Quantum dimer models
Additional recommended knowledge
Typical phases of quantum dimer models tend to be valence bond crystals. However, on non-bipartite lattices, RVB liquid phases possessing topological order also appear. The discovery of topological order in quantum dimer models (more than a decade after the models were introduced) has led to new interest in these models.
Classical dimer models have been studied previously in statistical physics.
