By using only a fraction of the model space, we gain further insight - within a symmetry-guided no-core shell model framework - into the many-body nuclear dynamics that gives rise to important single-particle configurations together with correlated highly-deformed and alpha-cluster structures. We show results of the novel ab initio symmetry-adapted no-core shell model for large-scale nuclear structure computations. In addition, we use the symmetry patterns unveiled in these results to explore ultra-large model spaces. © Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd.
