This chapter addresses the Kumaraswamy's generalized (\Kw-G" for short)
family of models. A physical motivation for the Kw-G family is presented
and some of its special cases are discussed in detail. This family receives
a baseline distribution as input and returns a new distribution with two
additional parameters. The returned model is often more
exible than the
baseline one. Several structural properties are presented and discussed for
the Kw-G family. Among them, useful expansions, mgf, moments and mean
deviations. Additionally, estimation and generation procedures are presented.
