Original Paper


We report on the interplay of localized and extended degrees of freedom in the metallic state of high-temperature superconductors in a multiband setting. Various ways in which the bare magnetic response may become incommensurate are measured against both phenomenological and theoretical requirements. In particular, the pseudogap temperature is typically much higher than the incommensurability temperature. When microscopic strong-coupling effects with real-time dynamics between copper and oxygen sites are included, they tend to restore commensurability. Quantum transport equations for low-dimensional multiband electronic systems are used to explain the linear doping dependence of the dc conductivity and the doping and temperature dependence of the Hall number in the underdoped LSCO compounds. Coulomb effects of dopands are inferred from the doping evolution of the Hartree–Fock model parameters.
