Spin glasses are disordered spin systems originated from the
desire of understanding the strange magnetic behaviors of certain alloys in
physics. As mathematical objects, they are often cited as examples of
complex systems and have provided several fascinating structures and
conjectures. This talk will be focused on one of the famous mean-field spin
glasses, the Sherrington-Kirkpatrick model. We will present results on the
conjectured properties of the Parisi measure including its uniqueness and
quantitative behaviors. This is based on joint works with A. Auffinger.
