@bluescarni @rwst You might have already seen this
This was a very helpful doc on understanding the poly approach in SymPy

@bjodah, you can also use (abs(a-b)+(a+b))/2.0

Thanks @Sumith1896 that is a very good overview of the field.

@isuruf thanks, that's a neat trick but I need to call Max on quite long vectors e.g. Max(3*x + y + 2*z, 2*x + 3*y + 2*z, x + y + z) and so on... I will try to implement this. Any pointers to where I can look for an something similar to mimic?

@bjodah, if it's more than 2, I think it will be a quite complicated expression. Btw, PyFunction should be able to wrap SymPy's Max.
Needs small change to lambda_double.h though

What about defining Min(const vec_basic &arg)in functions.h analogous to Abs (but with a vector as single argument)? Using PyFunction wouldn't make much sense, I am turning to symengine for speed, if symengine is calling SymPy I might just as well use SymPy alone.
