# mskmin

Calculate the minimum value of a strided array according to a mask.

## Installation

npm install @stdlib/stats-base-mskmin

## Usage

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

#### mskmin( N, x, strideX, mask, strideMask )

Computes the minimum value of a strided array x according to a mask.

var x = [ 1.0, -2.0, -4.0, 2.0 ];
var mask = [ 0, 0, 1, 0 ];

var v = mskmin( x.length, x, 1, mask, 1 );
// returns -2.0

The function has the following parameters:

• N: number of indexed elements.
• x: input Array or typed array.
• strideX: index increment for x.
• mask: mask Array or typed array. If a mask array element is 0, the corresponding element in x is considered valid and included in computation. If a mask array element is 1, the corresponding element in x is considered invalid/missing and excluded from computation.
• strideMask: index increment for mask.

The N and stride parameters determine which elements 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, -7.0, -2.0, 4.0, 3.0, -5.0, -6.0 ];
var mask = [ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1 ];
var N = floor( x.length / 2 );

var v = mskmin( N, x, 2, mask, 2 );
// returns -7.0

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

var Float64Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float64' );
var Uint8Array = require( '@stdlib/array-uint8' );
var floor = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-floor' );

var x0 = new Float64Array( [ 2.0, 1.0, -2.0, -2.0, 3.0, 4.0, 5.0, 6.0 ] );
var x1 = new Float64Array( x0.buffer, x0.BYTES_PER_ELEMENT*1 ); // start at 2nd element

var mask0 = new Uint8Array( [ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1 ] );
var mask1 = new Uint8Array( mask0.buffer, mask0.BYTES_PER_ELEMENT*1 ); // start at 2nd element

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

var v = mskmin( N, x1, 2, mask1, 2 );
// returns -2.0

#### mskmin.ndarray( N, x, strideX, offsetX, mask, strideMask, offsetMask )

Computes the minimum value of a strided array according to a mask and using alternative indexing semantics.

var x = [ 1.0, -2.0, -4.0, 2.0 ];
var mask = [ 0, 0, 1, 0 ];

var v = mskmin.ndarray( x.length, x, 1, 0, mask, 1, 0 );
// returns -2.0

The function has the following additional parameters:

• offsetX: starting index for x.
• offsetMask: starting index for mask.

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, 3.0, 4.0, -5.0, -6.0 ];
var mask = [ 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 1, 1 ];
var N = floor( x.length / 2 );

var v = mskmin.ndarray( N, x, 2, 1, mask, 2, 1 );
// returns -2.0

## Notes

• If N <= 0, both functions return NaN.
• Depending on the environment, the typed versions (dmskmin, smskmin, etc.) are likely to be significantly more performant.

## Examples

var randu = require( '@stdlib/random-base-randu' );
var round = require( '@stdlib/math-base-special-round' );
var Float64Array = require( '@stdlib/array-float64' );
var Uint8Array = require( '@stdlib/array-uint8' );
var mskmin = require( '@stdlib/stats-base-mskmin' );

var mask;
var x;
var i;

x = new Float64Array( 10 );
mask = new Uint8Array( x.length );
for ( i = 0; i < x.length; i++ ) {
if ( randu() < 0.2 ) {
mask[ i ] = 1;
} else {
mask[ i ] = 0;
}
x[ i ] = round( (randu()*100.0) - 50.0 );
}
console.log( x );
console.log( mask );

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