Why is the FindPeaks function returning every data point in the table?

Posted 8 years ago

Hi guys! So I am trying to use the FindPeaks function to find the maxima of this data set: See: fig

But when I run FindPeaks, I get a list of every data point that was graphed...Fig

Does anyone else have this problem or know how to fix it?

Sorry if this is obvious to others, I just started using Mathematica yesterday. Thanks in advance!!

If you look at the help page for FindPeaks and click on the "Details and Options" it shows that the data must be in the form of {y1,y2,y3...} or some more complicated forms and not in the form {{x1,y1},{x2,y2},{x3,y3}...}

If you tried FindPeaks[Map[Last, OvT]] then that would discard the x, give you the y and FindPeaks might then work for you.
