I'm working on a project that required me to go through the literature to find some information on Compton and Rayleigh scattering. I came across a key expression, part of it which read:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

max{ f(x,Z), g(x,Z) } if Z > 10 and f(x,Z) < 2

where f(x,Z) and g(x,Z) are known functions.

The problem is I don't understand the max{f(x,Z),g(x,Z)} notation. I have done some poking around on the interwebs but nothing really helpful has come up.

Thanks for future help!
