We solve the monomer-dimer problem on a nonbipartite lattice, a simple quartic lattice with cylindrical boundary conditions, with a single monomer residing on the boundary. Due to the nonbipartite nature of the lattice, the well-known method of solving single-monomer problems with a Temperley bijection cannot be used. In this paper, we derive the solution by mapping the problem onto one of closed-packed dimers on a related lattice. Finite-size analysis of the solution is carried out. We find…

We consider the monomer–dimer partition function on arbitrary finite planar graphs and arbitrary monomer and dimer weights, with the restriction that the only non-zero monomer weights are those on

AbstractWe consider the monomer–dimer model on weighted graphs embedded in surfaces with boundary, with the restriction that only monomers located on the boundary are allowed. We give a Pfaffian

Specific heat and partition function zeros for the dimer model on the checkerboard B lattice: Finite-size effects.
The partition function of the dimer model on a 2M×2N checkerboard B lattice wrapped on a torus is analyzed and very unusual behavior of the partition function zeros and the specific heat of the Dimer model is found.

Spanning tree generating functions and Mahler measures
We define the notion of a spanning tree generating function (STGF) $\sum a_n z^n$, which gives the spanning tree constant when evaluated at $z=1,$ and gives the lattice Green function (LGF) when
