Abstract

I discuss a string theoretic approach to integrable lattice models. This approach provides a unified perspective on various important notions in lattice models, and relates these notions to four-dimensional N = 1 supersymmetric field theories and their surface operators.  I explain how my construction connects to Costello's work and the Nekrasov-Shatashvili correspondence.
