Python | Pandas TimedeltaIndex.argmax
  • Last Updated : 28 Oct, 2019

Python is a great language for doing data analysis, primarily because of the fantastic ecosystem of data-centric python packages. Pandas is one of those packages and makes importing and analyzing data much easier.

Pandas TimedeltaIndex.argmax() function returns the indices of the maximum values along an axis in the TimedeltaIndex object. The function is similar to numpy.ndarray.argmax.

Syntax : TimedeltaIndex.argmax(axis=None, *args, **kwargs)

Parameters :
axis : None

Return : integer index value



Example #1: Use TimedeltaIndex.argmax() function to find the indices of the maximum value in the given TimedeltaIndex object.

# importing pandas as pd
import pandas as pd
  
# Create the first TimedeltaIndex object
tidx = pd.TimedeltaIndex(start ='1 days 02:00:12.001124'
                   periods = 5, freq ='N', name ='Koala')
  
# Print the TimedeltaIndex object
print(tidx)

Output :

Now we will print the index of the maximum value in tidx object.
