The dome-shaped doping dependence of the superconducting temperature \(T_{c}\) in La\(_{2-x}\)Sr\(_{x}\)CuO4 (Nd\(_{2-x}\)Ce\(_{x}\)CuO\(_{4-\delta}\)) is described in this chapter, based on the model in which the O-(Cu-)Fermi surface changes by the doping. At the end of the overdoping, where the critical temperature \(T_{c}\) vanishes, inversion of the Fermi surface curvature occurs, a phenomenon which can be observed as the sign change of the Hall coefficient. For the optimum Fermi surface (highest \(T_{c}\)) the Cooper pair has a d-wave probability density distribution. This anisotropy decreases with increasing doping.
