# minv¶

## Purpose¶

Performs an element by element comparison of two matrices and returns the minimum value for each element.

## Format¶

z = minv(x, y)
Parameters
• x (NxK matrix) – data

• y (NxK matrix) – data

Returns

z (NxK matrix) – values are the minimum of each element from the arguments x and y.

## Examples¶

// Create the multiplicative sequence 1, 2, 4, 8
x = seqm(1, 2, 4);

// Reverse the order of the elements in 'x' and assign them
// to 'y'
y = rev(x);

z = minv(x, y);


After the code above:

    1          8          1
x = 2      y = 4      z = 2
4          2          2
8          1          1


## Remarks¶

minv() works for sparse matrices as well as arrays.
