argMax: Arg Max: Extract a subscript corresponding component is a max

Description Usage Arguments Details Value Examples

View source: R/argMax.R

Description

The non-negative valued function of a vector, which returns a subscript whose component is the maximal component of the vector.

If the maximal component is not unique, then the lowest is chosen

Namely, for an arbitrary vector,

argMax(vector) = i

if and only if i is the smallest number such that

vector[i] >= vector[j] for all j.

Usage

1
argMax(numeric_vector, verbose = FALSE)

Arguments

numeric_vector

A vector, each component is a real number (an object of class numeric).

verbose

A logical, if TRUE, then verbose summary is printed in R or R studio console.

Details

This function is very fundamental and so,,, Is there a same function in the package base?

Value

A non-negative integer, indicating a subscript, corresponding component is the maximum component.
