Error in Operator in Java 8

Hello Everyone, I am getting this error while exploring the Java 8 source and found this particular part of code very surprising:

//defined in IntPipeline.java
@Override
public final OptionalInt reduce(IntBinaryOperator op) {
    return evaluate(ReduceOps.makeInt(op));
}

@Override
public final OptionalInt max() {
    return reduce(Math::max); //this is the gotcha line
}

//defined in Math.java
public static int max(int a, int b) {
    return (a >= b) ? a : b;
}

I am using this online compiler to run the code and Is Math::max something like a method pointer? How does a normal static method gets converted to IntBinaryOperator?
