Returns -2 x log-likelihood and the p-value for the hypothesized kurtosis.

Parameters: kurt0 (float) – Kurtosis value to be tested return_weights (bool) – If True, function also returns the weights that maximize the likelihood ratio. Default is False. test_results – The log-likelihood ratio and p-value of kurt0 tuple
