The Height Fluctuations of an Off-Critical Dimer Model on the Square Grid
The dimer model on a planar bipartite graph can be viewed as a random surface measure. We study these fluctuations for a dimer model on the square grid with two different classes of weights and provide a condition for their equivalence. In the thermodynamic limit and scaling window, these height fluctuations are shown to be non-Gaussian.
