Exactly solved models of chaotic many-body dynamics

One should be amazed with an unreasonable effectiveness of random matrix theory to describe spectral fluctuations in simple non-integrable many-body systems, say one dimensional spin 1/2 chains with local interactions. I will discuss a class of Floquet (periodically driven) quantum spin chains - specifically, dual unitary Floquet circuits - where the random matrix result for the spectral form factor can be derived or even rigorously proven. Several other nontrivial exactly solvable features of the presented models, such as dynamical correlations or entanglement dynamics, will be discussed.
