I want to take a real analysis course, and eventaully an analysis course. I would really like to become fluent in the language of the calculus as well as proofs, almost to make as a second language. (I hear it can take years to master it but is rewarding). I am a physics major so it could be tough going from applied to pure. However, I do not have much expierence in proofs. How can I resolve this? Show I buy a book on logic? I have "how to prove it," by Daniel J Velleman. It is just hard getting motivated reading it as aposed to a Physics read. A thing I notice when I look at a proof sometimes is that complicated notation/symbols are used to express simple ideas. There are tons of subtlies that must be taken into account. This gets on my nerves but I can grip through it. I hear it is hard getting started in proofs, but it gets easier, is this true? Advice would be appreicated. By the way I am done with all three semesters of Calc, and will be taking diff eq, and linear algebra.
