A central mystery posed by the Cu-based high temperature superconductors has been the nature of their electronic state at low hole density.
I will survey the remarkable progress made by recent experiments towards solving this mystery.
The experiments show that there is a density-wave order with d symmetry. This is distinct from the d symmetry of the wavefunction
of the Cooper pairs responsible for the superconductivity.
I will review theories which anticipated these developments.
