Abstract

On the basis of the itinerant-localized duality theory of spin fluctuations, the puzzling aspects of the neutron scattering experiments in the normal state of high-Tc cuprates are clarified from a global point of view. The dynamical spin structure factor exhibits two different aspects depending on the energy transfer ω. At lower energies, ω < ωc, where ωc is the fermion coherence energy, the spectrum is coherent so that the characteristic scales for wavevector and energy are temperature dependent, while at higher energies, ω > ωc, the spectrum is incoherent so that those characteristic scales are temperature independent. The integrated weight of the coherent part of the spectrum exhibits the so-called "spin gap" behavior when the Fermi surface of the itinerant fermion is technically nested, even though there is no excitation gap in the spectrum at all.
