<h3 class="section">21.8 Maximum and Minimum values</h3>

<p>The following functions find the maximum and minimum values of a
dataset (or their indices).  If the data contains <code>NaN</code>s then a
<code>NaN</code> will be returned, since the maximum or minimum value is
undefined.  For functions which return an index, the location of the
first <code>NaN</code> in the array is returned.

<dt><a name="index-gsl_005fstats_005fmax"></a>Function: <em>double</em> <strong>gsl_stats_max</strong> <em>(const double <var>data</var>[], size_t <var>stride</var>, size_t <var>n</var>)</em></dt>
<dd><p>This function returns the maximum value in <var>data</var>, a dataset of
length <var>n</var> with stride <var>stride</var>.  The maximum value is defined
as the value of the element <em>x_i</em> which satisfies <em>x_i &gt;= x_j</em> for all <em>j</em>.
</p>
<p>If you want instead to find the element with the largest absolute
magnitude you will need to apply <code>fabs</code> or <code>abs</code> to your data
before calling this function.

<dd><p>This function returns the minimum value in <var>data</var>, a dataset of

defined as the value of the element <em>x_i</em> which satisfies 
<em>x_i &gt;= x_j</em> for all <em>j</em>.  When there are several equal maximum
elements then the first one is chosen.
