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 Problem with \widehat in the package yhmath
I too don't get any misplaced parenthesis. I can reproduce the output only by adding \mathchar"300 before the closing $. Try updating yhmath.

comment No hyphenation of long words in narrow boxes
@ThomasF.Sturm minipage acts on \everypar, unfortunately. A first approximation is \everypar=\expandafter{\the\everypar\everypar{\hspace{0pt}}\hspace{0pt}} (but this is only for minipage.
