In various situations it is desirable to fit a set of points to a continuous variable giving rise to groups. In 'cluster analysis' such points are referred to as 'cluster means'. See Cox(1957) and Hartigan(1978) for details. Following the terminology used by Flury(1990) we study so called principal points for univariate distributions. (author's abstract)
