    Note: The class taught 4/20/2021 by Brian Larner demonstrated several advanced search queries: CTB=(.gamma. ray) (for both
    γand gamma); relevancy score weightings {[1]CTB=(wind turbine) AND [20]CTB=(nacelle)}; stacked searches (blocks up-to 25 command lines ending by colon (except last one) which could include combination of line numbers inside the block); search for presence or absence of data in specific field {Opposition: PA=(basf) AND OP=(^" "^) [the same as PA=(basf) NOT OP=(^""^)]; Citing patents: DCG=(^" "^) AND CO=(basf)}; run of two simultaneous Smart searches in two different parts of query to ensure AND operators between terms {Smart Search-Topic: “SSTO=(keywords to be extracted 1) AND SSTO=(keywords to be extracted 2)”}, etc.
