Abstract

I will discuss the interplay between the fermionic nodal quasiparticles of a d-wave superconductor and the various spin and charge orders that have been observed in the cuprate superconductors. Fluctuations of a composite \'nematic\' order are identified as the dominant source of inelastic scattering which broadens the quasiparticle spectral function.
