On geodesic exponential maps of the Virasoro group


Constantin, A; Kappeler, T; Kolev, B; Topalov, P (2007). On geodesic exponential maps of the Virasoro group. Annals of Global Analysis and Geometry, 31(2):155-180.

Abstract

We study the geodesic exponential maps corresponding to Sobolev type right-invariant (weak) Riemannian metrics μ(k) (k≥ 0) on the Virasoro group Vir and show that for k≥ 2, but not for k = 0,1, each of them defines a smooth Fréchet chart of the unital element e ∈Vir. In particular, the geodesic exponential map corresponding to the Korteweg–de Vries (KdV) equation (k = 0) is not a local diffeomorphism near the origin.
