in theory: You use in theory to say that although something is supposed to be true or to happen in the way stated, it may not in fact be true or happen in that way.
band theory: a theory of the electrical properties of metals, semiconductors, and insulators based on energy bands
Bohr theory: a theory of atomic structure that explains the spectrum of hydrogen atoms. It assumes that the electron orbiting around the nucleus can exist only in certain energy states, a jump from one state to another being accompanied by the emission or absorption of a quantum of radiation
game theory: mathematical theory concerned with the optimum choice of strategy in situations involving a conflict of interest
germ theory: the theory that all infectious diseases are caused by microorganisms
set theory: the branch of mathematics concerned with the properties and interrelationships of sets
wave theory: the theory proposed by Huygens that light is transmitted by waves
atomic theory: any theory in which matter is regarded as consisting of atoms, esp that proposed by John Dalton postulating that elements are composed of atoms that can combine in definite proportions to form compounds
auteur theory: the theory that creative directors are the major force in film-making
chaos theory: a theory, applied in various branches of science, that apparently random phenomena have underlying order
domino theory: a foreign policy theory speculating that a political event in one nation will cause similar events in neighbouring nations
field theory: a theory in which the basic quantities are physical fields
formal theory: an uninterpreted symbolic system whose syntax is precisely defined, and on which a relation of deducibility is defined in purely syntactic terms; a logistic system
Galois theory: the theory applying group theory to solving algebraic equations
games theory: mathematical theory concerned with the optimum choice of strategy in situations involving a conflict of interest
gauge theory: a type of theory of elementary particles designed to explain the strong, weak, and electromagnetic interactions in terms of exchange of virtual particles
graph theory: the branch of mathematics dealing with linear graphs
group theory: the branch of algebra that deals with mathematical groups
model theory: the branch of logic that deals with the properties of models ; the semantic study of formal systems
number theory: the study of integers, their properties, and the relationship between integers
proof theory: the branch of logic that studies the syntactic properties of formal theories, esp the syntactic characterization of deductive validity
string theory: a branch of theoretical physics
theory-laden: (of an expression ) capable of being understood only within the context of a specific theory, as for example superego, which requires the apparatus of Freudian theory in explanation
automata theory: the formal study of the power of computation of abstract machines
decision theory: the study of strategies for decision-making under conditions of uncertainty in such a way as to maximize the expected utility
economic theory: The theory of a practical subject or skill is the set of rules and principles that form the basis of it.

literary theory: the systematic analysis and study of literature using general principles
Marxist theory: A theory is a formal idea or set of ideas that is intended to explain something.
quantity theory: a theory stating that the general price level varies directly with the quantity of money in circulation and the velocity with which it is circulated, and inversely with the volume of production expressed by the total number of money transactions
