Enumerable.Min Method (IEnumerable<Double>)

Returns the minimum value in a sequence of Double values.

Namespace:  System.Linq
Assemblies:   System.Linq (in System.Linq.dll)
  System.Core (in System.Core.dll)

public static double Min(
	this IEnumerable<double> source
)

Parameters

source
Type: System.Collections.Generic.IEnumerable<Double>

A sequence of Double values to determine the minimum value of.

Return Value

Type: System.Double
The minimum value in the sequence.

Usage Note

In Visual Basic and C#, you can call this method as an instance method on any object of type IEnumerable<Double>. When you use instance method syntax to call this method, omit the first parameter. For more information, see Extension Methods (Visual Basic) or Extension Methods (C# Programming Guide).

ExceptionCondition
ArgumentNullException

source is null.

InvalidOperationException

source contains no elements.

The Min(IEnumerable<Double>) method uses the Double implementation of IComparable<T> to compare values.

In Visual Basic query expression syntax, an Aggregate Into Min() clause translates to an invocation of Min.

The following code example demonstrates how to use Min(IEnumerable<Double>) to determine the minimum value in a sequence.

            double[] doubles = { 1.5E+104, 9E+103, -2E+103 };

            double min = doubles.Min();

            Console.WriteLine("The smallest number is {0}.", min);

            /*
             This code produces the following output:

             The smallest number is -2E+103.
            */
