NDVar.min(self, dims=(), **regions)

Compute the minimum over given dimensions

dims : str | tuple of str | boolean NDVar

Dimensions over which to operate. A str is used to specify a single dimension, a tuple of str to specify several dimensions, None to compute the minimum over all dimensions. A boolean NDVar with the same dimensions as the data can be used to compute the minimum in specific elements (if the data has a case dimension, the minimum is computed for each case).


Regions over which to aggregate. For example, to get the minimum between time=0.1 and time=0.2, use ndvar.min(time=(0.1, 0.2)).

name : str

Name of the output NDVar (default is the current name).

min : NDVar | Var | float

The minimum over specified dimensions. Return a Var if only the case dimension remains, and a float if the function collapses over all data.
