Hilbert is probably most famous for the 23 problems that he posed to the Second International Congress of Mathematicians in Paris in 1900, some of which still remain unsolved. As he delivered his speech giving the challenge to the mathematical community which is still thinking and trying to solve some of them, he said: Hilbert is also famous for his work on infinity.

One of the problems that Hilbert challenged mathematicians to solve in Paris 1900, was the famous Fermat's Last Theorem. Or see the presentation on the Fermat's Last Theorem by clicking on a picture below. Hilbert was a great friend of Minkowski, another famous mathematician that appears in our Famous Children Gallery.
