max

max, contextual keyword in read statement

The option max can be specified after the table name in a read statement to indicate the inclusive maximum number of lines for the table. If the table size exceeds the threshold, then the script fails.

read "/sample/products.csv" as Products max 10 with
  Product : text

show table "My Products" a1b3 with Products.Product

The option max offers the possibility to specify two thresholds. The lower inclusive threshold indicates the maximum number of lines that does not generate a warning. The higher inclusive threshold indicates the maximum number of lines that does not generate an error.

read "/sample/products.csv" as Products max 2 .. 10 with
  Product : text

show table "My Products" a1b3 with Products.Product

The warning threshold is intended to help avoid “slowly creeping” situations and detect that a table has grown too much before it becomes a blocking problem.

max, contextual keyword in table statement

The option max can be specified after the table name in a table assignement to indicate the inclusive maximum number of lines for the table. If the table size exceeds the threshold, then the script fails.

table T max 10 = with
  [| as A |]
  [| "b"  |]
  [| "c"  |]
  [| "a"  |]

show table "" with T.A

The option max offers the possibility to specify two thresholds. The lower inclusive threshold indicates the maximum number of lines that does not generate a warning. The higher inclusive threshold indicates the maximum number of lines that does not generate an error.

table T max 2 .. 10 = with
  [| as A |]
  [| "b"  |]
  [| "c"  |]
  [| "a"  |]

show table "" with T.A

The warning threshold is intended to help avoid “slowly creeping” situations and detect that a table has grown too much before it becomes a blocking problem.

max(T.A : ‘a) 🡒 ‘a, autodiff aggregator

Returns the maximal value for the group according ot the canonical ordering for the data type. All the ordered data types are supported.

table T = with
  [| as A, as B, as C |]
  [| "b", 2, date(2020, 1, 8)  |]
  [| "c", 1, date(2010, 9, 1)  |]
  [| "a", 0, date(2019, 12, 1) |]

show summary "" a1b4 with
  max(T.A)
  max(dirac(T.B))
  max(T.C)

On empty groups, the default value for the data type is returned.

max(variadic n : number) -> number, const autodiff pure function

Returns the largest of the list of numbers. The function is variadic.

show scalar "" a1 with max(1, 2)
show scalar "" b1 with max(2, 3, 4)
show scalar "" c1 with max(3, 4, 5, 6)

max(r : ranvar, n : number) -> ranvar, pure function

Same as max(r, dirac(n)), see below. The number n must be an integer or the function fails.

max(n : number, r : ranvar) -> ranvar, pure function

Same as max(dirac(n), r), see below. The number n must be an integer or the function fails.

max(r : ranvar, …) -> ranvar, pure function

If $X_1$ and $X_2$ are two independent random variables over $\mathbb{Z}$ represeented by the ranvars r1 and r2 respectively, returns $\max(X_1, X_2)$. The function is variadic.

a = poisson(1)
b = poisson(2)
show scalar "a" a1c3 with a
show scalar "b" a4c6 with b
show scalar "max(a, b)" a7c9 with max(a, b)
show scalar "max(a, b, b)" a10c12 with max(a, a, b)

Beware, when ranvars are involved, max(r1, r2) is not identical to max(r1, r2, r2).

max(z : zedfunc, n : number) -> zedfunc, pure function

Same as max(z, constant(n)), see below. The number n must be an integer or the function fails.

max(n : number, z : zedfunc) -> zedfunc, pure function

Same as max(constant(n), z), see below. The number n must be an integer or the function fails.

max(variadic z : zedfunc) -> zedfunc, pure function

If $f$ and $g$ are two functions $\mathbb{Z} \to \mathbb{R}$ represented by the zedfuncs z1 and z2 respective, returns $x \mapsto f(x) + g(x)$.

a = constant(0)s
b = constant(10) - linear(1) * linear(1)
show scalar "a" a1c3 with a
show scalar "b" a4c6 with b
show scalar "max(a, b)" a7c9 with max(a, b)
show scalar "max(a, b, b)" a10c12 with max(a, a, b)
