Find largest number in an array

Find largest number in an Array

Problem Statement

Design an algorithm to find maximum value among a set of N numbers.


Algorithm Name: Search Max(A, N, R).

Input : A is an array contains N (>=0) number of real numbers.

Output: R will hold the index of the first maximum value in the the array A.

Step 1: R = 0.

Step 2: i = 1.

Step 3: WHILE ( i< N )

IF ( A[i] > A[R] ) Then

R = i


i = i + 1


Step 4: Return.
