   * Compute the maximum value of a matrix or a  list of values.
   * In case of a multi dimensional array, the maximum of the flattened array
   * will be calculated. When `dim` is provided, the maximum over the selected
   * dimension will be calculated. Parameter `dim` is zero-based.
   *
   * Syntax:
   *
   *     math.min(a, b, c, ...)
   *     math.min(A)
   *     math.min(A, dim)
   *
   * Examples:
   *
   *     math.min(2, 1, 4, 3);                  // returns 1
   *     math.min([2, 1, 4, 3]);                // returns 1
   *
   *     // maximum over a specified dimension (zero-based)
   *     math.min([[2, 5], [4, 3], [1, 7]], 0); // returns [1, 3]
   *     math.min([[2, 5], [4, 3], [1, 7]], 1); // returns [2, 3, 1]
   *
   *     math.max(2.7, 7.1, -4.5, 2.0, 4.1);    // returns 7.1
   *     math.min(2.7, 7.1, -4.5, 2.0, 4.1);    // returns -4.5
   *
   * See also:
   *
   *    mean, median, max, prod, std, sum, var
   *
   * @param {... *} args  A single matrix or or multiple scalar values
   * @return {*} The minimum value
