# Compute the Parallel Minima and Maxima between Vectors in R Programming – pmin() and pmax() Functions

`pmin()` function in R Language is used to return the parallel minima of the input vectors.

Syntax: pmin(x1, x2)

Parameters:
x1: vector one
x2: vector two

Example 1:

 `# R program to illustrate ` `# pmin() function ` ` `  `# First example vector ` `x1 <``-` `c(``2``, ``9``, ``5``, ``7``, ``1``, ``8``)   ` `  `  `# Second example vector             ` `x2 <``-` `c(``0``, ``7``, ``2``, ``3``, ``9``, ``6``)   ` ` `  `# Application of pmin() in R ` `pmin(x1, x2)                                `

Output:

`[1] 0  7 2 3 1 6`

#### pmax() Function

`pmax()` function returns the parallel maxima of two or more input vectors.

Syntax: pmax(x1, x2)

Parameters:
x1: vector one
x2: vector two

Example :

 `# R program to illustrate ` `# pmax() function ` ` `  `# First example vector ` `x1 <``-` `c(``2``, ``9``, ``5``, ``7``, ``1``, ``8``)   ` `  `  `# Second example vector             ` `x2 <``-` `c(``0``, ``7``, ``2``, ``3``, ``9``, ``6``)   ` ` `  `# Application of pmax() in R ` `pmax(x1, x2)                                                               `

Output:

`[1] 2 9 5 7 9 8 `
