Fundamental Operations for Source Terms

I have a question pertaining to operations in openFOAM. I have experienced some compiling errors when trying to modify UEqn.H according to another thread I started: Adding porosity to UEqn.H in porousInterFoam
This question comes about as I would like to simply multiply or divide, as was the case in the thread above, however the operator "/" was not valid.
I see in another thread, bare with me here : InterFoam: add a source term in alpha eq.
that the multiplication operation "..U*grad(alpha)..." was defined as: "fvc::grad(alpha1) & Ug"
// Divergence term is handled explicitly to be
// consistent with the explicit transport solution
fvc::grad(alpha1) & Ug
I know this is trivial but Im having difficulties finding a list of "operators" such as * and /. Why is multiplication:* represented as & ?
Could someone kindly provide an explanation for whats happening here and provide some information for what to di in scenarios like this?

This link is pretty great for this kind of problem:
Pretty sure it's accurate, at least it used to be. Haven't checked recently but doubt either it or OF have changed their operators.
