Adding the global U(1) symmetry to the SYK model is a simple and fun exercise. I would like to explain how to obtain the charge and zero temperature entropy formulas solely from the IR parameters of the model. In particular, I will mention a free fermion interpretation of the zero temperature entropy. Work in progress with Kitaev, Sachdev, and Tarnopolsky.
