#### Min

Function: min (<x_1>, ..., <x_n>) Return a simplified value for the minimum of the expressions `x_1` through `x_n`. When `get (trylevel, maxmin)`, is 2 or greater, `min` uses the simplification `min (e, -e) --> -|e|`. When `get (trylevel, maxmin)` is 3 or greater, `min` tries to eliminate expressions that are between two other arguments; for example, `min (x, 2*x, 3*x) --> min (x, 3*x)`. To set the value of `trylevel` to 2, use `put (trylevel, 2, maxmin)`.

There are also some inexact matches for `min`. Try `?? min` to see them.
