The self-consistent mean field approach offers an efficient way to explain

many properties of nuclei especially in the medium-heavy and heavy mass

region. I will discuss an application of the Adiabatic Time Dependent

Hartree-Fock-Bogolyubov (ATDHFB) theory to describe low-energy quadrupole

collective excitations in even-even nuclei. The theory makes it possible to

calculate energy levels of excited states and electromagnetic transition

probabilities based solely on the microscopic input. In most presented

cases theoretical results were obtained using the Skyrme-like energy

functionals. I will also mention some open questions, e.g. extension of

the collective space by adding variables for pairing degrees of freedom.
