Calculation of the kurtosis coefficient of the modules

Share:

Description

This function calculates the kurtosis coefficient, which characterizes the shape of the distribution from a set of input modules.

Usage

1

Arguments

modules

Vector containing the values of the modules

Details

One way to obtain a set of modules from X and Y coordinates of the vectors is to use the LoadData function.

The kurtosis coefficient is a measure of whether the data are flat or peaked relative to the normal distribution.

Value

The value of the kurtosis coefficient of all input modules
