The first expression after looking it up states that the this is the partial derivative of a wave function with respect to t, holding the x constant. Hence, I presume that he subscript here means that variable is held constant.

Seems likely...

The second expression is the left side of one of the Fresnel equations; discussing the interaction of an electromagnetic field and the interface of two different mediums. I think the subscript means that the amplitude of the electric field is perpendicular to the interface. Not sure if more could be implied by this particular subscript.

Does that sound right?
