I guess you must be learning OpenGL/OpenGL Shaders as well as OSG then.

Using callbacks to update the vertices is one possible solution, but
the most heavy-wieght in terms of CPU cost.

If you want to modify the vertices of the geoemtry using a callback
then you've done most of the required steps.  The only thing missing
is that you have to iterate over all the vertices in the Vec3Array.
Vec3Array is  std::vector<osg::Vec3> under the hood so knowledge of
Standard C++ should help here.  Also look at the include/osg/Vec3f
class to see what maths methods are available.
