### Metric completion of $\mathrm{Diff}\left(\left[0,1\right]\right)$ with the right-invariant ${H}^{1}$ metric

S. di Marino, A. Natale, R. Tahraoui, F-X. Vialard. In [21]: We consider the group of smooth increasing diffeomorphisms $\mathrm{Diff}$ on the unit interval endowed with the right-invariant H1 metric. We compute the metric completion of this space which appears to be the space of increasing maps of the unit interval with boundary conditions at 0 and 1. We compute the lower-semicontinuous envelope associated with the length minimizing geodesic variational problem. We discuss the Eulerian and Lagrangian formulation of this relaxation and we show that smooth solutions of the EPDiff equation are length minimizing for short times.
