We discuss a container structure for non-gaslike cluster states, in which single Tohsaki-Horiuchi-Schuck-Röpke (THSR) wave functions are shown to be almost 100 % equivalent to the full solutions of the corresponding RGM/GCM equations, for the inversion doublet band states in 20Ne, α-linear-chain states, and α+α+Λ cluster states in 9ΛBe. The recognition of the fact that the THSR wave function describes well not only gaslike cluster states but also non-gaslike cluster states is a recent remarkable development of nuclear cluster physics. This fact tells us that the cluster structure is composed of cluster-mean-field motion under the constraint of inter-cluster Pauli repulsion, in which we call the cluster-mean-field potential the container.
