Hilbert's 24th problem concerns simplicity of proofs. The aim of the project to reassess Hilbert's 24th problem as a philosophical challenge (rather than a purely formal exercise) It seems that there was a 24th problem which was "cancelled". The following is from an article that appeared in American Mathematical Monthly in 2003. Ever been to a Hotel only to find that it is full? The problem is that it has only got a finite number of rooms, and so they can quickly get full. However, Hilbert managed to build a hotel with an infinite number of rooms. Below is the story of his hotel. When the Hotel first opened, everything went fine. He had lots of visitors In 1900 Hilbert set out 23 unsolved problems that would keep mathematicians busy for the next hundred years. He was obsessed with the formalization of all of math and physics, a dream that was shattered in 1931 by Kurt Gödel through his incompleteness theorems In computability theory, the halting problem is the problem of determining, from a description of an arbitrary computer program and an input, whether the program will finish running, or continue to run forever. Alan Turing proved in 1936 that a general algorithm to solve the halting problem for all possible program-input pairs cannot exist. For any program f that might determine if programs.

If one reads the descriptions of the problems in Hilbert's paper, one realizes that some questions are concrete whereas the others are stated somewhat vaguely.The 24th problem that I will quote below definitely falls into the latter category Wim van Drongelen, in Signal Processing for Neuroscientists (Second Edition), 2018. 13.6.3 Examples.

Hilbert's paper [37] that the importance of the problems became quite clear, and it was the American Mathematical Society that very quickly supplied English-language readers with both a report on and a translation of Hilbert's address Hilberts 24. Problem ist ein mathematisches Problem, dessen Formulierung in Hilberts Nachlass gefunden wurde und das manchmal als Ergänzung seiner Liste von 23 mathematischen Problemen benannt wird. Hilbert stellt dabei die Frage nach Kriterien beziehungsweise Beweisen dafür, ob ein Beweis der einfachste für ein mathematisches Problem ist Like Hilbert's infinite Grand Hotel problem.... I've spent the past 30 minutes googling this reference To recap for those who don't want to spend that time... It's the thought experiment of a hotel with countably infinite rooms, all occupied It seems to me the problem with all Hilbert's Hotel is it presumes that the infinite hotel is actually a finite one! Look at the phrasing of it: All the rooms are occupied. This means that the Hotelier had to go through each of these infinite rooms, checking people in, putting mints on the pillows, getting fresh towels, etc The most famous of these is Kurt Gödel's 1931 Incompleteness Theorem, but just behind it in the annals of mathematics is the 1970 proof by Yuri Matiyasevich that Hilbert's famous Tenth Problem will never be solved, a proof that might never have happened without the almost other-worldly mathematical insight of Julia Robinson (1919-1985)
Hilbert's thirteenth problem involves the study of solutions of algebraic equations. The object is to obtain a complexity estimate for an algebraic function. As of now, the problem remains open. [24] Yu. P. Ofman 1961 On best approximation of functions of two variables by functions of the form ζ(x) + ζ(y). At the dawn of the twentieth century Hilbert proposed of list of problems that he hoped would be solved in the coming hundred years. The list, later expanded, proved more successful than David Hilbert could have imagined: the problems became canonical, and those who solved them became members of the Honors Class

David Hilbert's father, Otto Hilbert, was the son of a judge who was a high ranking Privy Councillor.Otto was a county judge who had married Maria Therese Erdtmann, the daughter of Karl Erdtmann, a Königsberg merchant.

Having stumbled upon this article only today, I admit that I have not searched for other articles yet. So I would also appreciate being directed to other books and articles on this cancelled 24th problem. In this talk we will discuss two central problems in algebraic number theory and their interconnections: explicit class field theory (also known as Hilbert's 12th Problem), and the special values of L-functions

The paper I linked above discusses the history and the role of Hilbert's problems and I think is worth reading. Most of mathematical logic, as we know it right now, did not exist when this question was asked and you can simply disregard the question by saying "this is not a mathematical question". On the other hand, the same could be said about the second problem on the consistency of arithmetic today, if mathematicians did not develop the necessary tools to deal with this problem. The original Hilbert's 16th problem can be split into four parts consisting of Problems A-D. In this paper, the progress of study on Hilbert's 16th problem is presented, and the relationship between Hilbert's 16th problem and bifurcations of planar vector fields is discussed. The material is presented in eight sections

The problem of cyclicity of a center or a focus of a system of the form (1) is known as the local 16th Hilbert problem in (Françoise and Yomdin (1997)), based on its connection to Hilbert's still. Incidentally, my personal suspicion is that if a satisfactory theory of simplicity is developed, the "normal" state of affairs will be that a theorem does not have a unique simplest proof. The quest for a definition of simplicity that makes every theorem have a unique simplest proof strikes me as similar to the quest for a consistency proof for mathematics or the quest for a decision procedure for Diophantine equations: A childhood dream that we must eventually learn to let go of.
Let me begin by presenting the problem itself. The twenty-fourth problem belongs to the realm of foundations of mathematics. In a nutshell, it asks for the simplest proof of any theorem.

Who of us would not be glad to lift the veil behind which the future lies hidden; to cast a glance at the next advances of our science and at the secrets of its development during future centuries The tenth problem (or tenth class of problems, since some of Hilbert's problems contain several very hard and largely unconnected problems worthy of separate consideration) is the only obvious decision problem among the 23 classes of problems; of course, any mathematical problem can be reformulated (somewhat artificially) as a decision problem Hilbert's fth problem, from his famous list of twenty-three problems in mathematics from 1900, asks for a topological description of Lie groups, without any direct reference to smooth structure.

The statement x: A, usually read as "x is of type A" can also be read as "x is a proof of the proposition A". Now, if we think of types as homotopy types, this encourages us to think about the topology of the space of proofs of A. For example, as Hilbert suggests, we may look for a path between two proofs, (equivalently read as an instance in the equality type Eq[A]).

In 1900, the mathematician David Hilbert published a list of 23 unsolved mathematical problems. The list of problems turned out to be very influential. After Hilbert's death, another problem was found in his writings; this is sometimes known as Hilbert's 24th problem today. This problem is about finding criteria to show that a solution to a problem is the simplest possible Hilbert originally included 24 problems on his list, but decided against including one of them in the published list. The 24th problem (in proof theory, on a criterion for simplicity and general methods) was rediscovered in Hilbert's original manuscript notes by German historian Rüdiger Thiele [] in 2000. [5 The sixth problem has inspired several waves of research. Its mathematical content changes in time in a way that is very natural for a 'programmatic call' [].In the 1930s, the axiomatic foundation of probability seemed to be finalized on the basis of measure theory [].Nevertheless, Kolmogorov and Solomonoff in the 1960s stimulated new interest in the foundation of probability (algorithmic.
