Hello,
When writting a gamma distributed RV we need to know the shape and scale parameters. How to find the value of these parameters? Thanks in advance

What do you mean by find these parameters? Do you wish to estimate the parameters of a gamma distribution from some data?

[tex]\gamma = \frac{\\mathbf{h}\^2P}{N_0}[/tex] where [tex]\mathbf{h}[/tex] is a column vector of Nakagamim distributed RVs. Then how to find the scale and shape parameters from this equation?
