By calculating the electronic entropy, superfluid density, thermoelectric power and spin susceptibility from ARPES derived energy-momentum dispersions we establish overall consistency among these techniques. In light of these calculations the experimental data reveals the approach of the Fermi level to a van Hove singularity in the overdoped regime, thereby forcing a revision of theories based on the so-called ‘van Hove scenario’. Comparison of the Tc phase diagram with the density of states at the Fermi level allows us to propose a universal pairing potential that reproduces both the doping dependence of Tc, as well as the variation in Tc,max between different species of cuprate superconductors.
