In this paper, we combine separate works on (a) the transfer of infinitesimal rigidity results from an Euclidean space to the next higher dimension by coning (Whiteley in Topol. Struct. 8:53–70, 1983), (b) the further transfer of these results to spherical space via associated rigidity matrices (Saliola and Whiteley in arXiv:0709.3354, 2007), and (c) the prediction of finite motions from symmetric infinitesimal motions at regular points of the symmetry-derived orbit rigidity matrix (Schulze and Whiteley in Discrete Comput. Geom. 46:561–598, 2011). Each of these techniques is reworked and simplified to apply across several metrics, including the Minkowskian metric Md and the hyperbolic metric ℍ d .
This leads to a set of new results transferring infinitesimal and finite motions associated with corresponding symmetric frameworks among Ed , cones in Ed+1 , Sd , Md , and ℍ d . We also consider the further extensions associated with the other Cayley–Klein geometries overlaid on the shared underlying projective geometry.
