# cumsum: Cumulative Sums, Products, and Extremes

## Description

Returns a vector whose elements are the cumulative sums, products,
minima or maxima of the elements of the argument.
## Usage

cumsum(x)
cumprod(x)
cummax(x)
cummin(x)

## Arguments

x

a numeric or complex (not `cummin`

or `cummax`

)
object, or an object that can be coerced to one of these.

## Value

A vector of the same length and type as `x`

(after coercion),
except that `cumprod`

returns a numeric vector for integer input
(for consistency with `*`

). Names are preserved.An `NA`

value in `x`

causes the corresponding and following
elements of the return value to be `NA`

, as does integer overflow
in `cumsum`

(with a warning).

## S4 methods

`cumsum`

and `cumprod`

are S4 generic functions:
methods can be defined for them individually or via the
`Math`

group generic.
`cummax`

and `cummin`

are individually S4 generic functions.## Details

These are generic functions: methods can be defined for them
individually or via the `Math`

group generic.
