Min

  • Min[ , , ... ] yields the numerically smallest of the .
  • Min[ , , ... , , ... , ... ] yields the smallest element of any of the lists.
  • Min yields a definite result if all its arguments are real numbers.
  • In other cases, Min carries out some simplifications.
  • Min[ ] gives Infinity.
  • See the Mathematica book: Section 1.1.3Section 3.2.2.
