Quantum automorphism groups and K-theory

In this talk I will first motivate and explain the definition of quantum automorphisms of finite dimensional C*-algebras, leading to compact quantum groups in the sense of Woronowicz. In the second part of the talk I will explain a general strategy how to compute their K-theory using methods from the Baum-Connes conjecture.
