SYK paradigm of interacting quantum matter

We will review Sachdev-Ye-Kitaev (SYK) model, which has recently attracted attention as an illustration of the holographic duality and a model for non-Fermiliquid materials. My particular emphasis will be on the role of quantum fluctuations, which are described by the so-called Schwarzian field theory. These fluctuations lead to metal-insulator quantum phase transition with a wide "strange metal" quantum critical region.
