Maximum elements of an array

returns the maximum elements of an array.`M`

= max(`A`

)

If

`A`

is a vector, then`max(A)`

returns the maximum of`A`

.If

`A`

is a matrix, then`max(A)`

is a row vector containing the maximum value of each column.If

`A`

is a multidimensional array, then`max(A)`

operates along the first array dimension whose size does not equal`1`

, treating the elements as vectors. The size of this dimension becomes`1`

while the sizes of all other dimensions remain the same. If`A`

is an empty array whose first dimension has zero length, then`max(A)`

returns an empty array with the same size as`A`

.
