# Minimum Absolute Difference in an Array

Given an array of integers, find and print the minimum absolute difference between any two elements in the array.

For example,

Input: -59 -36 -13 1 -53 -92 -2 -96 -54 75

Output: 1

```
// Complete the minimumAbsoluteDifference function below.
function minimumAbsoluteDifference(arr) {
let min_difference = Number.MAX_VALUE;
// sorts the given array in an ascending order
arr.sort((a,b) => a-b);
for (let i = 0; i < arr.length - 1; i++) {
min_difference = Math.min(Math.abs(arr[i] - arr[i+1]), min_difference);
// Return early as 0 is the minimum absolute difference
if (min_difference == 0)
return 0;
}
return min_difference;
}
```

The solution to the above problem is using a greedy solution as we are finding local minimum at every step to find the global minimum. You may refer to below article to read more about them.
