Abstract : We made our greatest progress towards a final theory of high Tc superconductivity. The key elements are the work on normal state properties, and the actual mechanism for Tc. With the understanding (ZA) of the large anisotropy and other transport properties in the normal state, the model is uniquely determined: one must have one version or another of a holon-spinon quantum fluid state, which is not a normal fermi liquid. And with the recognition (HWA) of the large repulsion holon-holon interactions, we have the first way of thinking quantitatively about the superconducting state. Work on the pure Heisenberg system, which is related but not necessarily crucial to understanding the superconducting properties is described. Keywords: Transition temperature; Superconductors; Antiferromagnetics; Lanthanum Copper Oxides. (AW)
