Skewness–kurtosis bounds for the skewed generalized T and related distributions

Statistics & Probability Letters, 2013, vol. 83, issue 9, pages 2129-2134

Abstract: Bounds for the skewness–kurtosis space corresponding to the skewed generalized t, skewed generalized error, skewed t, and some other distributions are presented and contrasted with the bounds reported by Klaassen et al. (2000) for unimodal probability density functions. The skewed generalized T and skewed generalized error distributions have the greatest flexibility of the distributions considered.
