The Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev (SYK) model has generated an enormous amount of interest because of an emergent duality (at large coupling) with a theory of gravity in a 2-dimensional AdS spacetime. It is the first model discovered to have three remarkable properties: emergent conformal invariance, solvability and saturation of a quantum chaos bound. It is of interest in condensed matter physics because the model and its variants capture many non-Fermi liquid features.
