  Theoretical physics - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Theoretical physics employs mathematical models and abstractions, as opposed to experimental physics, in an attempt to understand Nature.
All of these achievements depended on the theoretical physics as a moving force both to suggest experiments and to consolidate results — often by ingenious application of existing mathematics, or, as in the case of Descartes and Newton (with Leibniz), by inventing new mathematics.
Modern theoretical physics attempts to unify theories and explain phenomena in further attempts to understand the Universe, from the cosmologic to the elementary particle scale.

Physical theories model reality and are a statement of what has been observed, and provide predictions of new observations.
Physical theories which are simplier tend to be accepted over theories which are complex.
The proposed theories of physics are relatively new theories which deal with the study of physics which include scientific approaches, means for determining the validity of models and new types of reasoning used to arrive at the theory.

Physical theories are also more likely to be accepted if they connect a wide range of phenomena.
Theoretical physics is just one important part of physics; the other part is experimental physics.
The difference between theoretical physics and mathematical physics is that mathematical physics finds the mathematical rigor required in mathematics to be more important than the contact with experiments and observations.
