+---+-----+------+
|age| name|height|

|  2|Alice|    80|
|  3|Alice|   100|
|  5|  Bob|   120|
| 10|  Bob|   140|
+---+-----+------+

Group-by name, and calculate the max of the age in each group.

>>> df.groupBy("name").max("age").sort("name").show()
+-----+--------+
| name|max(age)|
+-----+--------+
|Alice|       3|
|  Bob|      10|
+-----+--------+

Calculate the max of the age and height in all data.

>>> df.groupBy().max("age", "height").show()
+--------+-----------+
|max(age)|max(height)|
+--------+-----------+
|      10|        140|
