We consider rough paths in the context of differential equations on homogenous manifolds. Our approach generalises both the Chen-type shuffle algebra of word series underlying Terry Lyons’ theory of rough paths as well as the branched rough paths of Massimiliano Gubinelli, which are based on B-series and the Connes-Kreimer Hopf algebra of rooted trees. The new approach contains these as special cases and extends geometrically to rough paths evolving on homogeneous manifolds.
