ab: In 1900, David Hilbert delivered an address to the International Congress
of Mathematics in Paris, citing 23 problems which acted as a spur for
much work in the 20th century. The questions varied from specific
mathematical questions to programmes of research. The main areas of
work were in algebraic number theory, logic, and topology, which was at
an early stage of development. Each problem is stated and a short
commentary on progress is given. Most, though not all, such as the
Riemann hypothesis have been solved; a few problems were poorly
formulated.
