        Subject: software and mathematics

Perhaps someone here can help me out with thoughts or references to work
on the question of software and mathematics. This is an old question, as
you may know, but to my knowledge it has always been pursued from the
perspective of modern Western mathematics. Has anyone to your knowledge
raised the question with ethnomathematics in mind? Has anyone asked what
kind of maths software might be, allowing maths to be any kind of
practical reckoning, symbolic or numerical?

I may be asking the wrong question, so a course-correction is perhaps
what I need. Any comments?

Many thanks.
