I am a Fourth Year Undergraduate, with a double major in Pure and Applied math, at the University of Calgary.

My interests are mainly in numerical analysis, more specifically of Stochastic Differential Equations.

comment What other math fields wouldn't require learning a huge amount of material in advance?
In my experience, most anything in linear algebra. For example, many data compression techniques require a relatively elementary knowledge of linear algebra, yet are very interesting, and have powerful results. Many such techniques still have open questions regarding the limits of simplifying their computational complexity.

comment Why do some people use $+\infty$ instead of $\infty$?
Good question, I have also wondered why. To my knowledge its just added for emphasis.

comment How are more difficult proofs discovered?
It varies wildly by subject, and who discovered them. For example, Gauss was famous for proving wildly hard theorems, but giving as few details as possible. In any case, the truth is most proofs when they are first discovered probably caused someone much more pain, and were not as straight forward than is apparent when you see it in an article or textbook.
