Some future version of Octave will probably allow things like

  A .+ V


  A .* V

to do what you expect.  For now, you have to use a multiplication or
indexing tricks to convert the vector to a matrix of the proper size.

min (A, s)

|         (A < B) .* A + (A >= B) .* B

min (A, B)

I don't know of better ways to do the other tasks you mention.
