# max

Largest element in array of `fi`

objects

## Description

returns the largest
elements along different dimensions of `M`

= max(`A`

)`fi`

array
`A`

.

If

`A`

is a vector,`max(A)`

returns the largest element in`A`

.If

`A`

is a matrix,`max(A)`

treats the columns of`A`

as vectors, returning a row vector containing the maximum element from each column.If

`A`

is a multidimensional array,`max`

operates along the first nonsingleton dimension and returns an array of maximum values.

## Examples

## Input Arguments

## Output Arguments

## Algorithms

When `A`

or `B`

is complex, the `max`

function returns the elements with the largest magnitude. If two magnitudes are equal,
then `max`

returns the first value. This behavior differs from how the
built-in `max`

function resolves ties between
complex numbers.
