Hi everone,
The data I'm working with is given as a list of numbers that always starts at 1 and increases consecutively to some value, then starts back over at 1 again. Each individual number has its own row in a single column.
For example
1
2
3
1
2
3
4
5
1
2
In this list there are three groups of interest: the group 1-3 (3 max number), 1-5 (5 max number), and 1-2 (2 max number).
I am trying to write a program that spits out the maximum value of each group of consecutive numbers. I've tried a few strategies but am having trouble formatting the data. Any help is very much appreciated!!

This works great too, and I understand the logic behind it. Thank you!

If those simple rules can be depended upon, then
A = [1;2;3;1;2;3;4;5;1;2;3;4;5;6;1;2];
seqpeaks = A(circshift(A==1,-1))
seqpeaks = 4×1
3 5 6 2
