This article provides a survey of several important concepts related to Shimura varieties with parahoric level structure at a prime \(p\) by using the Rapoport-Zink local model as the main tool. In particular, it discusses local models attached to general linear groups and symplectic groups. Their relations with Shimura varieties with parahoric level structure are illustrated by describing two examples, namely, the simple or fake unitary Shimura varieties with parahoric level structure and the Siegel modular varieties with \(\Gamma_0 (p)\)-level structure. The article also includes some applications of local models to problems involving flatness, stratifications of special fibers, and the determination of the semisimple local zeta functions for simple Shimura varieties.
