Comments
 For fixed skews, the skew system is fixed and is defined by $Y\text{'}$ and $Z\text{'}$ . Vectors of arbitrary length may be given.
 For a fixed skew, inputs are
$Y\text{'}$
axis and
$Z\text{'}$
axis, but
${X}^{\prime}$
axis is computed as:
(1) $${X}^{\prime}=Y\text{'}\Lambda Z\text{'}$$$Y\text{'}$ is recomputed as:(2) $${Y}^{\u2033}={Z}^{\prime}\Lambda {X}^{\prime}$$  The new fixed skew is defined by ${X}^{\prime}$ , ${Y}^{\u2033}$ and $Z\text{'}$ .
 The skew origin O' is useful when
defining some condition with respect to the skew in cylindrical coordinate system.
