You can find several suitable queries in data explorer or create your own query. (Even for users who do not know much about SQL, it's not that difficult to look up basic info on the database schema and then try to modify the existing queries.) Some queries for finding comments by User1 on posts by User2: Comments left by a user on your posts taken from ...

As Lucia linked in the comments above, the question you're looking for is available at How $a+b$ can grow when $a!b! \mid n!$. That user, and some related ones, were deleting for abusing the voting system.

This is doable with the existing search. Tags are indicated by square brackets, and a - sign indicates that the term which follows should not be present in the search results. Searching for "topology -[ag.algebraic-geometry]" (without the quotes) finds all questions containing the word "topology" and lacking the tag ag.algebraic-geometry. Incidentally, to ...

The built-in search only searches in posts (questions and answers), so you will not find comments using that. One method which is reasonable is using Google with restricting to this site. For example: proportionality site:mathoverflow.net. This searches both in posts and in comments. Another reasonable possibility is to use data explorer. You can create ...

You can find various search modifiers in the help center. Or simply by clicking on "Advanced Search Tips" after you search for something. Specifically, to find posts by a specific user you can user user:userid. And to find your own posts you can use user:mine or user:me. Notice that if you go to some user's profile page, the search query user:userid is ...

I think I see why. Note that the Google Link for the "Difference Sets" question showed that it was "edited 8 mins ago, asked 14 mins ago". This means that the last time Google crawled that question was in the 90 minute period between when the question was posed and when you provided an answer. In other words, Google didn't know you posted an answer, and ...

I am the creator of Approach0 (https://approach0.xyz), a math-aware search engine. Approach0 is currently only indexing Math StackExchange data, however, I am considering to add MathOverflow to Approach0. I think this is a good opportunity for posting a survey here. Please give Approach0 a try and tell me to which degree do you think it can be helpful to ...

It is kind of easy to add suggestions how to search post fact, after Todd Trimble already found that the question is this one: Random rings linked into one component?. Still, I'm tempted to add a little bit of advice about searching of your own posts using the internal search engine. There is a operator user:userid which restrict the search to posts of a ...

Here is how I do it. I click on my own little user icon at the top of the page and this puts my own userid into the search field where I can then add keywords I want to search for.

It seems that uniquation searches both on MathOverflow and Mathematics Stackexchange (and also other sites). Among example queries, there is search for $F_{n+1}=F_n+F_{n-1}$. You can see that among the results there are posts from Math.SE and posts from MathOverflow. As I am not familiar with this search engine, I am making this post CW - feel free to edit ...

Try this perhaps, and linearity of expectation will be the second answer (at 70 votes currently).

As far as searching deleted questions is concerned, the site only enables you somewhat limited ability to search for your own deleted posts. I think it is quite well summarized in the answer here: Can I somewhere see my own deleted questions? I will also add that highly upvoted questions with highly upvoted answers are deleted very rarely if at all. (At ...

A few years ago we developed the search engine SearchOnMath, in order to search for mathematical formulas. Recently our tool has indexed both: Mathematics and MathOverflow. Currently, SearchOnMath is the mathematical search engine with the largest number of indexed sites (including Wikipedia, Wolfram MathWorld, among others ...). The following video ...

SearchOnMath searches Math World and Wikipedia. They say you can contact them to get a site added.

Here are some further test cases. Some of them return nothing of interest from MSE. This may be because there really isn't anything relevant there. The Eilenberg-MacLane space $K(\mathbb{Z},3)$: link The ring spectrum $MO\langle 8\rangle$, entered with angle brackets or less than/greater than signs. The classifying space $BGL_n(R)$: link (The first result ...

As far as I know, in situations like this - when you deleted the post yourself, all you have to do is to check the tab with delete votes in your profile. If you do not have too deleted your posts too often, you'll see only a few posts there, so this might be a reasonable way to find the one you're interested in. This tab contains both self-deletions and ...

The search minimal hausdorff gives a top hit.

After performing a search, select "newest" tab (or in the reverse order) - this will work. Thats what you'll get if you'll search in this way for questions tagged with filters and then (or before) select the "newest" tab.
