Engineers commonly use the gamma distribution to describe the life span or metal fatigue of a manufactured item. In this paper, we focus on finding a geodesic equation of the two parameters gamma distribution. To find this equation, we applied both the well-known Darboux Theorem and a pair of differential equations taken from Struik [1]. The solution proposed in this note could be used as a general solution of the geodesic equation of gamma distribution. It would be interesting if we compare our results with Lauritzen’s [2].
