I'm a mathematician working in algebra. I've been using TeX since 1987, but couldn't write my Ph.D. thesis with it. Sob!

I teach LaTeX at my university, besides the mathematics courses. I'm the author of some LaTeX packages and even of one Plain TeX package. At my site it's possible to download my book on LaTeX programming (in Italian, sorry).

Here's my motto for TeX.SX:

Pronto prontissimo son come il fulmine: sono il factotum della città. (From "Il barbiere di Siviglia", music by Gioachino Rossini, libretto by Cesare Sterbini.)

comment theindex + hyperlink page problem
If the problem is with the references, why is the title about the index? If I compile your example document, I get “References” both in the table of contents and in the bookmarks.

comment Changing the way \over is defined
This would be a bad idea even if it were doable. Your code will not be more readable. However, you would need ${1/2}+{1/3}={5/6}$ anyway, because of how \over works.

comment Dos and Don'ts of \countdef\mycount=<number> and \newcount vs \newcounter{} in LaTeX
Doing \countdef\mycount=81 is a really bad idea also in Plain TeX.

comment Defining #1^#2 as \overset{#2}{#1} for some characters
@Kasper No, it doesn't look back in those cases. But \mathop{+}^{\mathbb{R}} would give wrong spacing around the symbol.

I'd do it slightly differently, but not in an essential way. You need no braces in \secdef\my@section\latex@section.

comment New map file with LaTeX
I guess you have to load the map file in the dvips step, rather than in the latex step. But why not installing the cbgreek font package?

comment Phantomsection hyperlink problem
@blue I'm thinking you're using the wrong approach (and I already told you) with multiple indices. Anyway, your last comment is too vague. Please, if this answer works for the question you posed, write another question with the specific problem you're facing now.
