MultivariateKurtosis

MultivariateKurtosis[matrix]
gives a multivariate kurtosis coefficient for matrix.
  • is a univariate measure of kurtosis for multivariate data.
  • MultivariateKurtosis[matrix] is equivalent to where , =Mean[matrix] and is the estimated population covariance matrix.
  • For a matrix with p columns, a value of the multivariate kurtosis coefficient close to indicates approximate multinormality.
