DataFrame.max(axis=0, skipna=True, level=None)
Parameters :

axis : {0, 1}

0 for row-wise, 1 for column-wise

skipna : boolean, default True

Exclude NA/null values. If an entire row/column is NA, the result will be NA

If the axis is a MultiIndex (hierarchical), count along a particular level, collapsing into a DataFrame

Returns :

This method returns the maximum of the values in the DataFrame. If you want the index of the maximum, use DataFrame.idxmax. This is the equivalent of the numpy.ndarray method argmax.
