generated family, generalized gamma distribution, exponentiated Weibull distribution.


In this paper, we present the Generalized Gamma-Exponentiated Weibull distribution as a special case of new generated Generalized Gamma - G family of probability distribution. The cumulative distribution, probability density, reliability and hazard rate functions are introduced. Furthermore, the most vital statistical properties, for instance, the r-th moment, characteristic function, quantile function, simulated data, Shannon and relative entropies besides the stress-strength model are obtained.
