There are several interacting spin systems which have a gap in their spin excitation spectra. The gap does not occur due to anisotropies present in the system but is quantum mechanical in origin. We give a brief over view on different types of spin gap (SG) antiferro magnets, the models proposed to describe their physi cal properties and experimental realizations of such systems. Our special focus is on exactly-solvable models and rigorous theories which provide the correct physical picture for the novel phenomena exhibited by SG systems.
