Kurtosis Function
Math Statistics Class

Public Function Kurtosis( _
    ParamArray vValues() As Variant _
    ) As Variant

Returns the kurtosis of a distribution, as defined in Numerical Recipes in C, Second Edition.
Measures the relative peakedness or flatness of a distribution.

    Kurtosis(12, 34, 56) = -2.33333333333333
    Kurtosis(12, 34, 78) = -2.33333333333333
    Kurtosis(SampleData) = -0.18912405888044
