During the period of this grant the theory of superconductivity in high Technetium cuprates matured into a reasonable consistent, complete theory which has the capability, often realized, of confronting all of the puzzling experimental properties of the materials. During the period of the grant occurred the Cargese NATO Summer School June 1990 attended by several of us who were being funded by the grant, and at that school I summarized progress up to that time. B. Doucot who had been one of our group was the local organizer. Perhaps the best summary of the situation at that time was given in my Chapter II setting out what I called the Central Dogmas of the theory, which is enclosed. At that meeting was formulated the justification of the Luttinger liquid hypothesis via a finite Fermi surface phase shift which led to several papers, especially the PRL and response on the subject showing how the Fermi liquid theory breaks down.
