    Proceedings of Symposia in Pure Mathematics
    Volume: 281976; 310 pp
    MSC: Primary 00

    In May 1974, the American Mathematical Society sponsored a special symposium on the mathematical consequences of the Hilbert problems, held at Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, Illinois. The central concern of the symposium was to focus upon areas of importance in contemporary mathematical research which can be seen as descended in some way from the ideas and tendencies put forward by Hilbert in his speech at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Paris in 1900. The Organizing Committee's basic objective was to obtain as broad a representation of significant mathematical research as possible within the general constraint of relevance to the Hilbert problems. The Committee consisted of P. R. Bateman (secretary), F. E. Browder (chairman), R. C. Buck, D. Lewis, and D. Zelinsky.

    This two-part volume contains the proceedings of that symposium and includes papers corresponding to all the invited addresses with one exception: Part 2 contains the address of Professor B. Stanpacchia, which he could not be deliver at the symposium because of health problems.

    The volume includes photographs of the speakers (by the courtesy of Paul Halmos) and a translation of the text of the Hilbert Problems as published in the Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society of 1903. The papers are published in the order of the problems to which they are filiated, and not in the alphabetical order of their authors.

    An additional unusual feature of the volume is the article entitled “Problems of present day mathematics” which appears immediately after the text of Hilbert's article. The development of this material was initiated by Jean Dieudonné through correspondence with a number of mathematicians throughout the world. The resulting problems, as well as others obtained by the editor, appear in the form in which they were suggested.
