Smallest elements in array

returns
the smallest elements of `M`

= min(`A`

)`A`

.

If

`A`

is a vector, then`min(A)`

returns the smallest element of`A`

.If

`A`

is a matrix, then`min(A)`

is a row vector containing the minimum value of each column.If

`A`

is a multidimensional array, then`min(A)`

operates along the first array dimension whose size does not equal`1`

, treating the elements as vectors. The size of this dimension becomes`1`

while the sizes of all other dimensions remain the same. If`A`

is an empty array with first dimension`0`

, then`min(A)`

returns an empty array with the same size as`A`

.

`___ = min(___,`

specifies
whether to include or omit `nanflag`

)`NaN`

values in the calculation
for any of the previous syntaxes. For the single input case, to specify `nanflag`

without
specifying `dim`

, use `min(A,[],nanflag)`

.
For example, `min(A,[],'includenan')`

includes all `NaN`

values
in `A`

while `min(A,[],'omitnan')`

ignores
them.
