A characteristic of a special case of Riemannean barycenters on the unit circle is presented. The non-uniqueness of such barycenters leads to an interesting study of the so-called multiple barycenters. In this work, we deal with a smooth one-dimensional manifold S1 only. Some theoretical and computational analysis is listed.
