comment A point minimizing total great circle distance to a given set of points on a hemisphere
@Rahul yes, now that you point that out, and specifically on the hemisphere, if that helps. I believe that a hemisphere guarantees that the geometric median will be unique, whereas on the sphere there could be an infinite number of points.

@Fengyang I would expect that it would be good enough. I'm not doing anything too fancy and I don't need amazing accuracy. How do you approximate it?

@Fengyang I believe I found $g$, but I cant find it's inverse, since $g$ uses sigma notation.

@Fengyang does that mean they are not concise functions that can be posted here?

@Mark Sorry, but I don't understand. Can you dumb it down a bit :) ?

What is WAI? Is it a general trend that arbitrary pdf's are hard to solve? The question seemed so simple conceptually... I'm 2/2 now for getting unexpectedly difficult solutions to questions about conceptually simple pdf's.
