Python | Pandas series.cummax () to find the cumulative maximum of a series

Pandas Series.cummax() is used to find the cumulative maximum of a series. At the cumulative maximum, the length of the returned series is the same as the input series, and each element is equal to the greater one between the current element and the previous element.

Syntax: Series.cummax (axis = None, skipna = True)

Parameters:
axis: 0 or ’index’ for row wise operation and 1 or ’columns ’for column wise operation.
skipna: Skips NaN addition for elements after the very next one if True.

Return type: Series

Example # 1:
This example creates a series from a Python list. The list also contains a Null value, and the skipna parameter remains the default, which is True.

# pandas module import

import pandas as pd 

  
# numpy module import

import numpy as np 

  
# list values ​​

values ​​ = [ 3 , 4 , np.nan, 7 , 2 , 0

  
# create a series from the list

series = pd.Series (values) 

  
# calling method

cummax = series.cummax () 

 
# display
cummax

Output:

 0 3.0 1 4.0 2 NaN 3 7.0 4 7.0 5 7.0 dtype: float64 

Explanation: Cummax — it is a comparison of the current value with the previous value. The first element is always the first of the caller.

 3 4 (4" 3) NaN (Since NaN cannot be compared to integer values) 7 (7" 4) 7 (7" 2) 7 (7" 0) 

Example # 2: saving skipna = False

This example creates a series in the same way as above example. But the skipna parameter remains False. Therefore, NULL values ​​will not be ignored and they will be compared each time they are found.

# pandas module import

import pandas as pd 

 
# numpy module import

import numpy as np 

 
# compiling a list of values ​​

values ​​ = [ 9 , 4 , 33 , np.nan, 0 , 1 , 76 , 5

 
# create a series from the list

series = pd.Series (values) 

 
# calling method

cummax = series.cummax (skipna = False

 
# display
cummax 

Exit:

 0 9.0 1 9.0 2 33.0 3 NaN 4 NaN 5 NaN 6 NaN 7 NaN dtype: float64 

Explanation: How and in the above example, the maximum current and previous values ​​were kept at each position until NaN appeared. Since NaN is NaN compared to anything, and skipna remains False, the cumulative maximum after it appears is NaN due to the comparison of all values ​​to NaN.
