        @brief Kurtosis estimation

        The kurtosis of a sample distribution is defined as the ratio of the 4th central moment and the square of the 2nd central
        moment (the variance) of the samples, minus 3. The term \f$ -3 \f$ is added in order to ensure that the normal distribution
        has zero kurtosis. The kurtosis can also be expressed by the simple moments:

        \f[
            \hat{g}_2 =
                \frac
                {\widehat{m}_n^{(4)}-4\widehat{m}_n^{(3)}\hat{\mu}_n+6\widehat{m}_n^{(2)}\hat{\mu}_n^2-3\hat{\mu}_n^4}
                {\left(\widehat{m}_n^{(2)} - \hat{\mu}_n^{2}\right)^2} - 3,
        \f]

        where \f$ \widehat{m}_n^{(i)} \f$ are the \f$ i \f$-th moment and \f$ \hat{\mu}_n \f$ the mean (first moment) of the
        \f$ n \f$ samples.
