Tânsor, → tensor; pâd-, → anti-; hamâmun, → symmetric.

skewness
  کژالی

If the reverse is true, it has → positive skewness. If the two are equal, it has → zero skewness.

Noun from → skew + → -ness.

Fr.: peau

Pust "skin;" Mid.Pers. pôst "skin;" O.Pers. pavastā- "thin clay envelope used to protect unbaked clay tablets;" Av. pastô-, in pastô.fraθanhəm "of the breadth of the skin;" Skt. pavásta- "cover," Proto-Indo-Iranian *pauastā- "cloth."

skin effect
  اُسکر ِ پوستی   
oskar-e pusti

sky background
  پس‌زمینه‌ی ِ آسمان   
paszamine-ye âsmân

Fr.: fond du ciel   

The emission of a part of the night sky that does not contain any detectable objects. Sky background results from the combined radiation from faint, unresolved stars and other emitting astronomical objects. The mean brightness of night sky background measured at the → Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO) for the period 1992 to 2006 are: U = 22.12, B = 22.82, V = 21.79, R = 21.19, and I = 19.85 mag arcsec-2 ( → rms ~ 0.2 mag arcsec-2). See also → sky brightness.

sky; → background..

sky brightness
  درخشندگی ِ آسمان   
deraxšandegi-ye âsmân

Fr.: brillance du ciel   

Atmospheric (→ airglow, → auroral emission, → artificial light) or extraterrestrial (→ scattered  → sunlight from Moon, scattered → starlight, → interplanetary dust) foreground light that → interferes with → observations.

sky subtraction
  زیرکرشش ِ آسمان   
zirkaršeš-e âsmân

skyglow
  نور ِ شهر، فروغ ِ آسمان   
nur-e šahr, foruq-e âsmân

Fr.: illumination du ciel   

The illumination of the night sky in urban areas caused by wasted light shining upward scattered off dust, humidity, and air. Skyglow is a type of → light pollution that results from light fixtures emitting a portion of their light directly upward into the sky. Light scattered in the atmosphere creates an orange-yellow glow above a city or town. Skyglow interferes with sensitive astronomical instruments designed to capture light from distant stars, nebulae, and galaxies. Skyglow can often be detected hundreds of kilometers away.

sky; → glow.

Nur, → light; foruq, → glow; šahr, → city; âsmân, → sky.

skylight
  نور ِ آسمان   
nur-e âsmân-e

Fr.: lumière du ciel   

Solar radiation which reaches the observer from the general sky. It is sunlight which has undergone multiple scattering events with the molecules of the Earth's atmosphere (Rayleigh scattering) or with clouds or other aerosols in the atmosphere. High levels of skylight reduce the contrast of a shadow. Also known as diffuse skylight, diffuse sky radiation.

sky; → light.

slab
  تیات   
tiyât

Fr.: dalle   

A broad, flat, somewhat thick piece of stone, wood, or other solid material (Dictionary.com).

slash
  اسلش

From M.E. slaschen, perhaps from M.Fr. esclachier "to break," variant of esclater "to break, splinter."

Eslaš, loan from E.
