1862 – Hilbert – bio

David Hilbert was born in 1862 in Germany and was a mathematician. He worked on creating a set of axioms as the foundation for Euclidean geometry. He was the creator of a concept of abstract vector space that extends mathematical techniques beyond Euclidean spaces into spaces of many dimensions. This is now know as “Hilbert Space”. Hilbert was a close friend of Minkowski and the work of both men had large influences on both quantum theory and relativity theory.
