbert died in 1943 in Göttingen, Germany. In 1950, the International Congress of Mathematicians awarded him the Fields Medal posthumously.
