Effect of Short Antiferromagnetic Correlations on the Normal and Superconducting Properties in Copper Oxides
The abnormal “normal” state and origin of high temperature superconductivity in cuprates are still not clear [1, 2]. The strong electron correlations (SEC) are known to be one of the main difficulties for the theory of high- cuprates. The conventional LDA (local density approximation) approach to the band structure fails in the regime of SEC. Various realistic multiband models of a layer at low energy result in the effective Hubbard or models [3 7]. The hybrid LDA+GTB scheme  generates the low-energy effective model with all parameters calculated ab initio.
