yes - i am referring to solr cores.

i was hoping to find a more academic explanation to a few of my questions. 
for example - is a lucene search done as a "full table scan" and therefore
linear in performance or O(n)??

knowing things like this - would help me make better core/index design
decisions (along with other factors - of course).
