It compares the two arrays and returns a new array containing the element-wise maximums. If one of the compared elements is NaN, then that element is returned. If both elements are NaN, then the first is returned.
Syntax: numpy.maximum (arr1, arr2, /, out = None, *, where = True, casting = `same_kind`, order = `K`, dtype = None, ufunc `maximum`)
arr1: [ array_like] Input array.
arr2: [array_like] Input array.
out: [ndarray, optional] A location into which the result is stored .
– & gt; If provided, it must have a shape that the inputs broadcast to.
– & gt; If not provided or None, a freshly-allocated array is returned.
** kwargs: allows you to pass keyword variable length of argument to a function. It is used when we want to handle named argument in a function.
where: [array_like, optional] True value means to calculate the universal functions (ufunc) at that position, False value means to leave the value in the output alone.
Return: [ndarray or scalar] Result.
The maximum of arr1 and arr2, element-wise. This is a scalar if both arr1 and arr2 are scalars.
Code # 1: Work
Input number1: 10 Input number2: 21 maximum of 10 and 21: 21
Code # 2:
Input array1: [2, 8, 125] Input array2: [3, 3, 15] Output array after selecting maximum: [3 8 125]
Code # 3:
Input array1: [nan, 0, nan] Input array2: [nan, nan, 0] Output array after selecting maximum: [nan nan nan]
