Local Maximom Point

P
/**
 * [LocalMaxima](https://www.geeksforgeeks.org/find-indices-of-all-local-maxima-and-local-minima-in-an-array/) is an algorithm to find relative bigger numbers compared to their neighbors
 *
 * Notes:
 * - works by using divide and conquer
 * - the function gets the array A with n Real numbers and returns the index of local max point (if more than one exists return the first one)
 *
 * @complexity: O(log(n)) (on average )
 * @complexity: O(log(n)) (worst case)
 * @flow
