Different to which department? At which universities?
Should the estimator be consistent or maximum-likelihood
or what :-)? -- Uwe
p.s.: TeX is used whenever many formulas are used,
so in all sciences (plus or including mathematics and
mathematical logics) and in engineering, even in analytical
philosophy, many or most journals and publishers prefer or
require providing TeX source files of submittings in these
areas; moreover TeX is widely used in philology and critical
editions (see John Burt's article in TUGboat 22) where
(well-known) commercial applications just don't provide
required (traditional) symbols or formatting facilities -- cf.
the "topical" version of the CTAN Catalogue.
