Elementwise maximum of array elements.
Compare two arrays and returns a new array containing the elementwise maxima. If one of the elements being compared is a nan, then that element is returned. If both elements are nans then the first is returned. The latter distinction is important for complex nans, which are defined as at least one of the real or imaginary parts being a nan. The net effect is that nans are propagated.
Parameters:  x1, x2 : array_like


Returns:  y : {ndarray, scalar}

Notes
Equivalent to np.where(x1 > x2, x1, x2) but faster and does proper broadcasting.
Examples
>>> np.maximum([2, 3, 4], [1, 5, 2])
array([2, 5, 4])
>>> np.maximum(np.eye(2), [0.5, 2])
array([[ 1. , 2. ],
[ 0.5, 2. ]])
>>> np.maximum([np.nan, 0, np.nan], [0, np.nan, np.nan])
array([ NaN, NaN, NaN])
>>> np.maximum(np.Inf, 1)
