Statistics and probability and math in general are of course used in
phyics, as well as chemistry, manufacturing engineering, and many,
many other fields.

However, they are concidered to be separate fields of study and have
separate USENET newsgroups for their discussion.

Have you ever wondered why universities have separate physics, chemistry,
math, and engineering departments?
