# minsorted

Calculate the minimum value of a sorted strided array.

## Installation

npm install @stdlib/stats-base-minsorted

## Usage

var minsorted = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-minsorted' );

#### minsorted( N, x, stride )

Computes the minimum value of a sorted strided array x.

var x = [ 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 ];
var N = x.length;

var v = minsorted( N, x, 1 );
// returns 1.0

x = [ 3.0, 2.0, 1.0 ];
N = x.length;

v = minsorted( N, x, 1 );
// returns 1.0

The function has the following parameters:

The N and stride parameters determine which elements in x are accessed at runtime. For example, to compute the minimum value of every other element in x,

var floor = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-floor' );

var x = [ 1.0, 2.0, 2.0, -7.0, 3.0, 3.0, 4.0, 2.0 ];
var N = floor( x.length / 2 );

var v = minsorted( N, x, 2 );
// returns 1.0

Note that indexing is relative to the first index. To introduce an offset, use typed array views.

var Float64Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float64' );
var floor = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-floor' );

var x0 = new Float64Array( [ 2.0, 1.0, 2.0, 2.0, -2.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0 ] );
var x1 = new Float64Array( x0.buffer, x0.BYTES_PER_ELEMENT*1 ); // start at 2nd element

var N = floor( x0.length / 2 );

var v = minsorted( N, x1, 2 );
// returns 1.0

#### minsorted.ndarray( N, x, stride, offset )

Computes the minimum value of a sorted strided array using alternative indexing semantics.

var x = [ 1.0, 2.0, 3.0 ];
var N = x.length;

var v = minsorted.ndarray( N, x, 1, 0 );
// returns 1.0

The function has the following additional parameters:

• offset: starting index for x.

While typed array views mandate a view offset based on the underlying buffer, the offset parameter supports indexing semantics based on a starting index. For example, to calculate the minimum value for every other value in x starting from the second value

var floor = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-floor' );

var x = [ 2.0, 1.0, 2.0, 2.0, -2.0, 2.0, 3.0, 4.0 ];
var N = floor( x.length / 2 );

var v = minsorted.ndarray( N, x, 2, 1 );
// returns 1.0

## Notes

• If N <= 0, both functions return NaN.
• The input strided array must be sorted in either strictly ascending or descending order.

## Examples

var Float64Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float64' );
var minsorted = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-minsorted' );

var x;
var i;

x = new Float64Array( 10 );
for ( i = 0; i < x.length; i++ ) {
x[ i ] = i - 5.0;
}
console.log( x );

var v = minsorted( x.length, x, 1 );
console.log( v );
