kurtosis(trace, win=3.0, rtmemory_list=None)[source]

Apply recursive kurtosis calculation on data.

Recursive kurtosis is computed using the [ChassandeMottin2002] formulation adjusted to give the kurtosis of a Gaussian distribution = 0.0.

  • trace (Trace) Trace object to append to this RtTrace
  • win (float, optional) window length in seconds for the kurtosis (default is 3.0 s)
  • rtmemory_list (list of RtMemory, optional) Persistent memory used by this process for specified trace
Return type:

NumPy numpy.ndarray


Processed trace data from appended Trace object
