DEPARTMENT COLLOQUIUM | Intertwined Orders in High Temperature Superconductors

I will argue that the orders that are present in high temperature superconductors naturally arise with the same strength and are better regarded as intertwined rather than competing. I illustrate this concept in the context of the orders that are present in the pair-density-wave state and the phase diagrams that result from this analysis. I will also briefly discuss some recent progress in the microscopic origin of this phenomenon.
