Title:  A low-regularity method for producing homogeneous structure

Abstract:   We will summarize recently developed tools to produce a homogeneous space structure from a collection of group actions. The method is different from others because the group structure is not obtained infinitesimally. The method combines results on free products of topological groups, Lie criteria for topological groups and rigidity of smooth structures on Lie groups. We will also discuss settings in which this method may be applied.
