@emin |

Element by element minimums of two data objects matrices.

Syntax: @emin(m1, m2)

m1: numeric or alphanumeric object

m2: numeric or alphanumeric object

Return: vector or matrix object

Returns the element minimum of the conformable matrices m1 and m2.

Examples

Suppose there are n individuals deciding between two courses of action. Let L1 be an n-vector whose i-th element represents the loss the i-th individual experiences from taking the first action. Define L2 similarly. Then

= @emin(l1, l2)

returns an n-vector of losses that results from each individual taking the course of action that minimizes loss.
