This master project studies the necessary geometric concepts to understand a theorem by Arnold on the geodesic formulation of Euler equations describing an incompressible fluid. The main goal of the project consists on studying recent results by Izosimov and Khesin in which Arnolds strategy is generalized to the setting of Lie groupoids equipped with an invariant Riemannian metric. Such an extension allows one to use techniques from geometric and topological hydrodynamics to describe fluids whose velocity has singularities known as vortex sheets. (AU)
