 Neutron Peak in the Cuprates - The Never-Ending Story

Andrey Chubukov

(University of Maryland)

Abstract:  In the talk, I will review the experimental results on the magnetic resonance peak in the cuprates, including very recent results on the dispersion of the peak, and on the existence of the second resonance at higher frequencies. I will then discuss various theoretical scenarios for the resonance peak and will argue that the exciton scenario is the most reliable one.
