The search engine

To use the search function, click on the Search in the global links panel in the top right-hand corner of each page.

How do I find what I'm looking for?

Too many hits are not always helpful. Narrow your search down by entering several search words simultaneously.

The search engine allows search words to be combined with the search operators "+" (logical "and"), "|" (logical "or") or "!" (logical "not"). You can also carry out searches using brackets. If you enter several search words without operators, all words entered will be sought.

What if I don't find anything?

Try the wildcard "*". For example, if you enter "commu*", the search engine finds all words that start with "commu", such as "commutator" or "commutative". However, this only happens at the end of the search pattern.

Upper and lower case and the German "Umlaut"

No distinction is made between upper and lower case and the German "Umlaut" is supported. Write the Umlaut (and ß) in the normal way (ÄÖÜäöüß). Umlaut forms written as ae, oe or ue do not usually produce the desired results.

Can I search for sequences of words or entire sentences?

Yes, you can. Use inverted commas to mark the beginning and end of sequences of words.

How is the order of search results determined?

The program tries to rate hits. The "best" hits appear at the top of the list.
