It is shown that a simple anharmonic vibrator model can account for the properties of yrast states in collective nuclei, as well as the quesi-band states built on the ?-vibration or on the 0; state. This description extends from nearly harmonic vibrator nuclei to pure rotor nuclei and encompasses both energies and B(E2) d u e s . It survives both "horizontal" and "vertical" perspectives on the data of nuclear physics and offers a challenge to microscopic theories of nuclear structure.
