The domino theory deception makes the claim that if one thing happens another will invariably follow.

On the other hand, as follows from the theory of monomer-dimer systems , phase transitions can only occur for tilings with vanishing monomino density, regardless of the dimensionality of the system – these phases are the (pure) domino tilings mentioned above.

The complements we have given to the facts stated in [CaLe] result in a fairly complete and elegant theory for domino tableaux, which forms a nice parallel to the theory for ordinary tableaux, as described in [vLee5].

How fast do dominoes fall?” The “domino theory of Southeast Asia” says that if Vietnam falls, then Laos falls, then Cambodia falls, and so on.
