Partition function of periodic isoradial dimer models - Zurich Open Repository and Archive


de Tilière, B (2007). Partition function of periodic isoradial dimer models. Probability Theory and Related Fields, 138(3-4):451-462.

Abstract

Isoradial dimer models were introduced in Kenyon (Invent Math 150(2):409–439, 2002)—they consist of dimer models whose underlying graph satisfies a simple geometric condition, and whose weight function is chosen accordingly. In this paper, we prove a conjecture of (Kenyon in Invent Math 150(2):409–439, 2002), namely that for periodic isoradial dimer models, the growth rate of the toroidal partition function has a simple explicit formula involving the local geometry of the graph only. This is a surprising feature of periodic isoradial dimer models, which does not hold in the general periodic dimer case (Kenyon et al. in Ann Math, 2006).

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
