_ (the underscore) is the placeholder for exactly one character.
% (the percent sign) is the placeholder for no, one or more than one character.
%% (two percent signs) is the placeholder for no, one or more than one character, but not for blank space (so that a search ends at word boundaries).

At the beginning and at the end, these placeholders are superfluous.

Johannes Noviomagus
Isagoge in Ptolomaei Phaenomena

Noviomagus was then professor of mathematics and Greek at the University of Cologne.
