# min(f,g) where f and g take two variables

Hi

Is it possible to create a function h(x,y) that would be the minimum (or maximum) of any two other 2-variable functions?

Like h(x,y)=max(f(x,y),g(x,y))? (this does not work)

This seems to be a rather useful function but I can't seem to find it.

any ideas?

Thanks N.

Just for reference for those finding this, this is nearly the same question as http://ask.sagemath.org/question/1338/defining-a-function-and-forcing-max-or-min-value ... which apparently you asked? (It says anonymous but you replied later.) I'm wondering if maybe we misinterpreted one of your questions and gave a less than useful answer.
