• max

`public static double max(NodeList nl)`
The math:max function returns the maximum value of the nodes passed as the argument. The maximum value is defined as follows. The node set passed as an argument is sorted in descending order as it would be by xsl:sort with a data type of number. The maximum is the result of converting the string value of the first node in this sorted list to a number using the number function.

If the node set is empty, or if the result of converting the string values of any of the nodes to a number is NaN, then NaN is returned.

Parameters:
`nl` - The NodeList for the node-set to be evaluated.
Returns:
the maximum value found, NaN if any node cannot be converted to a number.
EXSLT
• min

`public static double min(NodeList nl)`
The math:min function returns the minimum value of the nodes passed as the argument. The minimum value is defined as follows. The node set passed as an argument is sorted in ascending order as it would be by xsl:sort with a data type of number. The minimum is the result of converting the string value of the first node in this sorted list to a number using the number function.

If the node set is empty, or if the result of converting the string values of any of the nodes to a number is NaN, then NaN is returned.

Parameters:
`nl` - The NodeList for the node-set to be evaluated.
Returns:
the minimum value found, NaN if any node cannot be converted to a number.
EXSLT
• highest

`public static NodeList highest(NodeList nl)`
The math:highest function returns the nodes in the node set whose value is the maximum value for the node set. The maximum value for the node set is the same as the value as calculated by math:max. A node has this maximum value if the result of converting its string value to a number as if by the number function is equal to the maximum value, where the equality comparison is defined as a numerical comparison using the = operator.

If any of the nodes in the node set has a non-numeric value, the math:max function will return NaN. The definition numeric comparisons entails that NaN != NaN. Therefore if any of the nodes in the node set has a non-numeric value, math:highest will return an empty node set.

Parameters:
`nl` - The NodeList for the node-set to be evaluated.
Returns:
node-set with nodes containing the maximum value found, an empty node-set if any node cannot be converted to a number.
• lowest

`public static NodeList lowest(NodeList nl)`
The math:lowest function returns the nodes in the node set whose value is the minimum value for the node set. The minimum value for the node set is the same as the value as calculated by math:min. A node has this minimum value if the result of converting its string value to a number as if by the number function is equal to the minimum value, where the equality comparison is defined as a numerical comparison using the = operator.

If any of the nodes in the node set has a non-numeric value, the math:min function will return NaN. The definition numeric comparisons entails that NaN != NaN. Therefore if any of the nodes in the node set has a non-numeric value, math:lowest will return an empty node set.

Parameters:
`nl` - The NodeList for the node-set to be evaluated.
Returns:
node-set with nodes containing the minimum value found, an empty node-set if any node cannot be converted to a number.
