The DisMaxRequestHandler (aka : DisMax) was designed to process simple user entered phrases (without heavy syntax) and search for the individual words across several fields using different weighting (boosts) based on the significance of each field. Additional options let you influence the score based on rules specific to each use case (independent of user input)

As of Solr 1.3, the DisMaxRequestHandler is the exact same thing as the SearchHandler with the default query parser set to the DisMaxQParserPlugin (defType=dismax).
