## Introduction to Mathematical StatisticsAn exceptionally clear and impeccably accurate presentation of statistical applications and more advanced theory. Included is a chapter on the distribution of functions of random variables as well as an excellent chapter on sufficient statistics. More modern technology is used in considering limiting distributions, making the presentations more clear and uniform. |

distribution is 3; hence if the two distributions were equal and normal we would

expect K to be about 3. Of course, a longer-tailed distribution has a bigger

kurtosis.

From

**Exercise**3.64, Section 3.4, we know that the kurtosis of the normaldistribution is 3; hence if the two distributions were equal and normal we would

expect K to be about 3. Of course, a longer-tailed distribution has a bigger

kurtosis.
