# kurtosis

From e1071 v0.9-2

##### Kurtosis

Computes the kurtosis of the values of `x`

.

If $N = length(x)$, then the kurtosis of $x$ is defined as $$N^(-1) var(x)^(-2) sum_i (x_i - mean(x))^4 - 3$$

##### Usage

`kurtosis(x, na.rm=FALSE)`

##### Arguments

- x
- a numeric vector containing the values whose kurtosis is to be computed.
- na.rm
- a logical value indicating whether NA values should be stripped before the computation proceeds.

##### Value

- Returns the kurtosis of x.

##### Examples

```
x<-rnorm(100)
kurtosis(x)
```
