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.
