The even isotopes of mercury have been systematically studied using the Interacting Boson Model (IBM). In order to treat shape coexistence in the light isotopes, two separate IBM calculations were performed with different configurations, which were subsequently mixed. The four Hamiltonian parameters, which were allowed to vary freely from isotope to isotope, were found to be consistent with the corresponding IBM parameters used for platinum and osmium. Overall, the calculated energy spectra and electromagnetic properties are in reasonable agreement with experiment.
