Page 19 - > 0, "x" bipolaron band has its minima at K =(±n, 0) and y-band at K — (0, ±7i). In these equations t is the renormalized hopping integral between p orbitals of the same symmetry elongated in the direction of the hopping (ppa) and t' is the renormalized hopping integral in the perpendicular direction (ppn).

Page 3 - Low energy physics is that of small polarons and bipolarons (real-space electron (hole) pairs dressed by phonons). They are itinerant quasiparticles existing in the Bloch states at temperatures below the characteristic phonon frequency.

Page 4 - ... has led many researchers to say that there is no theory of HTS and no progress in understanding the phenomenon. A significant fraction of theoretical research in the field has suggested that the interaction in novel superconductors is essentially repulsive and unretarted, and it could provide high Tc without phonons. Indeed strong onsite repulsive correlations (Hubbard U) are essential in shaping the insulating state of undoped (parent) compounds. Different from conventional band-structure insulators...
