Abstract

High precision local density electronic band structure results (for YBa2Cu3O7, YBa2Cu3O6 and GdBa2Cu3O7) lead to the possibly important role of charge transfer excitations as the mechanism of high-Tc superconductivity, and explain the coexistence of magnetism and superconductivity in the high-Tc rare-earth superconductors.
