N2 - We suggested earlier that the energies of low-lying states in large shell-model spaces converge to their exact values exponentially as a function of the dimension in progressive truncation. An algorithm based on this exponential convergence method was proposed and successfully used for describing the ground state energies in the lowest [Formula Presented] nuclides from [Formula Presented] to [Formula Presented] using the [Formula Presented]-shell model and the FPD6 interaction. We extend this algorithm to describe nonyrast states, especially those that exhibit a large collectivity, such as the superdeformed band in [Formula Presented] We also show that a similar algorithm can be used to calculate expectation values of observables, such as single-particle occupation probabilities.
