I thought theory of computation was a really hard area for me to think about. But I haven't taken that many math classes. I'd like to take more classes like that though--classes that cause me to warp my mind. What areas did you guys find to be the most difficult?

I agree with mixedmath. The question is too broad and might involve people giving their preference which naturally cannot be backed up by any reference work. I suggest the OP reads the FAQ and about help vampires. For example when the OP asks what we found to be most difficulty, difficulty can hardly be standardized and quantified not to mention difficulty depends on numerous factors: background, willingness to work hard, patience with problems,... This question requires reformulation, at least. –  nt.bas Sep 10 '12 at 7:05

It is not a question anyone can answer for you.

Look at this list of math courses, and look into each one and decide what floats your boat.
