##### Arguments

- e1
distribution object

- e2
distribution object or numeric

- …
further arguments (to be able to call various methods with the same arguments

- withSimplify
logical; is result to be piped through a call to

`simplifyD`

?

##### Value

the corresponding distribution of the minimum / maximum

##### Methods

- Minimum
`signature(e1 = "AbscontDistribution", e2 = "AbscontDistribution")`

: returns the distribution of`min(X1,X2)`

, if`X1`

,`X2`

are independent and distributed according to`e1`

and`e2`

respectively; the result is again of class`"AbscontDistribution"`

- Minimum
`signature(e1 = "DiscreteDistribution", e2 = "DiscreteDistribution")`

: returns the distribution of`min(X1,X2)`

, if`X1`

,`X2`

are independent and distributed according to`e1`

and`e2`

respectively; the result is again of class`"DiscreteDistribution"`

- Minimum
`signature(e1 = "AbscontDistribution", e2 = "Dirac")`

: returns the distribution of`min(X1,X2)`

, if`X1`

,`X2`

are distributed according to`e1`

and`e2`

respectively; the result is of class`"UnivarLebDecDistribution"`

- Minimum
`signature(e1 = "AcDcLcDistribution", e2 = "AcDcLcDistribution")`

: returns the distribution of`min(X1,X2)`

, if`X1`

,`X2`

are distributed according to`e1`

and`e2`

respectively; the result is of class`"UnivarLebDecDistribution"`

- Minimum
`signature(e1 = "AcDcLcDistribution", e2 = "numeric")`

: if`e2`

= \(n\), returns the distribution of`min(X1,X2,...,Xn)`

, if`X1`

,`X2`

, ...,`Xn`

are i.i.d. according to`e1`

; the result is of class`"UnivarLebDecDistribution"`

- Maximum
`signature(e1 = "AcDcLcDistribution", e2 = "AcDcLcDistribution")`

: returns the distribution of`max(X1,X2)`

, if`X1`

,`X2`

are distributed according to`e1`

and`e2`

respectively; translates into`-Minimum(-e1,-e2)`

; the result is of class`"UnivarLebDecDistribution"`

- Maximum
`signature(e1 = "AcDcLcDistribution", e2 = "numeric")`

: if`e2`

= \(n\), returns the distribution of`max(X1,X2,...,Xn)`

, if`X1`

,`X2`

, ...,`Xn`

are i.i.d. according to`e1`

; translates into`-Minimum(-e1,e2)`

; the result is of class`"UnivarLebDecDistribution"`
