# minmag

Computes the element-wise minimum of each pair of vector
a
elements and vector
b
elements in terms of magnitude.

## Description

The
minmag(a,b)
function returns a vector with element values equal to the element with the smaller magnitude from each pair of corresponding elements of the two vectors
a
and
b
:
• If |
a
| < |
b
| minmag(a,b) returns
a
, otherwise minmag(a,b) returns
b
.
• If |
b
| < |
a
| minmag(a,b) returns
b
, otherwise minmag(a,b) returns
a
.
• Otherwise minmag behaves like fmin.

sa
Slice selector for
a
. See Data Types for a description of the oneMKL slice type.
b
The buffer containing the 2nd input vector.
sb
Slice selector for
b
. See Data Types for a description of the oneMKL slice type.
sy
