# What are escape characters to search for e.g. "p >> N"?

How can I search for e.g. "p >> N" -- are there escape characters, "p\>\> N" ?

• I don't know the answer, but would like to point out that expressions like this are likely to be marked up in $\TeX$ and therefore would not match the special characters anyway.

• Plus most formulas has some "verbalization" under which it is a better idea to look -- for instance large p small n for $p\gg N$.

• In what sense do you want to search for this? We do have a tag for underdetermined, which we use for "p>>n". Oct 26, 2012 at 18:36
