scipy.stats.tmin(a, lowerlimit=None, axis=0, inclusive=True, nan_policy='propagate')[source]

Compute the trimmed minimum.

This function finds the miminum value of an array a along the specified axis, but only considering values greater than a specified lower limit.


Array of values.

lowerlimitNone or float, optional

Values in the input array less than the given limit will be ignored. When lowerlimit is None, then all values are used. The default value is None.

axisint or None, optional

Axis along which to operate. Default is 0. If None, compute over the whole array a.

inclusive{True, False}, optional

This flag determines whether values exactly equal to the lower limit are included. The default value is True.

nan_policy{‘propagate’, ‘raise’, ‘omit’}, optional

Defines how to handle when input contains nan. The following options are available (default is ‘propagate’):

  • ‘propagate’: returns nan

  • ‘raise’: throws an error

  • ‘omit’: performs the calculations ignoring nan values

tminfloat, int or ndarray

Trimmed minimum.
