A method of deriving the Hamiltonian of the interacting boson model, that is based on the microscopic framework of the nuclear energy density functional, is presented. The constrained self-consistent mean-field calculation with a given energy density functional provides potential energy surface within the relevant collective coordinates, which is subsequently mapped onto the expectation value of the interacting-boson Hamiltonian in the boson condensate state. This procedure completely determines the strength parameters of the IBM, and the diagonalization of the mapped Hamiltonian yields excitation spectra and transition rates for a given nucleus. Two recent applications of the method are discussed, that is, the descriptions of the intruder states in Cadmiumisotopes and the octupole correlations in neutron-rich odd-mass Barium isotopes.
