KURT(number1 [,number2] [..)

Returns the kurtosis for a list or array of numbers.

number1The first number.
number2(Optional) The second number.

* The Kurtosis of a [[Probability Distribution]] indicates how much data resides in the tails.
* This function characterises the relative 'peakedness' or 'flatness' of a distribution compared with the normal distribution.
* The arguments can be either arrays, cell references or named ranges that contain numbers.
* If an array or reference argument contains text, logical values, or empty cells, those values are ignored; however, cells with the value zero are included.
* If there are fewer than four data points, then #DIV/0! is returned.
* If the standard deviation of the sample equals zero, then #DIV/0! is returned.
* You can have a maximum of 255 arguments.
* You can use the SKEW function to return the skewness of a distribution based on a sample.
