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 How can I modify abbrvnat.bst to have unsorted reference list using natbib?
How is a reader supposed to find an abbreviation in a long list of references? With an unsorted style with numeric references it's easy; with abbreviations it requires to go through the entire list each time.

comment \makeatletter explained
The \makeatletter command is needed because you want to modify the behavior of \beamer@@frametitle; it has no particular meaning; the second linked question explains why you need it.

Loading minted before polyglossia seems to help.

comment hf-tikz.sty package installation on mountain lion
@Madu The ~ refers to your Home. So something like /Users/Madu/Library/texmf. However, hf-tikz is in TeX Live, now. If you run TeX Live Utility and update the distribution, you'll get it without needing manual installation.

Put it in ~/Library/texmf/tex/latex/hf-tikz/ (creating the necessary folders).

comment How can the thesis structure be defined for PDF generation?
You have the \include and \input commands reversed. If you really want to profit of \include, use it for chapter files, not for the big "catch it all" file.

comment How to get autobreaking with sequential tables
@DavidCarlisle The reference to a non-stretching space is not in the main question, where it's unclear what the aim is regarding justification. Let's wait for the OP to clarify.
