CentralMoment

CentralMoment[list, r]
gives the r^(th) central moment of the elements in list with respect to their mean.
  • For the list {x_1,x_2,…,x_n}, the r^(th) central moment is given by , where is the mean of the list.
  • CentralMoment[{{x1, y1, ...}, {x2, y2, ...}, ...}, r] gives {CentralMoment[{x1, x2, ...}, r], CentralMoment[{y1, y2, ...}, r]}.
  • CentralMoment[{{x1, y1, ...}, {x2, y2, ...}, ...}, {r1, r2, ...}] gives {CentralMoment[{x1, x2, ...}, r1], CentralMoment[{y1, y2, ...}, r2], ...}.
