Bott-Virasoro Group; Ito equation
The Ito equation is shown to be a geodesic flow of $L^2$ metric on the semidirect product space ${\widehat{{\it Diff}^s(S^1) \bigodot C^{\infty }(S^1)}}$, where ${\it Diff}^s(S^1)$ is the group of orientation preserving Sobolev $H^s$ diffeomorphisms of the circle. We also study a geodesic flow of a $H^1$ metric.
