Hints for more fulfilling searches

Boolean Operators
'AND', 'AND NOT', and 'OR'
Metacharacters
The bad news: In general, punctation and other non-alphanumeric characters are not indexed and cannot currently be searched for. Currently some interesting characters like (,), and = are not searchable. Regrettably, this means that one cannot search for SU(3) or c=1 at this time (but searching for 'c' AND '1' will give hits on 'c = 1').
The good news: The characters ^,_,{,},+, and - are indexed. For example, searching for K^+ or nu_e will work - be aware that authors are not always consistent in how super- and subscripts are presented.
Non-indexed characters are stripped out from the search query.
Stemming
Most fields stem words automatically (searching for superconductors will match superconducting)
Wild card truncation
Wild card (*) can only be used anywhere but at the beginning of a term (but see author examples below).
Grouping
Grouping can be done with parentheses
Binary Booleans are not associative - parentheses are mandatory if a field has multiple Booleans
First two fields are grouped together in form before third field is added in
Exact phrases
Use double quotes (") - Warning: can be slow (try AND instead)

@oristarA,

@oristarA,
I figure it's probably short for "suck up," eh, Oris. If ya aint knowin what that is, check out the "gunna show assholes the door" thread, eh?

In that case the search operator should be something like SU(56), I figure.
