min_element

Syntax:

    #include <algorithm>
    forward_iterator min_element( forward_iterator start, forward_iterator end );
    forward_iterator min_element( forward_iterator start, forward_iterator end, BinPred p );

The min_element() function returns an iterator to the smallest element in the range [start,end).

If the binary predicate p is given, then it will be used instead of the < operator to determine the smallest element.
