I've been told that there are useful interpretations of the ratios of moments of probability density distributions, such as <x^4>/<x^2>. I only have un-normalised values of the second and higher moments of the distribution of interest. Is there any way of quantifying the spatial extent of the distribution?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks for any help.
