Derivative of a Two-Parameter Gamma Distribution
Hello Math Forums,
This is my first time posting here so I apologize for not knowing all the functions of the board, but I just have a stats question that I am unable to solve.
I am trying to determine the derivative of a two parameter Gamma distribution, dg(x;α,β)/d(x), using the gamma distribution shown below.
I would greatly appreciate any help on this.

Hint: Try using the product rule of d/dx(uv) = uv' + vu' where u = x^(alpha-1) and v = e^(-x/Beta)
