A theorem is a demonstrated result of a set of axioms. Theorems may also be known as lemmas, if they are intended to be used as part of the proof of another theorem; or they may be known as corollaries, if they are an immediate consequence of some other theorem.

Mathematics is in large part the process of proving new theorems.
