A simple two-state mixing model has been applied to members of the two rotational bands containing the two lowest states in 74, 76, 78Kr . For each even angular momentum J , two physical states are taken to be linear combinations of basis states and . Mixing amplitudes are varied in order to reproduce E2 transition matrix elements. Unique solutions are found for the and mixing in all three cases, and for the E2 matrix elements connecting the basis states. The basis-state band containing basis state is found to be much more collective than the one containing in 74, 78Kr , and somewhat more collective in 76Kr . From the fit, the amount of basis state in the lower of the two physical J states decreases very rapidly with increasing J . The wave functions from the fit are used to compute matrix elements for transitions, some of which are unknown. A sign discrepancy is noted for the transition matrix element in 74Kr .
