Title: From quantum matter to high-temperature superconductivity in copper oxides

Abstract

The discovery of high temperature superconductivity in the cuprates in 1986 triggered a spectacular outpouring of innovative scientific inquiry. Much has been learned over the ensuing 28 years about the novel forms of quantum matter that are exhibited in this strongly correlated electron system. A qualitative understanding of the nature of the superconducting state itself has been achieved while profound unresolved issues have come into increasingly sharp focus concerning the astonishing complexity of the phase diagram, the unprecedented prominence of various forms of collective fluctuations, and the simplicity and insensitivity to material details of the “normal” state at elevated temperatures.
