I present a simple algebraic model of superheavy and superdeformed nuclei, produced through heavy-ion collisions, based on a microscopic evaluation of the effective boson numbers in the actinide and superheavy regions. The relevant calculations have been performed within the framework of a deformed shell model, including the pairing interaction between like-particles. As far as the actinide isotopes are concerned, the theoretical boson numbers are compared with the corresponding empirical estimates, obtaining a good agreement. The calculated boson numbers are used to predict collective spectra and electromagnetic transition intensities for actinide - including fission isomers - and superheavy nuclei, by using the interacting boson model (IBM).
