Max Command

Max[ <List> ]
Returns the maximum of the numbers within the list.
Example: Max[{-2, 12, -23, 17, 15}] yields 17.
Note: If the input consists of non-numeric objects, then this command considers the numbers associated with those objects. If you have a list of segments for example, the command Max[ <List> ] will yield the maximum segment length.
Max[ <Interval> ]
Returns the upper bound of the interval.
Example: Max[2 < x < 3] yields 3.
Note: Open and closed intervals are treated the same.
Max[ <Number>, <Number> ]
Returns the maximum of the two given numbers.
Example: Max[12, 15] yields 15.
Max[ <Function>, <Start x-Value>, <End x-Value> ]
Calculates the maximum point of the function in the given interval. The function should be continuous and have only one local maximum point in the interval.
Note: For polynomials you should use the Extremum Command.
Example: Max[exp(x)x^2,-3,-1] creates the point (-2, 0.54134).
Max[<List of Data>, <List of Frequencies> ]
Returns the maximum of the list of data with corresponding frequencies.
Example: Max[{1, 2, 3, 4, 5}, {5, 3, 4, 2, 0}] yields 4, the highest number of the list whose frequency is greater than 0.
