I have always felt that they belonged together, Courant being, as I have written, the natural and necessary sequel to Hilbert the rest of the story. To make the two volumes more compatible when published as one, we have combined and brought up to date the indexes of names and dates. U nfortu nately we have had to omit Hermann Weyls article on David Hilbert and his mathematical work, but the interested reader can always find it in the hard back edition of Hilbert and in Weyls collected papers. At the request of a number of readers we have included a listing of all of Hilberts famous Paris problems. It was, of course, inevitable that we would give the resulting joint volume the title Hilbert-Courant.
