Hey dudes, I'm trying to understand the proofs about IVPs in the appendix of my differential equations book but I can't understand this notation that says c = min {a, b/M}.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What is that notation supposed to mean? I'm guessing that it stands for minimum value between a and b/m. (a is associated with the x axis and b/M is associated with the y axis based on the picture of the graph in the book) I'm just beginning to study real analysis so I haven't seen this notation yet.
