## Finished mathematics[edit]

*From Google cache*

Finished mathematics, as distinct from folk mathematics, is finished, published, and accepted mathematical proof that has passed rigorous peer review (called refereeing by mathematicians), and to which formal terms like "theorem" or "lemma" apply.

It implies that mathematicians believe that high standards of mathematical practice have been applied to these publications, partly but not primarily to find and correct errors.
