Classical spin models taking value in the circle are naturally dual to spin models taking value in the integers (on the dual graph). Unlike in the context of Ising/Potts models, this duality is only visible at the level of order-disorder operators, there are no bijections between the models (as far as we know). I will revisit these well known relations, and will argue how the continuous symmetry group of S^1 will help to prove different results for the spin model and dual height function model. Notably, I will show a type of Gaussian domination holds for the height function on any graph, I will mention how it can be used to prove the Berezinskii--Kosterlitz--Thouless transition and time permitting, I will present some other results. All is based on joint work with Marcin Lis.
