What is a hypothesis?

What is a hypothesis? Here is my definition:


A hypothesis is a representation to be investigated


What's the difference between a hypothesis and a theory? Although these two concepts are very similar, I believe there is a slight difference in emphasis. While a hypothesis implies future investigation and experimentation, a theory does not imply such testing.
