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

    $\begingroup$ 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. $\endgroup$

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

Have you tried searching the LaTeX breakdown?

Honestly, you may be better off using Google/Bing for this type of search. Lucene doesn't really handle TeX well, in my admittedly limited experience.
