#' Finds the first minima or zero of the mutual information (mi) function

#' @param v A numeric vector containing the series.
#' @param lag.max The maximum lag to consider in the mi function.
#' @param partitions Number of partitions used when computing the MI function.
#' @param plot.mi.func Should the mi function be plotted?
#' @return The first lag that minimises the mi function.
