Computes the minimum of elements across dimensions of a tensor.

    input_tensor, axis=None, keepdims=False, name=None

Reduces input_tensor along the dimensions given in axis. Unless keepdims is true, the rank of the tensor is reduced by 1 for each entry in axis. If keepdims is true, the reduced dimensions are retained with length 1.

If axis is None, all dimensions are reduced, and a tensor with a single element is returned.


  • input_tensor: The tensor to reduce. Should have real numeric type.
  • axis: The dimensions to reduce. If None (the default), reduces all dimensions. Must be in the range [-rank(input_tensor), rank(input_tensor)).
  • keepdims: If true, retains reduced dimensions with length 1.
  • name: A name for the operation (optional).


The reduced tensor.
