We use a total Hamiltonian containing both an electron-phonon induced attractive part of the interaction between electrons, and a Coulomb repulsive part formulated in the Hubbard model. By diagonalising it in the Bogoliubov and Valatin mean field approximation, we obtain equations for a two valued superconducting gap function, with a much more precise statement about the repulsive cut off energy than in the Mortel and Anderson model. By applying these equations to our bidimensional electronic model for a CuO 2 plane, we find that the calculated superconducting gap decreases very slowly with increasing doping x in La 2-xSr xCuO 4, and we compare to the behaviour of the antiferromagnetic gap.
