numpy.recarray.max() returns the maximum of an array of records or the maximum along the axis.
numpy.recarray.max (axis = None, out = None, keepdims = False)
axis: [None or int or tuple of ints, optional] Axis or axes along which to operate. By default, flattened input is used.
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.
keepdims: [bool, optional] If this is set to True, the axes which are reduced are left in the result as dimensions with size one. With this option, the result will broadcast correctly against the input array.
Return: [ndarray or scalar] Maximum of record array. If axis is None, the result is a scalar value. If axis is given, the result is an array of dimension arr.ndim – 1.
