Abstract: For and we present a method which permits us to obtain inequalities of the type , with the usual notation for the gamma function, where and are independent of *k*. Some examples are also given which improve well-known inequalities. Finally, we are also able to show in some cases that the values and in the inequalities that we obtain cannot be improved.
