MAX Largest component.
For vectors, MAX(X) is the largest element in X. For matrices,
MAX(X) is a row vector containing the maximum element from each
column. For N-D arrays, MAX(X) operates along the first
non-singleton dimension.
[Y,I] = MAX(X) returns the indices of the maximum values in vector I.
If the values along the first non-singleton dimension contain more
than one maximal element, the index of the first one is returned.
MAX(X,Y) returns an array the same size as X and Y with the
largest elements taken from X or Y. Either one can be a scalar.
[Y,I] = MAX(X,[],DIM) operates along the dimension DIM.
When complex, the magnitude MAX(ABS(X)) is used, and the angle
ANGLE(X) is ignored. NaN's are ignored when computing the maximum.
Example: If X = [2 8 4 then max(X,[],1) is [7 8 9],
7 3 9]
max(X,[],2) is [8 and max(X,5) is [5 8 5
9], 7 5 9].
