x_{1} is aligned diagonally along/between nonadjacent vertices x_{2} as in polytope x_{3}; x_{1} is a diagonal line segment/linear manifold of lower dimension as viewed in frame of reference x_{3}; x_{1} is crooked (one sense), skew (one sense, see notes), off-kilter (one sense), away from center/off-center, non-orthogonal/not perpendicular nor parallel, at an angle, perhaps non-vertical and non-horizontal, diagonal to x_{2} in figure/coordinate system x_{3}.

Not for use in: entries of tensors/matrices (confer: daigno), certain geometric meanings (such as with Cartesian products), etc. Only for purely 'visual' geometric objects/figures/frames. The polytope in question need not actually be 'drawn'; an oriented frame of reference naturally 'projects' a polytopic sense onto all objects. x1 can be any linear manifold of lower dimension than the space in which it is embedded (defined by x3). The skewness is not relative to another linear manifold in some higher-dimensional space (the usual definition of "skew" in geometry) - it is simply a skewness (in a layperson sense) relative to points in a figure or axis in a coordinate system. Proposed by Gleki.

_{1}(ordered list) is a sampling of entries of matrix/tensor x_{2}in which exactly one entry is sampled from each row and/or column (etc.) between entries x_{3}(list; default: the largest 'square'/'hypercubic' sampling possible in the entire tensor starting with the first entry, see notes) inclusively following selection procedure/rule/function/order x_{4}(default: diagonally, see notes), where the tensor/matrix is expressed in basis/under conditions x_{5} - strelka
