Abstract. An overview is given on the advances in the recently developed method of merging nuclear energy density functional theory and the interacting boson model. By establishing the mapping between the fermionic and bosonic intrinsic states, the Hamiltonian of the interacting boson model is derived for general cases covering from vibrational to rotational deformed regimes. Recent examples resulting from the method are reported: the phenomena of shape coexistence and octupole deformation.
