# maxabs(A,dims)

maxabs(A, dims)

Compute the maximum absolute values over given dimensions.

## Examples

julia> maxabs([-3,-11])
11
julia> maxabs([3,11])
11
1. Find the maximum absolute value in an array:

julia> arr = [3, -5, 2, -9, 7];
julia> maxabs(arr)
9

This example calculates the maximum absolute value in the array arr.

2. Compute the maximum absolute value in a range:

julia> range = -10:10;
julia> maxabs(range)
10

It determines the maximum absolute value in the given range.

3. Find the maximum absolute value in a vector of complex numbers:
julia> complex_nums = [2 + 3im, -4 - 6im, 5 + 1im];
julia> maxabs(complex_nums)
8.48528137423857

Here, it calculates the maximum absolute value among the complex numbers.

Common mistake example:

julia> maxabs("hello")
ERROR: MethodError: no method matching maxabs(::String)

In this example, the input type is not compatible with the maxabs function. It can only be used with collections of numeric values. Make sure to provide a valid collection of values to compute the maximum absolute value.
