There is an useful function
Nearest in Mathematica, which finds the element in the aggregate given as its 1st argument that is nearest to its 2nd argument. It is very useful when we want to find the point out from a set which is the nearest to an arbitrary reference point.
On the other side, if we want to find the farthest point in a set from the reference point, a
Farthest function would be useful. But looking at the documentation in the Mathematica v10.0.1, I was unable to find such an function or anything like one. Am I missing something?
This is a question out of curiosity, because I can get the farthest value constructing my own function considering euclidean distance. However, I would expect Mathematica to have in-built function that is already optimized.
