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.
