Title: 
Faithful actions of locally compact quantum groups on classical spaces

A rigidity conjecture by Goswami states that existence of a smooth and faithful action of a compact quantum group G on a compact connected Riemannian manifold M forces G to be compact group. In particular, whenever the action is isometric, or G is finite dimensional, Goswami and Joardar have proved that the conjecture is true. The first step in the investigation of a non-compact version of this rigidity conjecture demands a correct notion of faithful actions of locally compact quantum groups on classical spaces. In this talk, we show that bicrossed product construction for locally compact groups provides a large class of examples of non-Kac locally compact quantum groups acting faithfully and ergodically on classical (non-compact) spaces. However, none of these actions can be isometric, leading to the aforementioned rigidity conjecture may hold in the non-compact case as well. This is based on the joint work in progress with Debashish Goswami.
