In 1900, the mathematician David Hilbert gave a lecture at the International Congress of Mathematicians in which he proposed 23 research problems for the next century (and beyond). This is probably the most famous list of research problems in mathematics. Some of Hilbert's problems have been solved and some are still open.

This first talk is an overview of some of these problems: their statement, some background, and current status. All the later math club talks this semester will be about one of the Hilbert problems.
