Spires search

To use this feature, choose Search -> Web search, and the search interface will appear in the side pane. Select Spires in the dropdown menu.

The spires search function merely passes your search queries onto the Spires web search, so you should build your queries in the same way, except omitting the find or fin command. This help page will only give a brief introduction to the search queries. More extensive help on searching Spires can be found on the page http://www.slac.stanford.edu/spires/hep/help/index.shtml.

The following list shows some of the field indicators that can be used:
