|The six-vertex model with domain wall boundary conditions (DWBC)
has recently undergone a revival of interest, both for its
remarkable connections with some important issues in enumerative
combinatorics and for the fact that bulk quantities are sensitive
to boundary conditions even in the thermodynamic limit. We shall
here present and discuss some recently obtained exact results
for the model.
