# maximum element of a matrix

How to determine the maximum element of a matrix? For "matrix_integer_dense" there is height() [1]. For numpy matrix there is max function. How to do it in Sage matrices with one single "max" like instruction ?

[2] Alternetive: m.numpy().max()

I do not think there is any... an other alternative would be `max(m.list())` which I do not like because it explicitely build the list of the entries of m.
