I have a really complicated function that I need to take partial derivative of. After executing the partial derivative, I got a function that contains both $\max(0,a-b)$ and $\max^{(0,1)}(0,a-b)$ for some constant $a,b$.

I know what $\max()$ function does but I've never seen $\max^{(0,1)}$ before.

What is the difference between those two functions? Is $\max^{(0,1)}$ simply outputting binary (True/False) result?

Thank you in advance!
