Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering (RIXS) provides direct access to elementary charge, spin and orbital excitations in complex oxides. As a technique it has made tremendous progress with the advent high-brilliance synchrotron x-ray sources. The fundamental question that arises is to precisely which low-energy correlation functions RIXS is sensitive. I will show that depending on the experimental RIXS set up, the measured charge dynamics can include charge-transfer, d-d and orbital excitations [1,2]. RIXS also allows probing spin dynamics, in particular magnons and bi-magnons dispersions [3,4]. Based on these observations, I will discuss the novelties that RIXS reveals on the spin dynamics of High Tc cuprates .
