I am comparing two numerical vectors a and b. I want to create two new vectors-one is the element by element minimum of a(i) and b(i). The other has the maximums. are there functions that do this? The vectors are the same length.

Did you try the documentation for min and max ?

Functions max and min do the trick:
vect_max = max(a,b)
vect_min = min(a,b)

Thanks. I did not read far enough into the min and max documentation.
