STAR Laboratory's Publications Search Help
This form lets you find documents in the STAR Publications database by searching BibTeX files for a given pattern. The pattern is compared against each field of the BibTeX file. You can restrict your search to a single field by selecting one from the first menu above.
The set of BibTeX files that you search through is restricted by your choice of Document Type. You can also choose the format of the result. Standard Form (the default) shows all components of the BibTeX file. Compact Form eliminates the abstract, keywords, and annotations. And the BibTeX Form.
When there is a printable version of the document, the title becomes a link to the printable version.
Entering a set of words separated by blanks as your search pattern finds those documents that contain at least one BibTeX field (author, title, etc.) that matches all of the words. For example:
Note that partial word matches are allowed, and that matches are not sensitive to case, so reco above matches words like recognition, Recognition, and recognizer.
You can also separate the words by or to find documents that contain at least one line that matches at least one of the words. For example:
Since the search is done on each BibTeX field, it's possible to restrict your search pattern to a certain field by putting the field name as the first word in your search string. For example:
author julia finds all documents by author julia.
author jul neumeyer finds all documents containing author names matching both jul and neumeyer.
title optimiz or line finds all documents whose title matches either optimiz or line.
keyword speaker pronunciation finds all documents containing keywords matching both speaker and pronunciation.
Document Type Selection
The first pull-down menu in the Search Form lets you restrict your search to a particular class of documents (such as Papers, Technical Notes, or Brochures) if you so desire. By default, your search will be carried out over all document classes.
Search Syntax Selection
The examples above used a "simple syntax" for the search pattern (words are either separated by blanks or by or).
You can use the full power of the underlying search engine, called Glimpse, by surrounding your search pattern by double quotes. The syntax for Glimpse searches is the same as that of "agrep".
