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.)

You should use the special keywords and others, so author={Wolf, K. and others},

@StefanMüller The user documentation is not really clear about this.

comment Per mille symbol in classicthesis style
Welcome to TeX.SX! Rather than a classicthesis problem it's a font problem. The style uses the mathpazo package that sets the main font to Palatino. Try loading also the textcomp package. Note also that you should say \text{\textperthousand}, in order to avoid warning messages.

Deprecated commands such as \it or \cal are not guaranteed to be in all classes.

Also the \renewcommand{\cftsecfont}{\scshape} should be in the preamble.

comment Change Section titles to Small Caps only in ToC
Note that \sc has been deprecated since 1994; prefer \scshape instead.

comment How to redefine \hat{H} as \hat{\cal H}?
I should note that \cal has been deprecated since 1994 and that \mathcal{H} is the preferred syntax.

comment How to redefine \hat{H} as \hat{\cal H}?
Shouldn't \cal H be \mathcal{H}?
