    Hi All,'
    I remember there was a site where one could search using math symbols, like > , and Math terms. Anyone know what the name/address of that site is?
    Thanks.

    Are you asking about what LaTeX to use for various math symbols?
    If so, here are a couple that I use:

    http://www.artofproblemsolving.com/wiki/index.php/LaTeX:Symbols
    If I can't find what I'm looking for, I do a search in my browser for "latex <whatever>"

    No, I am looking for a search engine that allows for the use of Math symbols to do searches, so that, e.g., I can search for is e^ cosx harmonic , or I can use Latex to ask about L^p ( ##L^p ## ) spaces during the search.

    Just type the latex into Google?

    Doesn't work that well in my experience. I remember that there was a search engine like that, I just can't remember neither its name nor url.

    I think you may be looking for WolframAlpha:

    http://www.wolframalpha.com

    Try that. In any case, a very cool search engine for just about anything that is in any way quantifiable. You can lose hours at a time just messing around with it.
