Which are the 23 Hilbert Problems?

The original was published in German in a couple of places. A translation was published by the AMS in 1902. This article has been reprinted in 1976 by the American Mathematical Society (see references).

The AMS Symposium mentioned at the end contains a series of papers on the then-current state of most of the Problems, as well as the problems.
