Byline: Joachim Escher (1), Boris Kolev (2) Keywords: Euler equation; Diffeomorphisms group of the circle; Degasperis--Procesi equation; 35Q53; 58D05 Abstract: In this paper we present a geometric interpretation of the Degasperis--Procesi (DP) equation as the geodesic flow of a right-invariant symmetric linear connection on the diffeomorphism group of the circle. We also show that for any evolution in the family of b-equations there is neither gain nor loss of the spatial regularity of solutions. This in turn allows us to view the DP and the Camassa--Holm equation as an ODE on the Frechet space of all smooth functions on the circle.
