To simulate peak-shaped analytical signals, the shape characteristics and geometrical properties of four asymmetric basic functions (the derivative of the logistic function, the Gaussian function, the Cauchy function modified by Fraser and Suzuki, and the Poisson function with the Stromberg correction) are systematically studied. The frame representation, which was proposed earlier by the two authors of this paper, is used to characterize the peak shape. Some regularities are found in peak properties expressed in terms of the frame parameters and considered as functions of the coefficient of skewness b. Peak shapes are compared using two approaches to obtaining dimensionless frame parameters: one using relative parameters and another using parameters of the unit frame. It is shown that the frame representation of the peak shape can be used in the phenomenological simulation of metal peaks in stripping voltammetry. The practical use of information on the shape of the analytical signal in the solution of various problems of analytical chemistry is discussed.
