Mathematical theory

A mathematical theory is a mathematical model that is based on axioms. A theory can simultaneously be a body of knowledge (e.g., known axioms and definitions), so in this sense a "mathematical theory" is used to refer to an area of mathematical research within the established theory.[1][2][3]
