# 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 onex2: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 onex2: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
