// If you don't have the php_stats library, you can use this function:
public static function getKurtosis( $values )
{
$numValues = count( $values );
if ( $numValues == 0 ) {
return 0.0;
}

// Use function from php_stats library if available
if ( function_exists( 'stats_kurtosis' ) ) {
return stats_kurtosis( $values );
}

$mean = array_sum( $values ) / floatval( $numValues );
$add2 = 0.0;
$add4 = 0.0;

foreach ( $values as $value ) {
if ( ! is_numeric( $value ) ) {
return false;
}
$dif = $value - $mean;
$dif2 = $dif * $dif;
$add2 += $dif2;
$add4 += ( $dif2 * $dif2 );
} // foreach values

$variance = $add2 / floatval( $numValues );
return ( $add4 * $numValues ) / ( $add2 * $add2 ) - 3.0;
}
