I have a number of distance matrices that I want to associate their members with a probability distribution. Is there a method which can affiliate each distance matrix with a distribution?
EDIT: Lets say I have a distance matrix like:
A1 A2 A3 A4 ... A1 X 1 3 2 A2 1 X 4 3 A3 3 4 X 3 A4 2 3 3 X . . .
Now I want to see what are the distribution parameters if members of this matrix were from a probability distribution. I only have the matrix and I do not know what is the distribution of the data.
