Geometry of Diffeomorphism Groups, Complete integrability and Geometric statistics

Abstract [en]

We study the geometry of the space of densities Dens(M), which is the quotient space Diff(M)/Diffμ(M) of the diffeomorphism group of a compact manifold M by the subgroup of volume-preserving diffeomorphisms, endowed with a right-invariant homogeneous Sobolev Ḣ1 -metric. We construct an explicit isometry from this space to (a subset of) an infinite-dimensional sphere and show that the associated Euler-Arnold equation is a completely integrable system in any space dimension whose smooth solutions break down in finite time. We also show that the Ḣ1-metric induces the Fisher-Rao metric on the space of probability distributions and its Riemannian distance is the spherical version of the Hellinger distance.
