Courant by Constance Reid

David Hilbert, Director of the Mathematical Institute of G?ttingen during its glory years, is the formulator of the famous Hilbert Problems that set the course of mathematics from 1900 until the present day. Richard Courant was Hilberts student and successor as director of the Mathematical Institute until his forcible removal in 1933. He co-authored Methods of Mathematical Physics (1924) with Hilbert, a classic text that seemed almost clairvoyant in its prediction of the mathematical needs of quantum physics. He also founded the Courant Institute at New York University. Poignant, lively and fascinating, these two books present a sweeping history of twentieth- century mathematics as it was expressed through the lives of these two great friends and colleagues.
