We discuss a simple symmetry-adapted method for the determination of the shape isomers, and for the study of their possible fragmentation. In other words the connection between the quadrupole (collective) and dipole (cluster) degrees of freedom is considered in terms of an easily applicable, yet microscopic method. The energetics is taken into account by the double-folding method. Special attention is focused on those cases in which the theoretical predictions have a direct comparison with experimental observation.
