Many strongly-correlated systems like high Tc cuprates and heavy fermions have interesting features going beyond quasi-particle description. While Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev(SYK) models are exactly solvable models that can provide a platform to study these physics. In this talk, I will discuss interesting features about the SYK models, including extensive zero temperature entropy and maximally chaos. I will also show some generalization of the SYK models and discuss physical insights from them.
