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 Manual linebreak with justification but without empty line afterwards
{{\parfillskip0pt\par}} can be a useful for a manual solution as it doesn't need bracing the paragraph.

comment Bold math using bm within breqn results in compilation error
@Paul Using \bm{a+b=c} is wrong to begin with; \bm should be used with a single symbol in its argument; it sometimes kind of works with more symbols, but it's definitely not recommendable.
