A Pfaffian formula for monomer-dimer partition functions
Geometric and Analytic Theory of Hamiltonian Systems in Finite and Infinite Dimensions, SISSA, Trieste, Italy
January 19, 2016
In this talk, I will present a formula for the partition function of the monomer-dimer problem on an arbitrary planar graph, in terms of a Pfaffian, provided the monomers are restricted to the boundary of the graph.
This is joint work with A.Giuliani and E.H.Lieb.
