Theorem Lists

Wikipedia's List of Theorems has over 500 theorems. In addition there are long lists of Lemmas and Inequalities.

Noel Vaillant's Probability Tutorials can be indexed by the 140 theorems contained therein.

Nathan W. Kahl has posted a list Top 100 Theorems, attributed to Paul and Jack Abad but enhanced with many well-chosen links. The site appears now to exist only as an archive but the idea has been given new life by Freek Wiedijk whose list of formalised theorems I believe to be an important and forward-looking resource. A related effort (on an industrial scale!) is the Archive of Formal Proofs.

math.stackexchange got a very rich response to "What are the most 'overpowered' theorems?"

Neil Sloane's Online Encylopedia of Integer Sequences is a virtual theorem list. Not all it's >260K entries correspond to proved assertions but mostly there's at least one bona fide theorem involved somewhere! By the way, Quanta Magazine has an excellent interview with Sloane.

Theorem of the Day by David Simmons-Duffin and Matt Gline offers infinitely many theorems and is the perfect satirical antidote to this site...

...while Ari Nieh's Sarong Theorem Archive (now hosted at Calgary by David Roe) is the perfect sartorial complement!

Another site offering infinitely many theorems ... named after you!

In case you are wondering about where the proofs are ... they are here!

A list of cameo appearances by theorems in the arts (thanks to Anthony Knapp for prompting this).
