I understand that there are global reduction macros for parallel computing, which can make all the nodes have a minimum/ maximum/ boolean value. But I do not want to reduce to a minimum/ maximum.

Instead, say I have a vector [a1, a2, a3]. Each node has a copy of this vector, and the values differ from node to node. I want all nodes to take the values from the node which has minimum a1. e.g:
NODE0: [0.21, 5, 8]
NODE1: [0.1, 4, 10]
NODE2: [0.15, 0, -5]

I want all nodes to have the vector corresponding to minimum a1. In other words, after reduction, I want my data to look like this:
NODE0: [0.1, 4, 10]
NODE1: [0.1, 4, 10]
NODE2: [0.1, 4, 10]

Does anyone have any idea if this is possible?

Thank you!
