The positive-negative parity states, potential energy surfaces, V(β, γ), transition probabilities, B(E1), B(E2), staggering effect and electric monopole strength, X (E0/E2), values of 154Gd have been calculated within the frame work of the interacting boson approximation model (I BA − 1). The results obtained are compared to the available experimental, theoretical data and reasonable agreement has achieved. The potential energy surfaces, levels energy and transition probability ratios show that 154Gd is an X (5) candidate.
