About maximum
In mathematical analysis, the maxima and minima (the respective plurals of maximum and minimum) of a function, known collectively as extrema (the plural of extremum), are the largest and smallest value of the function, either within a given range (the local or relative extrema) or on the entire domain (the global or absolute extrema). Pierre de Fermat was one of the first mathematicians to propose a general technique, adequality, for finding the maxima and minima of functions.
As defined in set theory, the maximum and minimum of a set are the greatest and least elements in the set, respectively. Unbounded infinite sets, such as the set of real numbers, have no minimum or maximum.

Higgins potted 15 reds and 15 blacks before clearing up the colours to record the 11th maximum break in Crucible history and keep alive his hopes of reaching the quarter-finals.

The 2019 finalist, who trailed 5-3 overnight, made a strong start to the morning session and reduced the deficit to one.

Norwegian Kurt Maflin responded with the next frame before he moved three ahead after a break of 97.

Four-time world champion Higgins hit back in the final frame of the session with a sparkling maximum, the first achieved at the Sheffield venue since Stephen Hendry in 2012.

It is the 10th 147 the Scot has made in his career, but he trails Marflin 7-5 while Mark Selby is 3-1 up against Noppon Saengkham.
