    We explore a variety of pleasing connections between analysis, number theory and operator theory, while revisiting a number of beautiful inequalities originating with Hilbert, Hardy and others. We shall first establish the aforementioned Hilbert inequality and then apply it to various multiple zeta values. In consequence we obtain the norm of the classical Hilbert matrix, while illustrating the interplay of numerical and symbolic computation with classical mathematics.
