We discuss the possibility of using conjugation indices as the distance measure in the summation invariants space. As components for feature, vectors in such space invariant values are being used. The effectiveness of recognition is being discussed according to the face recognition. As the invariant for the feature space we used summation invariant because of its local nature property.

Key words:
recognition, multicollinearity, summation invariant, conjugation index.
