Is the branch of science that deals with the structure of matter and how the fundamental constituents of the universe interact.


Physics uses mathematics to organise and formulate experimental results.
From those results, precise or estimated solutions are obtained,
quantitative results from which new predictions can be made
and experimentally confirmed or negated. 

The results from physics experiments are numerical data, with their units of measure and estimates of the errors in the measurements. Technologies based on mathematics, like computation have made computational physics an active area of research.

The distinction between mathematics and physics is clear-cut, but not always obvious, especially in mathematical physics.
Ontology is a prerequisite for physics, but not for mathematics.
It means physics is ultimately concerned with descriptions of the real world, while mathematics is concerned with abstract patterns, even beyond the real world. 

Thus physics statements are synthetic, while mathematical statements are analytic. Mathematics contains hypotheses, while physics contains theories. Mathematics statements have to be only logically true, while predictions of physics statements must match observed and experimental data.
