#### Max

Function: max (<x_1>, ..., <x_n>) Return a simplified value for the maximum of the expressions <x_1> through <x_n>. When `get (trylevel, maxmin)`, is 2 or greater, `max` uses the simplification `max (e, -e) --> |e|`. When `get (trylevel, maxmin)` is 3 or greater, <max> tries to eliminate expressions that are between two other arguments; for example, `max (x, 2*x, 3*x) --> max (x, 3*x)`. To set the value of `trylevel` to 2, use `put (trylevel, 2, maxmin)`.

There are also some inexact matches for `max`. Try `?? max` to see them.
