I have an intuitive understanding of the definitions that will follow, but in my search to find specific definitions I only come up with vague explanations and contentious or subjective uses of those definitions. Please provide some definitions (mathematical) for the following list (and sources if possible):(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

proposition

lemma

corollary

theorem

principle

law

rule

Thanks
