All laws of physics we know are actually mathematical laws (more accurately-identies). So, all things in Universe go exactly as math prescribes (for example, if a charge moves, mathematical consequence due to relativity is what we call a magnetic field and if a charge accelerates - then the electric field mathematically becomes what we call a photon.)

So math is not just one of the many possible ways to describe reality (as some people may say), but it is vice versa -the reality is such (and only such) due to math.

Of course, if we do not account for all competing processes when we try to describe/predict something, then due to our ignorance we may get incomplete or incorrect result.
