maximum(A, dims)

Compute the maximum value of an array over the given dimensions.


  1. Find the maximum value in an array:

    julia> arr = [5, 10, 2, 8, 3];
    julia> maximum(arr)

    This example finds the largest element in the array arr.

  2. Find the maximum value in a range of numbers:

    julia> maximum(1:10)

    It returns the maximum value in the range of numbers from 1 to 10.

  3. Find the maximum value in a vector of strings:
    julia> words = ["apple", "banana", "orange", "grape"];
    julia> maximum(words)

    It returns the string with the highest lexicographic order from the vector words.

Common mistake example:

julia> maximum([])
ERROR: ArgumentError: collection must be non-empty

In this example, an empty collection is passed to maximum, which raises an ArgumentError. Ensure that the collection passed as an argument is non-empty to avoid this error.
