There is no general consensus about its exact scope or . Most of mathematical activity consists of discovering and proving (by pure reasoning) properties of . These objects are either s from nature (such as s or "a "), or (in modern mathematics) abstract entities that are defined by their basic properties, called s. A consists of a succession of applications of some to already known results, including previously proved s, axioms and (in case of abstraction from nature) some basic properties that are considered as true starting points of the theory under consideration. The result of a proof is called a ''theorem''. Contrary to s, the validity of a theorem (its truth) does not rely on any but on the correctness of its reasoning (though experimentation is often useful for ...
