Band mixing calculations have been done for 24Ne including the two degenerate prolate and oblate Hartree-Fock states and also some particle-hole excited states in the projection formalism using an interaction obtained by Preedom and Wildenthal. The energy spectrum agrees very well with the experimental results as well as the exact shell model calculations. Thus the band mixing calculations provide a good approximation to the lengthy exact shell-model calcuations. In addition they offer a physical insight into the collective nature of the nucleus as nuclear states are described in terms of only a few 'intrinsic' states.
