Cuprate superconductors have shaped the contemporary state of condensed matter physics. Recently, infinite-layer Nd-doped NiO${}_{2}$ nickelates have initiated a new era of unconventional superconductivity, of which this paper constitutes the first comprehensive theoretical analysis at weak and strong coupling.
