The nucleosynthesis of proton-rich isotopes is calculated for multi-dimensional Chandrasekhar-mass models of Type Ia supernovae (SNe Ia) with different metallicities. The predicted abundances of the short-lived radioactive isotopes {sup 92}Nb, {sup 97,} {sup 98}Tc, and {sup 146}Sm are given in this framework. The abundance seeds are obtained by calculating s-process nucleosynthesis in the material accreted onto a carbon-oxygen white dwarf from a binary companion. A fine grid of s-seeds at…

Uncertainties in the production of p nuclides in thermonuclear supernovae determined by Monte Carlo variations
Thermonuclear supernovae originating from the explosion of a white dwarf accreting mass from a companion star have been suggested as a site for the production of p nuclides. Such nuclei are produced
Role of core-collapse supernovae in explaining Solar System abundances of p nuclides
The production of the heavy stable proton-rich isotopes between 74Se and 196Hg -- the p nuclides -- is due to the contribution from different nucleosynthesis processes, activated in different types
TESTING THE ROLE OF SNe Ia FOR GALACTIC CHEMICAL EVOLUTION OF p-NUCLEI WITH TWO-DIMENSIONAL MODELS AND WITH s-PROCESS SEEDS AT DIFFERENT METALLICITIES
The bulk of p isotopes is created in the gamma processes mainly by sequences of photodisintegrations and beta decays in explosive conditions in Type Ia supernovae (SNIa) or in core collapse

The production of proton-rich isotopes beyond iron: The γ-process in stars
Beyond iron, a small fraction of the total abundances in the Solar System is made of proton-rich isotopes, the p-nuclei. The clear understanding of their production is a fundamental challenge for
Short-Lived Radioisotope ^{98}Tc Synthesized by the Supernova Neutrino Process.
TLDR
It is shown that, if the initial abundance were to be precisely measured, the ^{98}Tc nuclear cosmochronometer could be used to evaluate a much more precise value of the duration time from the last core-collapse supernova to the formation of the solar system.
Galactic Chemical Evolution of Radioactive Isotopes
The presence of short-lived ($\sim$\,Myr) radioactive isotopes in meteoritic inclusions at the time of their formation represents a unique opportunity to study the circumstances that led to the
Origin of the p-process radionuclides 92Nb and 146Sm in the early solar system and inferences on the birth of the Sun
TLDR
Radioactive nuclei present in the early solar system are used to derive that at least 10 million years passed between the last of these explosions and the birth of the Sun, lending further support to the idea that the Sun was born in a massive star-forming region together with many thousands of stellar siblings.
Monte Carlo Investigation of the Ratios of Short-lived Radioactive Isotopes in the Interstellar Medium
Short-lived radioactive nuclei (SLR) with mean lives below ∼100 Myr provide us with unique insights into current galactic nucleosynthetic events, as well as events that contributed to the material of

TLDR
The U/Th abundance ratio in meteorites can be used, in conjunction with observations of low-metallicity stars in the halo of the Milky Way, to determine the U/ Th production ratio very precisely, which can be use in future studies to constrain the possible nuclear mass formulae used in r-process calculations.
