confusion over these words

Posted by Keth September 12, 2012 in the Group I Have a Question.

can 科学家 mean mathematician, scientist,physicist,chemist,biologist?

In the dictionary it just says 科学  Scientist . So is it incorrect to say 科学家。

Is 数学家 a term exculsively used for mathematician ? or is it interchangable with 科学家?
