Abstract
Probability points are computed for a sample kurtosis of independent, indentically distributed Gaussian variates when the sample moments are taken about the true mean. The method of computation allows the accurate determination of the probability points even for small tail probabilities, and values are tabulated for probabilities as small as E-4. Moreover, the results suggest that the probability points tabulated here may also be used when the sample moments are taken about the sample mean.
