# MultivariateKurtosis

MultivariateKurtosis[matrix]

gives a multivariate kurtosis coefficient for matrix.

# Details and Options

• To use MultivariateKurtosis, you first need to load the Multivariate Statistics Package using Needs["MultivariateStatistics`"].
• MultivariateKurtosis is a univariate measure of kurtosis for multivariate data.
• MultivariateKurtosis[matrix] is equivalent to where matrix={x1,x2,,xn}, Mean[matrix], and is the estimated population covariance matrix.
• For a matrix with columns, a value of the multivariate kurtosis coefficient close to indicates approximate multinormality.
