In this paper, block distance matrices are introduced. Suppose F is a square block matrix in which each block is a symmetric matrix of some given order. If F is positive semidefinite, the block distance matrix D is defined as a matrix whose (i, j)-block is given by Dij = Fii+Fjj-2Fij. When each block in F is 1×1 (i.e., a real number), D is a usual Euclidean distance matrix. Many interesting properties of Euclidean distance matrices to block distance matrices are extended in this paper. Finally, distance matrices of trees with matrix weights are investigated.
