Title: Particle Systems arising from an Anti-ferromagnetic Ising Model
Abstract: We present a low temperature anisotropic anti-ferromagnetic 2D Ising model

through the guise of a certain dimer model. This model also has a bijection with a one-dimensional particle system equipped with creation and annihilation. We can find the exact phase diagram, which determines two significant values (the independent and critical value). We also highlight some of the behavior of the model in the scaling window at criticality and at independence.
