 P: 590 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
 P: 284 What do you mean by find these parameters? Do you wish to estimate the parameters of a gamma distribution from some data?

No, I meant if we are given the equation of the gamma distributed RV, how to find these parameters from this equation? Mathematically:
$$\gamma = \frac{\|\mathbf{h}\|^2P}{N_0}$$
where $$\mathbf{h}$$ is a column vector of Nakagami-m distributed RVs. Then how to find the scale and shape parameters from this equation?
