The goal of the DIMERS project is to study several aspects of the dimer models and other related models from statistical mechanics: limit shapes and fluctuations, dynamics, integrability and connection with gauge theory. The multidisciplinary consortium is composed of probabilists, combinatorialists and physicists.

Various approaches are combined, from combinatorial bijections, to quantum field theory, including representation theory, methods of differential geometry and discrete complex analysis.

The DIMERS project is funded by the French National Agency for Research (ANR) under the grant number ANR-18-CE40-0033, for the period 2019-03-01 until 2023-28-02.
