Definitions for "Skew"
Awry; obliquely; askew.
Turned or twisted to one side; situated obliquely; skewed; -- chiefly used in technical phrases.
To walk obliquely; to go sidling; to lie or move obliquely.
Arrangement of laminations on a rotor or armature to provide a slight angular pattern of their slots with respect to the shaft axis. This pattern helps to eliminate low speed cogging effects in an armature and minimize induced vibration in a rotor as well as reduce associated noise. Also can help to increase starting torque.
Arrangement of laminations on a rotor or armature to provide a slight diagonal pattern of their slots with respect to the shaft axis. This pattern helps to eliminate low speed cogging effects in an armature, minimizes induced vibration in a rotor, and minimizes harmonic stray currents.
Slight rotation of an image relative to the original document, usually caused by imperfect alignment of the page in the scanner’s document feeder.
The crooked representation of a scanned document. The automatic correction of skew is called "deskew".
during printing or scanning, the degree to which the page is not vertical. De-skewing is a process where the computer detects and corrects the skew in an image file.
How well the paper lines up after being folded. Off-skewed documents have the appearance of a crooked fold. Some folders come with precise controls that allow you to adjust the skew.
To turn or place an object at an angle. Often use in drawing programs to manipulate pictures or drawings.
A bending of picture at top or bottom of television screen caused by the changing of the video track angles on the tape from the time of recording to the time of playback. This can occur as a result of poor tension regulation by the VCR or by ambient conditions which affect the tape.
turn or place at an angle; "the lines on the sheet of paper are skewed"
A data distribution that is not symmetric, or that shows distortion in a positive or negative direction.
Distortion from a true or symmetrical form. A characteristic westerly skew distortion occurs in Landsat data which is caused by the movement of the Earth beneath the satellite as the satellite moves along its track.
skew is a measure of the asymmetry of a distribution. A perfectly symmetrical distribution has zero skew, while a distribution with positive (or negative) skew is one where outliers above (or below) the mean are more probable. An example is the distribution implied by the presence of a volatility skew between out-of-the- money call and put options.
The time difference between samples having the same sample number but belonging to different signals. Ideally the skew is zero (or less than one sample interval), but in some cases this is not so. For example, if the signals were originally recorded on multitrack analog tape, very small differences in the azimuth of the recording and playback heads may result in measurable skew among signals. If the skew can be measured (for example, by reference to features of two signals with a known time difference), it can be recorded in the `header' file for a record; once this has been done, getvec and getframe correct for skew automatically. If you need to correct for skew, see skewedit(1) and header(1) (in the ECG Database Applications Guide), or see section dbsetskew. Prospectively, if you anticipate that skew may be a problem, it is a good idea to apply an easily identifiable synchronization pulse to all your inputs simultaneously while recording; you can then locate this pulse in each digitized signal and use these measurements to correct for skew.
The variation in the arrival time of two signals specified to occur at the same time.
This refers to a tape tracking adjustment. If the playback pictures suffers from 'hooking' then the SKEW setting is incorrect will need to be adjusted.
The rotation of the L.N.B. within its holder to compensate for the curvature of the earth. Measured in degrees.
Skew is the amount of tilt in an input image.Skew is generally used to describe the tilt in images including text. In such images the tilt is more apparent and affects recognition and layout analysis.
Because the satellite system is not due south but further round the curvature of the earth, it appears tilted as viewed from Europe. To compensate, the dish LNB has to be tilted by an equivalent amount. This tilt is called skew.
The differential delay between two adjacent cables carrying data transmitted simultaneously.
A measure of the inequality of propagation delay between two pairs in a multi-pair cable.
The difference in delay between like paths taken by signals in a system. Designers strive to minimize skews to improve system performance.
Keywords:  trailing, misfeed, din, bulk, edge
The actual or apparent local spacing (parallel to the reference edge) between two track elements of a row (DIN 66010), generally: shift, spacing.
The misfeed of an item that causes the physical item to raise either the leading or trailing edge out of the track.
In a distribution, skew refers to the trailing off of frequencies toward extreme scores in one direction, away from the bulk of the cases.
Text that wraps around a photo or artwork; also called a wraparound or a runaround.
A bias toward a particular segment of the population, ie. the audience is skewed towards males.
Weighting advertising activity towards a particular market segment. Contributed by: MarcommWise Staff
A stone at the foot of the slope of a gable, the offset of a buttress, or the like, cut with a sloping surface and with a check to receive the coping stones and retain them in place.
A measure, in hertz, of the difference between the actual frequency of a clock and what its frequency should be to keep perfect time. See also ``drift''.
A measurement of the difference in the electrical length of two conductors or pairs of conductors and generally measured in picoseconds.
Keywords:  shy, horse, start
To start aside; to shy, as a horse.
See deviation.
rotational deviation from correct horizontal and vertical orientation; may be applied to a single character, line, or entire encoded symbol.
To bend a corner of a graphical object. Normally achieved by dragging one corner while the opposite corner remains unchanged.
Data is either disproportionately to the right or to the left of the center point of the data.
Describing the misalignment of a component or device to its proper mounting site.
Keywords:  lane, steps
The term skew, generally referring to some difference from an expected or optimal value, is common in both telecommunications and mathematics. Skew has also acquired a new meaning for computer disk drives.
In Positionable mode, the spacing between alternating columns.
