MonomerDimer tatami tilings need better relationships with other math. Summary of results.
Have a look at ``Counting matchings in graphs with applications to the monomerdimer models" by Shmuel Friedland, homepages.math.uic.edu/~friedlan/kthectbeam4.8.pdf

The ten martini problem  reason for name
@Carlo the link I gave is to the typewritten English translation of the Scottish book. The portal has also complete reproductions of the Polish handwritten original and its typed version.

The ten martini problem  reason for name
Kac probably got the idea from participating in mathematicians' discussions in the famous Scottish Cafe when he was a student, and then a young researcher in Lwow before 1939. Quite often, a prize for solving a problem was a drink. See e.g. Problem 8 here: kielich.amu.edu.pl/Stefan_Banach/pdf/ksszkocka/…

Downtoearth expositions of Hodge theory
All this is nicely written up in Chapter VI.5 of MR1893803 (2003g:32001) Fritzsche, Klaus; Grauert, Hans From holomorphic functions to complex manifolds. (English summary) Graduate Texts in Mathematics, 213. SpringerVerlag, New York, 2002. xvi+392 pp. ISBN: 0387953957 I do not really know who came up with this approach, but the name of Kunihiko Kodaira appears quite often (HodgeKodaira decomposition, SerreKodaira duality).
