The set of Euclidean distance matrices has a well-known representation as a convex cone. The problems of representing the group averages of K distance matrices are discussed, but not fully resolved, in the context of SMACOF, Generalized Orthogonal Procrustes Analysis and Individual Differences Scaling. The polar (or dual) cone representation, corresponding to inner-products around a centroid, is also discussed. Some new characterisations of distance cones in terms of circumhyperspheres are presented.
