We investigate shape coexistence in a rotating nucleus. We concentrate on the case of 72Kr which exhibits an interesting interplay between prolate and oblate shaped states as a function of angular momentum. The calculation uses the local harmonic version of the method of self-consistent adiabatic large-amplitude collective motion. We analyse how the collective behaviour of the system changes with angular momentum and we focus on the role of non-axial shapes. © 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
