The generalized gamma distribution includes as particular cases
different well-known distributions, such as the Nakagami-m. We pro
pose a computationally efficient technique to generate correlated time-series with generalized gamma distribution. This method is useful in
the simulation of GNSS signals disturbed by ionospheric scintillation.
The technique requires only knowledge of two parameters, besides
the definition of a model for the amplitude power spectrum.
