 negative skewness   کژالی ِ ناییدار   kažâli-ye nâyidârFr.: asymétrie négative   Of a distribution function, a skewness in which the left tail (tail at small end of the distribution) is more pronounced that the right tail (tail at the large end of the distribution). → positive skewness.→ negative; → skewness. positive skewness   کژالی ِ داهیدار   kažâli-ye dâhidârFr.: asymétrie positive   Of a distribution function, a skewness in which the right tail (tail at the large end of the distribution) is more pronounced than the left tail (tail at small end of the distribution). → negative skewness.→ positive; → skewness. skew   کژال   kažâlFr.: distordu   General: Having an oblique direction or position; being in a slanted or unsymmetrical position. Geometry: Two or more lines that are not parallel and do not intersect. Statistics: Having → skewness.From Old North French eskiuer "to shy away from, avoid," O.Fr. eschiver (Fr. esquiver "to shirk, dodge") "to eschew, keep away from;" related to shy.Kažâl, from kaž "crooked, bent, being aside" (cf. Skt. kubja- "hump-backed, crooked," Pali kujja- "bent," L. gibbus "hump, hunch," Lith. kupra "hump") + -âl, → -al. skew-symmetric tensor   تانسور ِ پاد-همامون   tânsor-e pâdhamâmunFr.: tenseur antisymétrique   A tensor that is the negative of its → transpose. For example, a second-order covariant tensor Ajk if its components satisfy the equality: Ajk = - Akj. Also called antisymmetric tensor.→ skew; → symmetric; → tensor.Tânsor, → tensor; pâd-, → anti-; hamâmun, → symmetric. skewness   کژالی   kažâliFr.: degré d'asymétrie   A measure of the degree of asymmetry of a distribution. If the left tail (tail at small end of the distribution) is more pronounced that the right tail (tail at the large end of the distribution), the function is said to have → negative skewness. If the reverse is true, it has → positive skewness. If the two are equal, it has → zero skewness.Noun from → skew + → -ness.
