This chapter presents the gamma generalized family of
distributions proposed by Zofragos and Balakrishnan (2009). Several
mathematical properties are provided such as representations for gamma-G
density and cumulative functions, some generalized moments, quantile and
generating functions and entropies. A bivariate generalization is presented.
An application is performed in order to illustrate empirically the usefulness of
