Angular-momentum- and number-projected Hartree-Fock-Bogoliubov (HFB) wave functions of translational and deformed rare earth nuclei are analyzed in terms of fermion pairs coupled to angular momenta L = 0 (S), 2 (D), 4 (G),/3. The fermion space is truncated to contain only S-D or S-D-G pairs. The variation is carried out before and after angular momentum projection and also with different truncations. The influence of the truncation on physical quantities such as moments of inertia, quadrupole moments or pair transfer matrix elements is discussed.
