To find maxima and minima of a continuous-time signal we can use differentiation. I want to know how do we find maxima and minima of a discrete-time signal?

You can still do the differentiation but numerically. Then the argument which indicates ablolutely minimum value is what you are after.
Other way would be to sort you data in descending order, if it is finite, and take the first element.
