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:

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.

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:

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.
