DESCRIPTION:I will address the question "What do historians of mathematics
do?" by turning to another: "What is algebra?" In answering this second
question\, and surveying the way that the answer changes as we move throug
h the centuries\, I will highlight some of the problems that face historia
ns of mathematics when it comes to interpreting historical mathematics\, a
nd give a flavour of what it means to study the history of mathematics.\nS
