[scikit-learn] numpy.amin behaviour with multidimensionnal arrays

Is this a numpy specific terminology ?

For a multidimensionnal array with dimension=n and size l1 x l2 x ... x ln, does "along axis=0" mean that l2 x..x ln operations are performed scrolling first dimension, each operation on l1 elements,  and that an array with dimension n-1 and size l2 x..x ln containing the operations results is returned?

( Finally I'm not sure this sentence really clarify ... ;-) )

It means that instead of returning the minimum value anywhere in the entire matrix, it will return the minimum value for each column or each row depending on which axis you put in, so a vector instead of a scalar.

I would like to understand the behaviour of the scipy.spatial.kdtree<http://aka.ms/weboutlook> class that uses numpy.amin function.

In the numpy.amin description, we find that it returns the "minimum value along a given axis"

What does it mean exactly ?

Thanks for any help
