Domino tiings of the two-periodic Aztec diamond exhibit interesting statistical mechanical behaviors – a limit shape emerges separating three macroscopic interfaces, known as frozen, rough and smooth that depend on the local statistics. We survey some of the recent results on this model, including ideas to understand the rough-smooth boundary.
