SQL instructions enclosed in "/*! ... */"

I use MySQLDump to transfer a database.
In the output file I can see lines like :
/*!50003 CREATE*/ /*!50017 DEFINER=`user`@`localhost`*/ /*!50003 TRIGGER `ai_stats_cat` AFTER INSERT ON `stats_cat`

Il searched the doc for this (strange) syntax but couldn't find anything (except that /* */ are comment delimiters. But in fact these commands are executed when I use this file as input for mysql).

Could anyone please give me a link to an explanation about these /*! ? (ever tried to google "/*!" ? )

Thank you
