# asymmetry

Englisch - Englisch

That which causes something to not be symmetrical
Want of symmetry, or proportion between the parts of a thing, especially want of bilateral symmetry
{n} a want of just proportion
the depiction in a work of art of two sides as being not identical without impairing the general harmony of the work Asymmetry is used to prevent a work from appearing static and superficial, as no two sides of a life form are identical
The parts of a design organized so that one side differs from the other without destroying the overall harmony
Lacking symmetry, that is, lacking balance in shape, size, and relative position of parts on opposite sides of the body or in actions taken by the body
Uneven, irregular design
n Lack of balance or symmetry
In networking, a system in which the relationship between two entities is inherently unequal, with each entity restricted to a set of operations and prerogatives defined by its role in the relationship
A lack of equivalence between two things, such as the unequal tax treatment of interest expense and dividend payments [Harvey]
Asymmetry is the appearance that something has when its two sides or halves are different in shape, size, or style. the asymmetry of Van de Velde's designs of this period. symmetry
(mathematics) a lack of symmetry
{i} lack of symmetry, lack of balance and proportion
Aspects of letterforms that depart from mirror images relationships between letter pairs, especially 'b-d' and 'p-q', and within individual letters, such as 'T' in some typefaces
lacking symmetry; parts of the body are unequal in shape or size
Incommensurability
Having unlike, or noncorresponding appearances; without symmetry An example; a two-dimensional color work which, without any necessarily visible or implied axis, displays an uneven distribution of parts throughout the composition
A lack of equivalence between two things, such as the unequal tax treatment of interest expense and dividend payments
Not having similar design of space, shape, form, time, or energy on either side of a dividing line or plane
A balance of parts on opposite sides of a perceived midline, giving the appearance of equal visual weight
Want of symmetry, or proportion between the parts of a thing, esp
is arrangements of elements or units which imply balance but are placed in such a way as to create a dynamic sense
want of bilateral symmetry
asymmetrical
Presenting a false dilemma, or a choice between two things which are not opposites

Question six is asymmetrical: Are things going in the right direction or on the wrong track? (The West Wing, Season 1, Episode 21, Toby).

asymmetry.
dissymmetry
information asymmetry
(Ekonomi) In economics and contract theory, an information asymmetry is present when one party to a transaction has more or better information than the other party. (This is also called a state of asymmetric information). Most commonly, information asymmetries are studied in the context of principal-agent problems. In 2001, the Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel was awarded to George Akerlof, Michael Spence, and Joseph E. Stiglitz "for their analyses of markets with asymmetric information."

asymmetrical
response Term used to describe the comparative shapes of the boost/cut curves for variable equalizers The cut curves do not mirror the boost curves, but instead are quite narrow, intended to act as notch filters
asymmetrical
When used in reference to projectiles or tools, asymmetrical refers to opposing side of an object which have dissimilar contours, shape or form
asymmetrical
Without symmetry, irregular or unequal, used to describe some animals such as sponges
asymmetrical
Having no proper proportions; unsymmetrical
asymmetrical
a design in which there is balance but the elements are not duplicated on each side A block such as maple leaf is asymmetrical since all four of its corners are not the same In a block, this makes for interesting possibilities since different design elements appear depending on how the blocks are rotated Any block divided down the middle by a diagonal line, such as Log Cabin, is asymmetrical

asymmetrical
not bilaterally symmetrical
asymmetrical
lack of symmetry; when divided in the middle and the halves are not at all similar
asymmetrical
Data transfer where upstream and downstream data flow occurs at different speeds, usually a higher rate of speed downstream, and a slower rate upstream Reflective of typical end-user Internet usage patterns, where more data is received than sent, and no servers (such as web server) are in operation

asymmetrical
is an uneven placement of a set of objects, values, or ideas in a sculpture, painting or environment in order to create balance Example: a large object on one side of a composition is balanced by a small object placed on the opposite side (see symmetrical)
