Abstract: We discuss how the combinatorics of dimer models on Riemann surfaces capture a wealth of information about the physics of gauge theories.

In particular, the correspondence between a supersymetric gauge theory with a quiver structure and the geometry of its space of vacua becomes clear under this light.
