pandas.DataFrame.cummin

DataFrame.cummin(self, axis=None, skipna=True, *args, **kwargs)[source]

Return cumulative minimum over a DataFrame or Series axis.

Returns a DataFrame or Series of the same size containing the cumulative minimum.

Parameters
axis{0 or ‘index’, 1 or ‘columns’}, default 0

The index or the name of the axis. 0 is equivalent to None or ‘index’.

skipnaboolean, default True

Exclude NA/null values. If an entire row/column is NA, the result will be NA.

*args, **kwargs :

Additional keywords have no effect but might be accepted for compatibility with NumPy.

Returns
Series or DataFrame

Examples

Series

>>> s = pd.Series([2, np.nan, 5, -1, 0])
>>> s
0    2.0
1    NaN
2    5.0
3   -1.0
4    0.0
dtype: float64

By default, NA values are ignored.

>>> s.cummin()
0    2.0
1    NaN
2    2.0
3   -1.0
4   -1.0
dtype: float64

To include NA values in the operation, use skipna=False

>>> s.cummin(skipna=False)
0    2.0
1    NaN
2    NaN
3    NaN
4    NaN
dtype: float64

DataFrame

>>> df = pd.DataFrame([[2.0, 1.0],
...                    [3.0, np.nan],
...                    [1.0, 0.0]],
...                    columns=list('AB'))
>>> df
     A    B
0  2.0  1.0
1  3.0  NaN
2  1.0  0.0

By default, iterates over rows and finds the minimum in each column. This is equivalent to axis=None or axis='index'.

>>> df.cummin()
     A    B
0  2.0  1.0
1  2.0  NaN
2  1.0  0.0

To iterate over columns and find the minimum in each row, use axis=1

>>> df.cummin(axis=1)
     A    B
0  2.0  1.0
1  3.0  NaN
2  1.0  0.0
