Abstract.

We discuss physics motivations related to hyperdeformed nuclei and more generally large nuclear deformations at high angular momenta. Possible reasons for the experimental difficulties encountered so far are discussed together with suggestions related to the new setting of priorities that combine our present-day knowledge about the behavior of hot nuclei, in particular, the Jacobi transitions, and the hyperdeformed-shell structures.
