Bipolarons A. S. Alexandrov, Phys. Rev. B. 38, 925 (1988). Basic theory derived already in A. S. Alexandrov, Zh. Fi. Khim. 57, 273 (1983) before the discovery of high Tc

Conclusion electron-phonon interaction is determined from electron energy relaxation electron energy relaxation is described by the non- equilibrium model, qualitatively even for non-Fermi liquids → T L / e-ph is a good measure of electron-phonon interaction almost universal dependence of T c of optimally doped compounds on T L / e-ph, sharp maximum at 5 K/fs → high T c is a collaborative effect of electron-phonon interaction and electron correlation
