# Extensions of true skewness for unimodal distributions

@inproceedings{Kovchegov2022ExtensionsOT, title={Extensions of true skewness for unimodal distributions}, author={Yevgeniy Kovchegov and Alex Negr'on and Clarice Pertel and Christopher Wang}, year={2022} }

. A 2022 paper [8] introduced the notion of true positive and negative skewness for continuous random variables via Fr´echet p -means. In this work, we ﬁnd novel criteria for true skewness, establish true skewness for the Weibull, L´evy, skew-normal, and chi-squared distributions, and discuss the extension of true skewness to discrete and multivariate settings. Furthermore, some relevant properties of the p -means of random variables are established.

### On homogeneous skewness of unimodal distributions

- Mathematics
- 2009

We introduce a new concept of skewness for unimodal continuous distributions which is built on the asymmetry of the density function around its mode. The asymmetry is captured through a skewness…

. The skewness of the Weibull family of distributions is discussed for all values of the shape parameter. This class includes unimodal probability densities for which the coefficient of skewness…

In this work, we show how coupling and stochastic dominance methods can be successfully applied to a classical problem of rigorizing Pearson’s skewness. Here, we use Fréchet means to define…

Let x be a random variable whose first three moments exist. If the density of x is unimodal and positively skewed, then counterexamples are provided which show that the inequality mode ≤ median ≤…

SUMMARY. The usual ordering of the mean, median and mode for a central chi square distribution is extended for the noncentral case. In this context, the mean is known to be addi tive, while it is…
