Mathematical theory
From Infogalactic: the planetary knowledge core
The term mathematical theory is used to refer to a mathematical subfield. A theory can be a body of knowledge, and so in this sense a "mathematical theory" refers to an area of mathematical research.^{[1]}^{[2]} This is distinct from the idea of mathematical models. Branches of mathematics like group theory and number theory are examples of this.
