We describe the potential energy landscapes of Se3-Se8 clusters using disconnectivity graphs. Inherent structures include both chain and ring configurations, with rings dominating in the larger clusters. Transition points are located using an eigenvector-following technique, which is of general applicability in mapping multi-dimensional energy landscapes.
